Bernie stays in Europe
Ecclestone is certainly busy, trying to negotiate a settlement between the various parties involved in the future of Formula 1. It had been thought that things were moving on well but the announcement by the GPWC, after several months of inactivity, that everything is in order and going to plan has reopened issues which were thought to be closed.
It is worth noting that there were stories at Indianapolis that Ferrari decided to send its equipment to the United States using its own transport rather than relying as usual on Formula One's freight planes. This is an interesting development and a sign that there is friction between Ferrari and FOM.
