Ecclestone Wants Cheats Named

Thursday April 13th, 2000

Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone wants any teams found to be breaching the rules regarding traction control named.

Responding to last week's press conference by FIA president Max Mosley where Mosley claimed that a team may have cheated last season as they were using traction control, Ecclestone said it was essential any culprits were named to stop the whispers which have seen fingers pointed at every team along pit-lane.

"If they have the evidence then the FIA should name the team they believe is cheating," Ecclestone told Autosport magazine.

"At the moment a cloud of suspicion is hanging over everyone and the finger is being pointed all over the place. It is affecting everyone which is not fair."

Mosley said he would not reveal the name of the alleged culprits until FIA had 100 percent proof of a transgression.
