Formula One Still Likes Nazis

Hitler not all bad, auto-racing honcho says

Print Email

Formula One, the car-racing championship, is in trouble for a Nazi-related gaffe—again. This time, it’s Bernie Ecclestone, Formula One’s CEO, who’s in trouble, for telling the London Times that, while he’s partial to dictators in general for their way with an iron fist, Hitler was his favorite “in the way that he could command a lot of people able to get things done.” This comes a year after Ecclestone’s friend Max Mosley, the head of Formula One’s governing body (and the son of Oswald Mosley, founder of the British Union of Fascists), resigned after he was caught role-playing a Nazi S/M scene with a gaggle of prostitutes dressed as concentration camp inmates. Clearly, all of this is because cars are actually Nazis.
