Cancelling the race was WRONG! Bernie Ecclestone agrees with Lewis Hamilton over farcical Belgian GP as the ex-F1 supremo says he would NOT have abandoned the race – instead leaving final decision to the 20 drivers

Bernie Ecclestone says he would not have called off Sunday’s Belgian Grand Prix but left the decision whether to race up to individual drivers. The former Formula One supremo told Sportsmail: ‘I would have said at 3pm when the race was due to start, let’s try again at 4pm or 4.30pm. ‘If I wanted to score points for the team and for myself, I might think I wanted to go ahead. ‘We have raced in worse conditions than that and not called off the race.’. Hamilton said the decision to go ahead was commercial – two laps being the required minimum distance for a classified race.
