Ecclestone helped injured Newey with F1 return

Bernie Ecclestone pulled strings to help Red Bull gets its technical boss back up and running. It has emerged that Adrian Newey missed several races this season following a serious cycling crash that required multiple surgeries. He was back on the pitwall in Turkey, where Red Bull’s title rival Mercedes had a clear competitive advantage. “It was really tough,” said Dr Helmut Marko when asked about Newey’s absence. Fortunately, Bernie Ecclestone happened to be in Croatia at the same time. “Bernie is close to the authorities in Croatia,” Marko, talking to, said of the 90-year-old former F1 supremo. “But we are outsiders on all four of the other circuits,” the Austrian said.
