F1 drivers too clinical with media says Ebel

Retiring Formula 1 personality Kai Ebel says the sport’s stars, and even the celebrities at the grands prix, have become “too clinical” when speaking to the media. For almost 30 years, the always colourfully-dressed German has been a Formula 1 reporter for the broadcaster RTL. Both Ebel and RTL are departing F1 after Sunday’s Abu Dhabi GP. “There were fewer and fewer characters, so when two of them were fighting you were always happier. But then always everyone in the teams clapped their hands over their heads in panic. There were always a few others who were bluntly straightforward,” Ebel continued.
