Dwarfing Misogyny

Rising star female racing driver Jamie Chadwick puts ‘Bungling Bernie’ Ecclestone in his place and dismisses his ridiculous misogynist views

 

The first ever female and youngest ever winner of the British GT Championship Jamie Chadwick was interviewed in The Guardian last weekend.

 

Speaking to the paper’s Giles Richards, 19-year-old Chadwick criticized Bernie Ecclestone’s 2016 remarks at an advertising conference about female participation in F1 in London. At the time ‘Bungling Bernie’ remarked: “I don’t know whether a woman would physically be able to drive an F1 car quickly, and they wouldn’t be taken seriously.”

 

In response, Chadwick candidly stated: “[Ecclestone’s views are] not based on any fact. If I can prove him wrong that’s just added motivation… Everywhere I have gone everyone has respected that I am there to do a job. If I don’t do it I get the same bollocking a male driver would get and if I do I get the same praise.”

 

She added: “You don’t want a female to be there as a token effort. You have to have made it on merit. The worst thing that could happen would be if you put someone in who could not compete. It would make a mockery of those who are trying to achieve good things.”

 

Back in 2016, at the same conference, Ecclestone shared other views that were not exactly considered logical. He also bizarrely suggested that Vladimir Putin “should be running Europe” and expressed his support for Donald Trump to become 45th POTUS. In his dotage, one is left wondering if this little dwarf-like man has been spending too much time watching One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.

  1. I am disgusted by Mr Ecclestone’s comments. The young lady is plainly going to go far in her career and I hope The Bern is made to eat his words and apologise.

  2. Bernie is right!!!!!!!!!!!!! Women should not be allowed behind the wheel!!!!!!!!!!!!! And he supported the hero MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN so he’s joining my lists of heroes!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go Bernie, go!!!!!!!!!!

  3. What a stupid thing to criticise…….. But what can we expect of this site? You make fun of Rolf Harris ………. An innocent man…….. And now you mock Bernie Ecclestone……… A very clever and able man who has made a great vast fortune and looked after so many around him………. Rolf is the same……… Kind and considerate and why you don’t like Donald Trump escapes me…….. I think you ought to offer apologetics to both Bernie and Rolf. Rolf Harris is innocent and you all know it.

    1. Oh go away you stupid mis informed idiot, you’ve got your convicted pedophile free now.
      Why don’t you just pop around to his gaff and share snaps together, and please give us all a break here.

    2. Not you again, you prat. Harris should be deported back to Australia. We don’t like paedos here. Rod may care to welcome him, Wrecking Balls in hand to do some gonad reduction.

  4. I have to disagree. Having met Bernie on many many occasions he is always supportive of women. Yes, he sometimes has out dated views as per his generation but is never dismissive. He listens, absorbs, thinks and then comes back to you with an extremely well thought out view.

  5. The girl is better than Bernie.

    He is old, on his last legs and his career is ending.

    She is about to speed into F1 and a great future.

    I know who I’d rather spend time with!
