"I don't think I've done things to be recognized gentleman"

Bernie Ecclestone reveals that he rejected the Order of the British Empire in 1996 for his services to sports and job creation in the United Kingdom.


"About 20 years ago they offered it to me and I rejected it. I don't particularly agree with these things and I really don't think I've done things that deserve any recognition from anyone," Bernie Ecclestone tells 'The Guardian' revealing that he rejected in 1996 the Order of the British Empire who wanted to grant him for his services to sports and job creation in the United Kingdom. The former F1 chief is not the perfect definition of what is politically correct and far from leaving the subject there, he added: "Everything I have done I did not propose to do something good for my country. If by chance it happened and I did something good. , but it was not my intention ".

Ecclestone does support Hamilton being recognized with the CBE as they are trying from various areas and circles in Britain: "There is no reason for Lewis not to receive it, he has done a great job for England, sure," said Ecclestone. Finally, the 89-year-old London billionaire says he does not pretend that people especially remember him when he is gone: "I have no legacy. I will disappear and I will be forgotten in a few months like most people. The world will move on, it will come new people and other things will happen. The world is moving very fast now. "
