“It’s basically bully-boy behavior and bullying is never okay,” Ecclestone told Sky Sports News. “We shouldn’t be acting like that. But that’s the big difference between us and them, that they’re not any of us. When you hit them after things like that they say, ‘Well, you’re getting so much trouble from us, maybe you’re just going to get rid of yourself,’ and they do. That’s just totally bad.”

Drivers and former drivers reacted to the comments.

Verstappen has tweeted a link to a report that F1 drivers voted their support for Verstappen, saying “they cannot accept someone being bullied or being ruined. #godshoes.”

Earlier this season, Valtteri Bottas told Verstappen to keep his hands off a wheel in practice, reportedly at Bahrain GP.

• There was further speculation that Formula One could be headed for an American takeover.

Several American media outlets have reported that Liberty Media is making a takeover offer for F1. F1 would need to change its bylaws to allow it to be bought, which is expected to take at least a few months.
