Branson wants clean and cheap racing

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Virgin boss Richard Branson has discussed what he would like to see in Formula 1 racing if his company were to become involved.

However he refrained from clarifying whether or not he was in discussions to take over the Honda F1 team:

If we were in discussions I wouldn’t be allowed to say it because there would be some kind of clause which would prohibit me talking about it.

I love Grands Prix. I think if Bernie Ecclestone can make it more cost effective for the likes of Virgin brand to come in to that sport and if he can champion clean motor car racing – which is possible to do by making sure that all the cars run on clean fuel – then at some stage we might be interested in getting involved.
