In F1, Rossi ‘would have been disqualified for sure’

25 Nov, 2015

Ecclestone says, if it was F1, that Rossi would have been disqualified.

Rossi would have been disqualified for sure. Or he would have been shown the black flag. [The situation between Rossi and Marquez] is a warning for F1. I’ll give you an example: let’s suppose Ferrari is en route for the title and Mercedes block them with one of their customer teams, what would happen then?

On whether Rossi could have switched to F1 (he tested for Ferrari) from MotoGP.

In bikes he was at the top as far as importance and earnings are concerned, while in F1 he would have had to start from scratch. He did the right thing in not switching.
