64-year-old Irish-American executive Chase Carey, who is the chief executive officer and executive chairman of the Formula One Group, has recently given himself a passing grade regarding his activity during the Liberty Media era.
In a time when many people look back at the Bernie Ecclestone era with fondness, Chase Carey says the signs have been better in the sport’s new era: “It is too early to celebrate.” – he said, as reported earlier today by the Italian daily newspaper dedicated to coverage of various sports La Gazzetta dello Sport – “But it is interesting that in Germany some people came to me and said that it was more fun than it was two years ago. We are well on the way to improving the show on and off the track. We’ve seen some great races, and the fight at the top is very exciting.” – Formula One’s chief executive added.
And he said that Liberty Media’s ambition is to keep making Formula 1 more entertaining: “Formula 1 is all about the heroes who stimulate people’s imaginations, just like in the movies,” said Chase Carey. “We have strong brands and great teams here, but ultimately it’s the drivers who play the main role in this sport.” – the Irish-American executive concluded, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
