FORT WORTH, Texas - An American motor racing personality has accused F1's Bernie Ecclestone of being repeatedly "foolish".

Eddie Gossage, the president of the Texas Motor Speedway, has blasted the F1 chief executive for scheduling the 2014 US GP on the same November date as the major Nascar sprint cup race, in the same state.


Gossage told AP news agency: "I absolutely think it's foolish. I can't say I was surprised because Bernie Ecclestone does a lot of foolish things.

"It's just not smart. There's 52 weeks in the year. But that was the only weekend that F1 could make it work in Austin? Give me a break."
