Bernie Ecclestone has revealed that he is planning to launch a masters series for former Formula One drivers. It would see superstar drivers such as Nigel Mansell and Nelson Piquet return to racing. Ferrari race-winner Gerhard Berger says “I am sure that it will be successful and that all former drivers would like to participate.”

“A series with former drivers is a good idea,” says Mr Ecclestone. “We have talked about it and it is something we ought to do. Many of these old drivers are still absolutely good enough. You would put them in the cars they used to drive.”

Former driver Martin Brundle, who is now a television pundit, says “whatever the format I’d want to be part of it especially if it was supporting the F1 calendar.” Eddie Irvine, who almost won the F1 title in 1999, admits that “it’s not for me personally” but adds “I think the fans would love it and some drivers too.”
