Bernie Ecclestone apologized over the weekend for his remarks regarding women in racing. Sort of.
Ecclestone made news last week with his comments made in response to Patrick's fourth-place finish at the Indianpolis 500.Boy does he have a lot to learn. Guys, you can think it all you want. But you should never, ever say it out loud. Especially if there's a reporter around.
Asked about Patrick's success, Ecclestone acknowledged her strong finish, but then made an assessment about women racing with men that caused a stir, saying, "You know I've got one of those wonderful ideas ... women should be dressed in white like all the other domestic appliances."
On Saturday, Patrick received a phone call from Ecclestone, in which he complimented her on her performance at the Indy 500. But Ecclestone caught Patrick off guard when he repeated to her his statement about women and "domestic appliances."
