Bernie Ecclestone Says He’d ‘Take A Bullet’ For ‘First Class’ Putin During Shocking GMB Interview

Bernie Ecclestone has said he’d “take a bullet” for Vladimir Putin during a controversial interview on Thursday’s Good Morning Britain.

The former F1 boss described the Russian leader as a “first class person” during a discussion about the war in Ukraine with hosts Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway.

Bernie and Putin’s friendship reportedly blossomed after the pair were introduced at the Russian Grand Prix in 2014.

“I’d still take a bullet for him,” Bernie said of the Russian president after Kate asked if he still regarded him as a friend.

“I’d rather it didn’t hurt, but if it did I’d still take a bullet for him.

“He’s a first-class person. What he’s doing is something he believed is the right thing he was doing for Russia. Unfortunately, he’s like a lot of business people, like me, we make mistakes from time to time.”
