Bernie Ecclestone maybe an octogenarian, but that has not made him softer in any sense of the term.  Ecclestone replying to questions from the media at the Buddh International Circuit said that there was no question of renegotiating the contract terms with the organizers of the Korean GP saying that whatever is the situation now was reached after the Koreans had already driven a hard bargain.  When asked if he would not mind dropping the Korean event from the calender, he replied in the affirmative.  With a new deal signed for a second race in the USA and a race set to come up in Russia and India trying for a second race, it is perhaps unsurprising that Ecclestone is playing hard ball.
