Ecclestone: Rules can not be changed

Bernie Ecclestone said that Formula 1 will have to learn to live with these rules. After the race seen in Bahrain many people ask an immediate change of the F1 regulation. Some wonder why teams have different tire options, maybe with softer tires will be forced to stop twice. Red Bull proposed two mandatory stops. Reactivating the refueling is out of the question due to the design of the car for 2010.

Bernie admitted that the rules can`t be changed.

"We can not change the rules," said the Briton to the German newspaper Bild Zeitung. "It would take a long time and it`s very difficult. The F1 now is democracy. Teams have voted these rules, so now they must adapt."
