Madrid: Western Europe is "finished" as a top Formula One racing destination and will soon host only five Grand Prix races, the sport's supremo Bernie Ecclestone said on Tuesday.
"I think in the next few years Europe will be left with only five races," Ecclestone was quoted as saying in an interview with top Spanish sports daily Marca.
"I think Europe is finished. It will be a good place for tourism but little else. Europe is a thing of the past."
