Greater Noida: Formula One CEO Bernie Ecclestone has distanced himself from the storm kicked up by Ferrari's decision to have the Italian navy's flag on its cars during the Indian Grand Prix, saying the national association should look into such "political matters".

Ferrari has decided to carry the Italian navy's flag on its cars during practice for the race to show solidarity with the country's two navy marines who are facing trial here for shooting two Indian fishermen in the Indian Ocean.

Asked to react on the matter, Ecclestone said the sport has nothing to do with any "political" issue.
