London: Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone has said that the sport continues to have too many teams. This despite the departure of the HRT outfit at the end of the 2012 season.

There currently are 11 teams which will compete in the 2013 seasons but Ecclestone has been quoted as saying that he won't mind another team going off the list. "It's just that 10 is a lot easier to handle - for the promoters, for transport. We'd rather have 10, so long as we don't lose Ferrari," he said.

HRT has been looking for a buyer after it went into liquidation but Ecclestone, when asked for his opinion on the matter, said that he does not believe anybody would want to buy the team (read: HRT not in the list of teams for 2013).
