F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone supports drivers' demand for `maximum attack` tyres

Johannesburg: Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone has thrown his support behind drivers' demand that the sport should bring in higher-performance tyres.

Earlier, Grand Prix Drivers' Association chairman Alexander Wurz had disclosed that racers wanted tyre supplier Pirelli to supply them with tyres that will support 'maximum-attack' racing.

The F1 Supremo always defended Pirelli's heavily-degrading tyres, saying that it is good for the 'show'.

However, Ecclestone hinted a re-think in his approach as he agrees 'a million percent' with the drivers, Sport24 reported.

Ecclestone also said that he has discussed the issue with Pirelli and confirmed that a meeting will be held at the tyre dealer's Milan headquarters early next week.
