Ecclestone about art of negotiations and the Formula 1

In a conversation with the champion of 2016 Nico Rosberg Bernie Ecclestone spoke about success, happiness, cars and a modern Formula 1.

Question: You one of the most successful people in the world. You have made the Formula 1 global sport. What has served for you as an incentive to achieve such objectives?

Bernie Ecclestone: I don't differ from many others: when you begin something, you want to finish this business, without being interrupted.

Question: Many successful people said that they never concentrated on money - and you too. You were attracted more by love to the conclusion of transactions?

Bernie Ecclestone: Exactly. If you about something have asked me, then I did everything that depends on me. Besides, I liked to understand that I have perfectly performed the work. It gives pleasure.

Question: Did you seek to gain recognition of people around?

Bernie Ecclestone: No. I didn't want that someone told something. If pay me tribute - well, but I didn't want that constantly spoke about it. All businessmen have achieved success because good luck has smiled to them. All speak, this person - the real genius if has reached it. No, we were just lucky - that's all. It is that case when it has appeared in the right place in due time. When you get chance, it should be used. So many people say that they could make it too that it was their idea, but they haven't made it, and those who undertake this or that business try to obtain success.

Question: You were a racer - you loved sport? Or it has so turned out what you had had a chance to be engaged in this business?

Bernie Ecclestone: Everything has begun when I have bought the Brabham team - then I began to work with all teams.

Question: You one of the best negotiators. In what your secret of success?

Bernie Ecclestone: At first it is necessary to gain trust of people. I can go worldwide and conclude bargains, having shaken hands. Many large deals are so concluded.

Then these people said that the contract is necessary - differently they won't be able to satisfy terms of transaction. So happened to me many times. In my opinion, the fact that if you conclude with someone the bargain and you understand that has made a mistake, then it isn't necessary to complain is more important - it is necessary to continue work.

Question: The first step is how important? When the first price is called, all the rest relies on it. Unless not so?

Bernie Ecclestone: I so don't think. Still, as at business meetings: I am not sure that before a meeting its participants understand what is wanted to be reached.

Question: Do you precisely know what you want to reach?

Bernie Ecclestone: I try to explain to partners that I know what we want to reach. But when we leave a meeting, not always happens so that both of us imagine the desirable purpose.

Question: Did you make any mistakes in the life? Perhaps, it was wrong to rewrite the state to the ex-wife?

Bernie Ecclestone: In it there is nothing bad. I have rewritten on her everything that I had that she could dispose of it in case of my disease or death. But I about
