Ecclestone unhappy Pirelli green light taking so long

Bernie Ecclestone is not happy that the formula one circus departed Turkey last weekend without resolving the issue of tyre supply for 2011.

The sport touched down at Istanbul Park amid strong speculation that Pirelli had been selected and would be confirmed as F1's new supplier by the time the event was over.

But according to Germany's Auto Motor und Sport, it was FOTA's powerful teams McLaren, Ferrari and Renault who invited Michelin's Nick Shorrock to make a presentation to all the teams on Sunday.

Indeed, Shorrock indicated to Auto Hebdo in an interview that Michelin's proposal had not substantially changed.
