Bernie replied: “I wanted to be a father. Actually Fabiana wanted to be a mum as well and I didn’t realise that being a father, which now I am, how good it is to your life. Well, to my life anyway. I don’t know about anybody else.”
The duo also touched on racism in Formula 1 and if he would have more children but viewers slammed the chat as a “car crash”.
“Omg that interview was the worst. I cringed all the way through Grimacing face #BernieEcclestone #thismorning,” one viewer shared.
A second posted: “Did anyone else just cringe through Bernie Ecclestone on @thismorning with @Schofe & @hollywills?”
