BBC Furious After Ron Dennis Prank

Posted by Mark on July 13, 2010 | No Comments

It has been reported that Ron Dennis has angered the BBC after he cut the wires to Eddie Jordan’s custom made earpieces during the post race show at Silverstone. This meant he couldn’t hear the production crew properly and when a standard set of earpieces was hurriedly supplied, they kept falling out.

Dennis appeared in the background behind Eddie Jordan during a post race interview with Christian Horner, but then quickly disappeared with a big grin on his face. As Jordan began to interview Horner he realised that he had no sound to his earpieces, and when a BBC technician inspected  the equipment he found that the wires from the control box to his earpieces had been cut.

The BBC are not amused that equipment paid for by the public has been damaged by Dennis, it will be interesting to see if any further action is taken…..
