Ex-Formula One chief Bernie Ecclestone's daughter Tamara says her dad is a softie
Tamara Ecclestone says, contrary to popular belief, her father and former Formula One chief Bernie is a softie
Former Formula One manager Bernie Ecclestone is known to have made some tough calls in the world of motorsport — decisions that were devoid of any emotion and were only dictated by business sense. However, his daughter, Tamara, 33, says her father is anything but emotionless. In an interview with British newspaper, The Guardian, Tamara speaks of how her father was a huge emotional help to her and her sister, Petra, 28, in their early days.
"My sister and I weren't exactly princesses to my dad but he was soft," says Tamara, a model, who is married to Essex businessman, Jay Rutland. "If my mum was screaming about something, we would always look to dad to calm her down," she adds.
In fact, Bernie, was very understanding when it came to his daughter's relationships too. "Whenever I have needed him — any bad break-up, any advice, anything — he has always been there. A lot of people think of him as completely emotionless, but he's not like that."
