These are very much along the same lines as interview comments made by David Bowie in the mid-1970s that Britain needed a fascist dictatorship. Bowie at least has the excuse that he was coked out of his box at the time. I'm not sure if the same is true of Ecclestone, but in essence, who gives a shit?
Ecclestone also defended low tax rates for high earners like Lewis Hamilton (who is nowadays a Swiss tax exile), as if "offers an incentive". I'd like to impose a 105% tax rate (say) on Bernie Ecclestone, as it would "offer an incentive" for him to f*** off to Switzerland and set up a fascist dictatorship there, if he so chooses.
