BERLIN (AP) - Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone says the furor over his reported comment that Adolf Hitler got "things done" is a misunderstanding.

The German daily newspaper Bild quoted Ecclestone in a story published Monday as saying that "this was all a big misunderstanding."

The World Jewish Congress had called for Ecclestone to resign after his comments appeared in The Times of London on Saturday.

The flap comes ahead of the German Grand Prix at the Nuerburgring circuit on Sunday.
