Formula 1 Chief Executive Bernie Ecclestone on Friday played down reports the sport’s board, led by owner CVC’s Donald Mackenzie, is preparing to oust him in the wake of a British judge finding that he indeed paid a bribe.
“I’ve spoken to Donald,” 83-year-old Ecclestone told the Telegraph. “It was nothing of any importance.
“The board] can’t understand how the judge has reached his conclusion. My lawyers can’t either. They have been through it all and they can’t find where I lied.” (GMM)
