It will be at least June before anything more is known about Bernie Ecclestone’s bribery charges.

It is believed Formula 1’s 82-year-old chief executive has been charged by Munich prosecutors regarding his payment of $44 million some years ago to now jailed former banker Gerhard Gribkowsky.

But a spokeswoman told German news agency DPA that the district court will not make a decision about how to proceed with the charges “within three to four weeks”.

She would not comment further.
