Moves afoot to replace Ecclestone at helm of F1
26 November, 2012
“F1 could soon have a new ruler,” said the SID wire report.
The Suddeutsche Zeitung said that there are “detailed preparations” being made to potentially replace the 82-year-old Briton, if Munich prosecutors decide to charge him with corruption over the Gerhard Gribkowsky bribery scandal.
The report said that Delta Topco, the Formula One Group’s majority CVC-owned holding company, is considering stepping Ecclestone down and replacing him with an interim chief executive if “as expected” he is charged in the coming weeks.
