 Bernie Ecclestone attempts to shrug off court ruling
Bernie Ecclestone has attempted to shrug off Monday’s court ruling, which found in favour of the three banks holding a 75 per cent stake in Formula One, by making a substantial cash offer to the sport’s ten teams in an attempt to prevent a breakaway series.
According to sources, Ecclestone has said that he is prepared to put around £300million on the table to prevent the breakaway - and to prevent his stakeholding, as well as that of the banks, from being rendered worthless.
And, whilst he also told reporters that the High Court ruling amounted to little in the scheme of things, Ecclestone also intimated that he was prepared to work with the banks to ensure the future of Formula One.
