Bahrain’s pitlane was buzzing with suggestions that Bernie ecclestone may bid to wrest back a majority stake in Formula 1. Ecclestone currently holds a 17.5 percent state in the holding company of F1’s commercial rights, Delta Copco. CVC Capital, which acquired a 63 percent stake in F1 in 2005, has since diluted its holding to 35.5 percent but still holds voting rights over stakes held by other entities. While CVC has made a great deal of money out of its F1 investment, its Co-Chairman Donald Mackenzie is on the record as having said that if Ecclestone was found guilty of bribery charges he faces in Germany, he would be fired from his position of Chief Executive. Ecclestone stood down from the Formula One board in January. His trial is due to start in Munich later this month. Ecclestone is thought to have the backing of some of the sport’s strongest identities, including Red Bull’s Dietrich Mateschitz and Ferrari’s Luca di Montezemelo, should he bid to increase his stake. Since the start of the season, the 83-year-old, who has run the sport for four decades, has been publicly critical of the look of the cars, the lack of sound they make and quality of the racing. But there are theories that the reason for the criticism may be part of a larger plan to compromise the attraction of the sport to fans, reduce its value and eventually, make it easier to increase his stake in the sport. The man on the right once drove for the man on the left ... then walked out on him! Both are now F1 power-brokers. 7 GPWEEK.com // 7 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS:
