    Bernie steps down... http://bit.ly/LjLFvB
    Claims of bribery by prosecutors in Germany continue to haunt Bernie Ecclestone, with the allegations getting so serious that the British billionaire and Formula One figurehead was finally indicted last summer. The 83-year-old has since stepped down from the board of the company which runs F1, Delta Topco, though he will continue to run its day-to-day operations.

    Bernie’s got to be guilty of something but he is Bernie.

    The $44 million payment in question was made surrounding the sale of F1 to CVC Capital Partners (which owns Delta Topco) in 2005 as Ecclestone sought to acquire the shares held by Gribkowsky's bank, BayernLB. In 2012, Gribkowsky admitted to taking the money from Ecclestone and was found guilty of tax evasion and bribery,earning an eight-and-a-half-year prison sentence.

    Man things are starting to move.
    Ron Dennis just pulled a coup and is now again in charge of the F1 side of McLaren.
    So is Whitmarsh out?

    I can't stand Whitmarsh. Wouldn't be sad to see him go.

    Jan.17 (GMM) Bernie Ecclestone's demise may now have begun, as the F1 chief executive stepped down from the sport's board.


    The news on Thursday followed hot on the heels of confirmation that Munich prosecutors are indeed sending the 83-year-old Briton's involvement in the Gerhard Gribkowsky bribery scandal to trial this year.


    So the F1 holding company, Delta Topco, announced that Ecclestone "will step down as a director with immediate effect" until "the case has been resolved".


    The statement said Ecclestone will continue to run F1 "on a day to day basis", but only "subject to increased monitoring and control by the board".


    "Mr Ecclestone has agreed to these arrangements," it added.


    Germany's SID news agency said the trial will begin in late April, but Red Bull's Dr Helmut Marko said it would not be unusual if a verdict is not known for "three or four years".

    Nearly a week until Jerez.

    Looks like Kobayashi got a seat with Caterham. Awesome.
    He'll keep the backmarker teams and their young drivers honest.

    Koooooooobayashi! I love watching him. Super aggressive and creative when passing. Like Grosjean, but less debris afterwards.
