Bernie Ecclestone to face German court

So the case against Bernie is finally to go to court in Germany after being dragged through lower regional courts for nearly a decade.

Bernie of course denies that he bribed a German banker to smooth the deal which sold the greatest part of Bernie’s F1 rights to a pan-European group of investment bankers.

The prosecutors case as so far stated seems to rely solely upon evidence from the imprisoned German banker.

I find it very curious that this has rumbled on for so long before any charges have actually been laid against Bernie.

The whole thing is almost Machiavellian which perhaps seems apt as Bernie is involved BUT let’s see what other evidence appears. I’m ready to believe Bernie is  shrewd, manipulative, a tough negotiator but a criminal? I don’t believe so, he is simply not that stupid.

Time will tell…
