Governance: Legal issues on the sale and running of Formula One

As has been extensively reported in the media, Formula One (F1) Chief Executive, Bernie Ecclestone, is charged by German prosecutors with paying a bribe to influence the sale of a stake in F1 during 2005.

As well as examining the background to Ecclestone’s trial, this article analyses previous EU case law relating to F1, and its relevance for future F1 stakeholders.
