Ecclestone not concerned over case

Bernie Ecclestone says he doesn't feel worried about F1's bribery case as he 'isn't guilty' of anything
Bernie Ecclestone says he doesn't feel he will face any charges in F1's bribery cases as he 'isn't guilty' of anything illegal.

Investigations into the case that has seen banker Gerhard Gribkowsky jailed already are still ongoing, with Ecclestone having said that any charges could end his time in F1.

The commercial rights holder has however now insisted that he doesn't feel that there is any reason for him to be concerned, expressing confidence that he won't even be called to appear in court over any charges.

"I would be worried if I was guilty!" he was quoted as telling Corriere della Sera. "But I'm not! Are they trying to entrap me? I don't know and I don't care! All I know is that people try anything when money is involved!

"It won't get to me appearing in court."

The case revolves around payments made to Gribkowsky when he was overseeing the sale of F1 to current owners CVC.

While Ecclestone hasn't denied making a payment to the banker, he has always maintained that the money wasn't any kind of a bribe.
