You won’t want to miss this interview with our friend Christian Sylt of Formula Money as we discuss:

  • Ecclestone court case in Germany…will he be convicted? If so, what would happen?
  • What would life in F1 be like in a post-Ecclestone world?
  • Who actually owns Formula 1 and what control do they have over who else might want to own shares
  • What is Gene Haas and Haas Formula doing next as an American team in F1?
  • How did Flavio Briatore gamble on Fernando Alonso and win?
  • Who is the biggest power broker in F1…even more so than CVC?

We talk about all of this and more. If you’d like to understand more about the sport from the top down, then this is an interview to listen to.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed this podcast. Many thanks to Christian Sylt and NC for the interesting dicussions and information reveals. F1 is a panto, even at corporate levels. ;-)

    • Thanks mate. Chris makes it easy, you just need to get him on the line and you’re hooked. :) It’s a tough game trying to divine the business of F1 and many claim to have divine knowledge but Chris does a good job of pulling the info together and arranging it so we can discuss it. :)

    Does Chris know if Bernie has any succession plan?
    With the outcome of the court case possibly meaning that e would lose control of F1 before he planned, I wonder if he has made any plans for F1’s future. Ecclestone created the business from scratch, following his eventual departure there will be a power vacuum, and if there is no successor nominated the sport could implode.
