Ecclestone to attend Singapore GP with Chase Carey

Bernie Ecclestone has had a change of heart regarding his attendance at this weekend’s Singapore grand prix.

Earlier, amid the high-profile sale of the sport to Liberty Media, the F1 chief executive said he would stay in London to help existing owners CVC with the transaction.

But the German newspaper Bild reports that Ecclestone, 85, has “changed his mind”.

Not only that, the Briton will reportedly be trackside at the glitzy night race with Chase Carey, who will be F1’s new executive chairman.

It was announced that Ecclestone has inked a new three-year deal to stay in his role, but other reports suggest he will actually leave F1 at the end of 2016.

Indeed, his old sparring partner and former FIA president Max Mosley thinks it is possible Ecclestone will “walk away”.

“These people may take a more active role and they want to sort of run the business but that could bring them into conflict with Bernie,” Mosley told BBC radio.

“If Chase Carey is a person of real ability and he wants to understand and he’s clever, I think he’ll get along fine with Bernie,” he added.
