F1 on cusp of corruption scandal

Formula 1 could be on a cusp of a new corruption scandal. Handelsblatt, a German business newspaper, claims the FIA “received millions from the race series’ rights owner, the F1 Group”.

“But for what?” the report added. “British investigators are now looking into it.”

The newspaper said the mysterious payment was to the tune of $190 million.

Mayor not yet backing Copenhagen F1 plans

Copenhagen is not yet backing plans for a F1 street race in the Danish capital.

We reported recently that Danish businessman Lars Seier Christensen met with F1 owner Liberty Media about a potential deal, with a circuit to be devised by Hermann Tilke.

“This is necessary before we decide whether we – the municipality – can support the project,” he told BT newspaper.
