A new biography of Mr. E

BERNIE ECCLESTONE has always enjoyed being a man of some mystery and an attempt a few years ago to produce a biography was not a great success.

We hear that Ecclestone has now agreed to work on a new book with the biographer Susan Watkins, who has previously written successful historical biographies on Queen Elizabeth I, Jane Austen and Mary Queen of Scots for the Thames and Hudson publishing company.

Watkins is a friend of Ecclestone's thanks to his lengthy relationship with her husband Professor Sid Watkins, the man behind Formula 1's safety campaign in recent years.
