Bernie denies

Bernie Ecclestone has told The Times that he had nothing to do with the revelations about FIA President Max Mosley's sex life, as revealed in March by the News of the World.

"It’s nothing to do with me at all," Ecclestone said. "You must be joking. Secondly, this sort of thing is not my style - not the sort of way I would operate. Thirdly, there is no way in the world that I would want to destroy Max."

Tomorrow's meeting of the FIA World Motor Sport Council is expected to see Mosley move against Ecclestone, with the proposal of a major rethink of F1 finance. Ecclestone says that the FIA cannot do such things because of existing contracts.

In the next week the first of Mosley's legal actions will come to court in the UK and it will be interesting to see how the story develops.

One thing that is certainis that the next few days will be anything but dull.
