Ecclestone divorce is confirmed

Slavica Ecclestone has confirmed that she is starting divorce proceedings against her husband, F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone. The news will no doubt create some titillation in the press in England, but it is not expected to have any significant effect on the sport. Mrs Ecclestone does control large sums of money raised from the sport but beyond that has little say in the running of the business.
