The long-awaited sale of Formula One to an American media group is to be completed next week, according to media reports on Sunday.

The well-sourced German magazine Auto Motor und Sport said that the sport's veteran commercial ring-master Bernie Ecclestone had confirmed the deal at the Italian Grand Prix.

The magazine reported that Ecclestone said Liberty Media, backed by American media tycoon John Malone, will make the first of two payments on Tuesday in a deal valued at 8.5 billion dollars (7.6 billion euros, £6.5 billion).

If that goes through, according to well-informed paddock sources, current owners CVC Capital Parners, who hold a 35 percent stake, will leave the sport.

CVC Capital Parners, who invested in the sport in 2006, previously sold a 21 percent share to US-based fund manager Waddell & Reed in 2012, while also selling shares to another American investment group, BlackRock, and Norwegian bank Norges.

Liberty Media Group, which is listed on the New York Stock Exchange, is expected to take control of the company that will run Formula One.

Ecclestone, 85, said his future with the business would remain in his hands. He told Auto Motor Und Sport: "I will do what I have always done. What role I play is my decision."

Ecclestone, whose mother-in-law was kidnapped in Brazil recently, did not respond to questions about the sale when asked ahead of Sunday's race at Monza.

Others who have looked at a deal to buy the motorsport include Qatar Sports Investments, the owners of Paris Saint-Germain football club, and Stephen Ross, the owner of American football team the Miami Dolphins.

The sport's glamorous reputation has been hit in recent years by a lack of genuine sporting interest due to the domination of first Red Bull and then Mercedes, with global viewing figures dipping as a consequence.

The time is bullshit.

Watch the video. The SV starts and stops in different spots.

You're right, how can the people that list the times, not see that? It would take him another 3 seconds or more from where they stop the clock to reach where they started it.

I've just entered in the GT Sports Trophy category. Anyone else lining up in this category?  130km/h max speed, half cage and helmets required, timed event, $2495. I'll use the RS or GT4.

How well does the Tesla handle?

this may sound defeatist. but it's one of the strong arguments in my mind to not bother with kids. I genuinely believe that the human race is doomed to disappear within a few hundred years.
I made that decision as a teen decades ago. I didnt want to have kids and leave them to live in what the world is becoming.

Right now the government needs to pick up the kids in Melbourne that are roaming the streets in gangs and the families of those kids and deport them back to the holes they came from, even if the kids were born here. A show of strength like that might fix the problem but while the government treats these kids weakly it will continue to get worse.
