Bernie Ecclestone (L), CEO and president of F1's governing body, and his lawyer Sven Thomas wait at the courtroom in Munich, southern Germany, where another session of the trial against a former head of risk management at Bavarian bank BayernLB was to be held on November 10, 2011. Former head of risk management at Bavarian bank BayernLB Gerhard Gribkowsky is charged with corruption, abuse of confidence and tax evasion, after overseeing the sale of BayernLB's commercial rights stake to private equity firm CVC Capital Partners in early 2006. Bernie Ecclestone has admitted to paying Gribkowsky a total of 44 million dollars in 2006 and 2007 from himself and his family holding company Bambino Trust.
