Formula One chief executive Bernie Ecclestone arrives in court in Munich April 24, 2014. Ecclestone went on trial for bribery in Germany on Thursday in a case that could see the Briton's long dominance of the motor sport ended by a jail sentence of up to 10 years. Prosecutors in Munich have charged Ecclestone, 83, with bribing jailed German banker Gerhard Gribkowsky to smooth the sale eight years ago of a stake in Formula One to private equity firm CVC. Ecclestone denies wrongdoing and says he will fight to clear his name. REUTERS/Michaela Rehle (GERMANY - Tags: BUSINESS CRIME LAW SPORT MOTORSPORT HEADSHOT TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY) less
