Ecclestone in pole position for grand prix of matrimony
Fresh off of the controversy-filled Bahrain Grand Prix, Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone seems to be heading for marriage again with his two-year girlfriend, 36-year-old Brazilian Attorney Fabiana Flosi. The F1 ring-leader and grand prix commercial rights boss divorced Slavica Ecclestone in 2009 but has since reconsidered his vow to remain single.
Flosi was involved in the marketing of the Brazilian Grand Prix when Ecclestone met her and the have been together for two years and even survived a savage attack/mugging that left Ecclestone badly bruised and battered and without his famed Hublot watch. Daily Mail quotes Ecclestone as saying:
“We are officially engaged — and it is not going to be a long engagement either,” he is quoted as saying. “We are so happy and it’s just a case of when we get married, not if, though we haven’t fixed a time or place yet.
“We get on enormously well. We have been together for two years and what makes it work is that Fabiana has a really good sense of humour — and when you live with me you need to have a sense of humour. Though I must say I am absolutely no trouble at home and I think she is lucky to have me.”
You know, he’s 45 years younger and his new fiancee is close to his daughters age but then Mr. E has always done things his own way and more power to him. F1B offers our congratulations to the happy couple and best wishes for the future.
