‘Bernie’ biography faces new delay

Tue, 16 October 2007, 06:18

The release of Bernie Ecclestone’s long awaited authorised biography has been postponed.

‘Bernie’, written by Susan Watkins – the wife of the 76-year-old’s personal friend and former F1 doctor Prof. Sid Watkins – was due to finally hit the shelves in October after years in the making.

But the German newspaper Bild-Zeitung says the book will now not be seen until next May at the earliest.

Publishers Ebury Press announced earlier in 2007 that ‘Bernie’ will reveal “the true struggle behind his fortune, the background to his relationships with politics and what reality, if any, there is to his detractor’s accusations”.

On the cover, the diminutive billionaire and F1 chief executive is quoted as recalling his request to the author that: “It must be open and it must be honest.”
