Bernie Ecclestone has been spotted at the Olympic Games in Beijing.

But the F1 chief executive is not just there to while away the days in formula one’s August break, according to the British newspaper Daily Telegraph.

Ecclestone, 77, is instead at the Olympic velodrome “to see if he might learn something” from Dave Brailsford, the performance director for the British cycling team, the newspaper said.

Bailsford has been hailed for overseeing the cycling team’s notable showing in China.
