590 views

Bernie's lawyer and F1's chief legal officer Sacha Woodward-Hill will help lead Formula One once his trial starts.

Apr.20 (GMM) Bernie Ecclestone will lean heavily on the help of a 44-year-old woman when his corruption trial begins next week in Germany.

The F1 chief executive has already admitted he will need extra help when he is tied up in court for two days of every week in a bid to stay out of jail.

Britain's Daily Mail newspaper revealed that the person to whom the 83-year-old Briton's load will fall is Australian Sacha Woodward-Hill, already F1's chief legal officer.

"She has been involved in every major deal of recent years and holds 17 directorships in Formula One-connected businesses," said correspondent Jonathan McEvoy.

An insider confirmed: "He (Ecclestone) will rely on her more than ever while the court stuff is going on. She'll be Bernie's rock."

Ecclestone, whose trial begins next Thursday, is not in China this weekend.
