Todt, Ecclestone questioned as part of Italian GP probe - report

Written by  May 08, 2018

FIA president Jean Todt and former Formula 1 CEO Bernie Ecclestone are among a number of high-profile names questioned as part of a probe into the finances surrounding the Italian GP.

The race at the historic Monza circuit has been under threat in recent years with deals done to secure the short-term future of one of the sport's biggest events.

However, a report in Italy says an investigation has been underway since 2012 with upto 82 race insiders involved.

The allegations include money laundering through tax evasion by creating false invoices relating to driver sponsorship deals with Todt implicated in one such contract by overstating the money given to then-Marussia driver Jules Bianchi.
