FIA president Jean Todt has warned the competing F1 teams – and any commercial partners who want to get involved in the future running of the sport – that they may be putting the cart before the horse when it comes to supporting plans for current commercial rights holder CVC Capital Partners to sell out to a new consortium. Todt’s observations come at the end of a month of speculative frenzy over whether Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation, together with Italian investment consortium EXOR, might get together to make CVC an offer it cannot refuse.
