Bernie, Sauber absent in Japan

2010-10-07 08:56
Two prominent figureheads of F1's travelling circus are conspicuously absent at Suzuka.

According to the Swiss newspaper Blick, the sport's chief executive Bernie Ecclestone - who turns 80 in three weeks - did not want to travel the 9 000km from Europe to Japan.

And team founder and boss Peter Sauber is not at Suzuka this weekend because he has accepted an invitation to attend a wedding.

The lucky groom is Carlos Slim Domit, the chairman of Sauber's new major sponsor Telmex and heir to his father Carlos Slim Helu's many billions.

43-year-old Slim Jr's wedding is taking place in his native Mexico City.
