COURT BATTLE: If convicted, Bernie Ecclestone could be ousted as F1's CEO.

SAO PAULO, Brazil - Formula 1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone has named Red Bull team boss Christian Horner as his ideal successor.

Ecclestone is locked in legal battles amid a corruption scandal with F1 owner CVC in November 2013 and understands that conviction could result in him being ousted.

Horner has always played down speculation naming him as an obvious successor though Ecclestone named Horner as the "ideal" man to reign in his stead.

Ecclestone wasa quoted by the Daily Mail: "Christian would be ideal for my job. I would be happy to hold his hand.  We could have a transitional period. It needs someone who knows the sport.

"If someone comes in from outside, a corporate type, I don't think I could work with them. It wouldn't last five minutes."
