MONTE CARLO, Monaco - A source at Formula 1's owners CVC, a private equity firm, have named CEO of the English Premier League Richard Scudamore as an ideal successor to the sport's embattled chief executive Bernie Ecclestone.

The 83-year-old Ecclestone is fighting for his future and freedom in a Munich corruption trial and many names have been linked to his role at the top of F1. Scudamore is the latest.


Scudamore's job is also in doubt due to a series of alleged sexist personal emails and if he does lost that job CVC has admitted it is interested in hiring him for F1.

A source told the Daily Mail newspaper in London: "TV rights deals are F1's life-blood. That is where Bernie has been brilliant. That is what Richard Scudamore is brilliant at and if we can't have Bernie we need someone like Scudamore.
