SWEET DEAL: In London, Kevin Eason noted Ecclestone reportedly has "promised a small fortune in payments" worth $200M (all figures U.S.) through '20 over the eight years of the Concorde Agreement between the FIA and F1 that was approved on Friday. The agreement also reportedly includes "a cash sweetener worth more than" $4.85M "simply to sign the deal." In addition, there is an offer of a 1% stake "in the F1 business, if and when it is floated on the Singapore Stock Exchange." That "could be worth" $70M to the FIA (LONDON TIMES, 9/28).
