German prosecutors yesterday indicted motor-racing magnate Bernie Ecclestone on a bribery charge, but the 82-year-old has refused to resign as Formula One boss, despite facing a trial.

The 82-year-old could face a prison sentence after being charged by Munich prosecutors in relation to a USD 44 million payment he made to German banker Gerhard Gribkowsky which was linked to the sale of the F1 rights in 2006.
