Former F1 Boss Bernie Ecclestone to Be a Father Again at 89

04/04/2020

Former F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone is still busy in retirement. At 89, he is set to be a father for the fourth time, with his his third wife.

“It will be a boy,” his wife, Fabiana Flosi, 44, told the Swiss newspaper Blick. She is six months pregnant.

It will be Ecclestone’s first son. The F1 chairman emeritus has three daughters: Deborah, 65, Tamara, 35, and Petra, 31.

Speaking from his coffee farm north of São Paulo, Brazil, Ecclestone said: “Finally a boy! Yes, it will happen in the summer. Hopefully he’ll soon learn to play backgammon.”

Ecclestone was quick to joke about the circumstances.

“After my time in Formula 1, we’ve had enough time to practice,” Ecclestone said, laughing. “Without humor and fun you wouldn’t last long these days. I just want it to be good for Fabiana, even in this apparently longer isolation.

“Fortunately, we never run out of work on the farm.”

Said Flosi of her son: “Hopefully he will never express the intention to do something with Formula 1.”
