Bernie Ecclestone's wife Fabiana, 44, will be given chief F1 job if Mohammed Ben Sulayem replaces Todt as FIA president

December 14, 2021

BERNIE ECCLESTONE'S wife Fabiana, 44, could be set for a big role within the FIA.

Current FIA president Jean Todt, 75, is set to be replaced for the 2022 Formula 1 season.


Either Mohammed Ben Sulayem or Graham Stoker will succeed Frenchman Todt as they bid to be elected on December 17.

And if the former is successful, Fabiana Ecclestone is set for big things.

Should Ben Sulayem be elected, Fabiana will be appointed Vice-President for Sport in South America.

The Brazilian is married to former F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone.

She met the 91-year-old at the World Motor Sport Council in 2009.

And the couple wed three years later.

They named their baby boy Ace.

With Todt set to depart after 12 years, the FIA could face yet more upheaval this winter, as Michael Masi comes under intense scrutiny.

Both Ben Sulayem and Stoker would be under pressure to axe Masi, after an error-strewn season for the Aussie race director – culminating in his decision to bend the rules in Abu Dhabi, gifting Max Verstappen the title.
