LONDON -- Despite a ruling damaging to his already tarnished image, Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone won a multimillion-dollar case at Londons High Court Thursday relating to the sale of F1 in 2005. The case was dismissed but the judge said it had nevertheless been a corrupt deal and questioned Ecclestones honesty. "Even ... making allowances for the lapse of time and Mr Ecclestones age, I am afraid that I find it impossible to regard him as a reliable or truthful witness," judge Guy Newey said. A former F1 shareholder, German media company Constantin Medien, had sued Ecclestone and other defendants for up to $144 million, claiming F1 was undervalued at the time of the sale to investment group CVC Capital Partners. The 83-year-old Ecclestone was accused of entering into a "corrupt agreement" with German banker Gerhard Gribkowsky to facilitate the sale of Formula One Group to a buyer chosen by him. The High Court said the deal was corrupt, but ruled that Constantin Medien did not lose out as a result. "No loss to Constantin has been shown to have been caused by the corrupt arrangement with Dr Gribkowsky," the judge said in his conclusions. "That fact is fatal to the claim." During the trial, which ran from October to December last year, Constantin Mediens lawyers said that payments totalling about 27 million pounds ($45 million) were made to Gribkowsky at the instigation of Ecclestone. Gribkowsky, who was in charge of selling German bank BayernLBs 47-per cent stake in F1 to CVC, has already been found guilty of corruption, tax evasion and breach of trust and is serving an 8 1/2-year prison sentence. Ecclestone acknowledged during Gribkowskys trial that he made the payment to avoid being reported by the banker to authorities over his tax affairs. "The payments were a bribe. They were made because Mr Ecclestone had entered into a corrupt agreement with Dr Gribkowsky in May 2005 under which Dr Gribkowsky was to be rewarded for facilitating the sale of BLBs shares in the Formula One group to a buyer acceptable to Mr Ecclestone," the judge said. Constantin said it would appeal the decision. "The judge ruled against Constantin essentially on technical grounds -- including extremely complicated questions of German law which is the governing law in the case -- and Constantin will be appealing those findings," said lawyer Keith Oliver, head of commercial fraud litigation at Peters and Peters Solicitors. Ecclestone is also facing trial in Germany. He is charged with bribery and incitement to breach of trust connected with the payment to Gribkowsky. The trial will begin on April 24 and is set to run until Sept. 16. Bribery convictions can result in prison sentences ranging from three months to 10 years in Germany. Ecclestone said earlier this month he is expecting the case to be thrown out before the trial starts. Ecclestone has stepped down as a member of F1s holding company board of directors pending the outcome of the trial but continues running the sport. Renato Augusto Jersey . That Ginette Reno can sing.

It was my fifth straight year attending and, as always, there are many interesting matters discussed as it pertains to the use of statistics in sports.Andy Murray will be required to conjure up more of his remarkable powers of recovery if he is to make it through to the knock-out stages of the ATP World Tour Finals on Friday. Having beaten Marin Cilic and Kei Nishikori, the world No 1 only needs to win a set against Stan Wawrinka to guarantee his passage through to the semi-finals at the O2 Arena for the first time since 2012.

World No 3 Wawrinka showed much better form in beating Cilic on Wednesday than he had in his limp loss to Nishikori and the Swiss knows that a straight-sets win over Murray would maintain his record of always reaching the last four. Sky Live: Murray v Wawrinka Andy Murray takes on Stan Wawrinka at ATP World Tour Finals Nothing comes easy against the very best players in the world, let alone against the US Open champion who has suddenly clicked in London - something Sky Sports analyst Mark Petchey acknowledges.Wawrinka is always the wildcard in the pack, hes the guy that when hes confident, hes got the power to get through tough surfaces and he does a lot of things well, said Petchey. He moves better than people give him credit for and as I say it was an intelligent performance with the use of the slice. Its not just about the power and the showbiz tennis. Wawrinka beat Murray at the Tour Finals in London last year Friday will be the 17th meeting between the pair, with Murray leading the head-to-head record 9-7, and when they do clash, sparks usually fly.Wawrinka, who sealed his first major title at the 2014 Australian Open before winning an ATP Tour1000 event, last faced the Scot in the French Open semi-finals.That was one of Murrays most impressive performances of the season and ended a run of three straight losses to Wawrinka, including at the O2 last year with qualification at stake. Murray also suffered a 6-1 6-2 defeat to Wawrinka at the Monte Carlo Masters in 2013 Wawrinka, who faces a battle to hold on to the world No 3 ranking, said: All I know is, if I want to have a chance to qualify, I need to win.dddddddddddd. Thats all Im trying to do.Im going to try to play my best tennis, to beat the world No 1. Its going to be a tough match. We played each other many times.The hardcourt surface at the O2 Arena will suit Wawrinkas heavy hitting style of game from both flanks, but hell have a job breaking down a resilient Murray. The 29-year-old is a totally different prospect to the one he faced in the US Open quarter-finals and Monte Carlo Masters in 2013. Mark Petchey and Greg Rusedski discuss Murray’s epic win over Nishikori and his chances against Wawrinka Arguably the most famous meeting between the two came under the Wimbledon lights in 2009 in a contest lasting three minutes short of four hours, which the Scot won in dramatic fashion. Could it more of the same on Friday?Obviously its going to be a tough match, said Petchey. Theyve had a lot of tough matches in the past and this will be another one.Andy is the form player right now and Im sure inside hes feeling pretty invincible every match he steps out on court.
