Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone has been mugged outside his central London business headquarters.

The 80-year-old suffered a head injury when he was attacked by four men at the Formula One Holdings building in Knightsbridge.

He was repeatedly punched and kicked by the men who were lying in wait for him as he arrived at the HQ with his Brazilian girlfriend Fabiana Flosi.

Jewellery valued at £200,000 was stolen in the robbery on Wednesday.

Police said Mr Ecclestone was taken to hospital where he was treated for a minor head injury before being allowed home soon after

The guy is a class 1 A-Hole. Here is what he said after Jenson Button was almost mugged at gun point in Salo Palo. Button escaped the attack after his police driver was able to evade the gang of men that attacked his car whilst waiting in traffic on the way to the circuit.:

Ecclestone had said that muggers are always waiting for victims, especially for those that appear not too bright and look like a “soft touch”.


Pretty hilarious that it's not too long after that statement that Bernie himself gets mugged. Couldn't happen to a better guy, *lol*

I laughed. Good things happen to good people :)
Never knew he made those comments about mugging to Button ... Great karma :rofl:

Also, mad props to 01RedDX for the glamor shot :rofl: I'm sure his daughter has some make-up for that. My friend keeps trying to tell me it's his girlfriend :rolleyes:
