Bernie Ecclestone says he was always confident in the German legal system

Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone tells the BBC's Dan Roan that he wants to run the sport for as long as he can after paying £60m to end his three-month bribery trial in Germany.

In his first major interview since he avoided a possible 10-year prison sentence, the 83-year-old said he always believed he would walk away a free man.

"I'm not scared of anything to be honest with you", he said. "It never bothered me because I knew I was innocent."
