Rupert Murdoch owned Newcorp has revealed that it is looking at taking over the commercial rights of Formula1 from CVC Capital Investments, by tying up with Italian finance firm EXOR which has very close links with Fiat.  Bernie Ecclestone is against this move because he fears that Murdoch will make F1 a pay per view thing for TV and Bernie believes that this will kill the sport.  Free to air for him is a necessity to sustain interest in the sport.
