Ecclestone is clearly a capable business man in light of the billions that he's squeezed out of F1 over the past couple of decades. Whether he's able to translate that acumen into turning Saab into a profitable brand given its history of red ink remains to be seen. Of course, whether Ecclestone and Genii will get the chance in the first place is a more pressing question, as GM would appear to be every bit as likely to sell Saab to Spyker Cars, or perhaps just continue shutting down the brand altogether. Thanks for the tips, everyone.
