It may be a while before Bernie Ecclestone is successful in his plans to float Formula One on the Singapore Stock Exchange, but that doesn't mean that he and his employers at CVC Capital Partners can't begin selling off chunks of their business.

It takes two to tango, and apparently Bernie Ecclestone is in no rush to lace up his dancing shoes. The F1 chief reportedly insists that, despite rumors of Rupert Murdoch and Carlos Slim joining forces to buy it out, the international motor racing series is not, in fact, for sale. CVC Capital, the holding company that owns the rights and to whom Ecclestone reports, receives substantial, multi-million-dollar annual dividends from F1, and so may be in no rush to divest.
