Reports have surfaced that John Malone’s Liberty Media is seeking to take control of Formula One motor racing, with Sky News reporting that it is in detailed talks with F1’s controlling shareholder, CVC Capital Partners, about a transaction.
Similar reports late June 2015 suggested that another of Malone’s companies, Liberty Global, was working with Sky on a bid. A year earlier, Liberty Global and cable networks programmer Discovery Communications were rumoured to be seeking to take a 49 percent stake. Malone, controls a 27 percent voting stake in Liberty Global and a 29 percent voting stake in Discovery.
The latest report suggests that such a deal could involve Chase Carey, a former DirecTV and News Corporation executive, being appointed as chairman of the sport’s parent company prior to or alongside a deal. CVC is said to be considering naming him – with the support of Liberty Media Corp – as F1’s chairman to replace Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, the chairman of Nestle.
