Ex-F1 boss Ecclestone, 92, has given unique orders to wife for when he dies

Former F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone has told his wife to put his body put in a cardboard box and "get some advertising money" when he dies.

Ecclestone, 92, has given the bizarre instructions to his wife Fabiana, 46, a lawyer he met at the Brazilian Grand Prix 14 years ago and now lives in the luxury Swiss town of Gstaad.

The British tycoon was removed from his position as F1 kingpin in 2017 after almost 40 years of running and transforming the sport.

But he is still ever-present on race weekends and has continued his jet-setting lifestyle into his 90s while residing in his idyllic Alpine resort.

And Ecclestone – who has been married three times – welcomed his fourth child and first son Ace – full name Alexander Charles – in July 2020.

Two daughters from Ecclestone's previous marriages have become reality TV stars, while his eldest child Deborah is 67.

His wife Fabiana was the vice-president of marketing for the Brazilian Grand Prix when the pair met in Sao Paulo, but now works as the FIA vice-president for South America.

And Ecclestone insists that while he remains in contact with FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem, he does not interfere with his wife's work.

Billionaire Ecclestone, who tied the knot with Fabiana three years after their first meeting at Interlagos in 2009, has made plans for his funeral and has very specific demands for his wife when he passes away.

“When I’m gone, I’m gone,” he said in a wide-ranging interview with the Telegraph. “I told Fabiana a long time ago, ‘When I disappear, get a nice cardboard box, put me in the box, and put me in the oven.

"But before you do it, write DHL on the box and get some advertising money. That’s the way to do it.”
