Prosecutors and lawyers for Bernie Ecclestone are in talks about a possible deal to end the Formula One boss's bribery trial in Germany.
The 83-year-old Ecclestone went on trial in Munich in April, charged with bribery and incitement to breach of trust. The charges involve a $44 million payment to banker Gerhard Gribkowsky, who is serving an 8 1/2-year sentence for taking the money.
Ecclestone denies wrongdoing and says Gribkowsky blackmailed him.
His defense team called on Tuesday for proceedings to be closed, citing a lack of evidence that Ecclestone was criminally responsible and asserting that the proceedings were a strain for their client.

 state prosecutors argued that the 42-year-old Zahradnik hadn't been in custody and, as a police officer, he should have known his rights and the ramifications of his statements.
The appeals court found that Zahradnik's statement "was not the product of police interrogation, but rather resulted from negotiations for a peaceful resolution" of the standoff.

Authorities have not said what the two teens were arguing about.
The Hillsborough teen, whose name was not released due to his age, was being held Tuesday at a youth detention center.
