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.
