Paul Ricard's proud owner casts her towering figure

Unbeknownst to many, the proud owner of the Circuit Paul Ricard is none other than Bernie Ecclestone's ex-wife Slavica Radic, who inherited the company which owns the track as a result of her divorce settlement with the former F1 supremo.

The 61-year-old former model and glamour girl takes a keen interest in her asset and popped in this weekend to tour the paddock and salute its notable residents.

Locals heroes Alain Prost and Jean Alesi appeared delighted to be shadowed by the ex-Mrs E's towering and elegant figure.
