Ecclestone to prostrate himself to wife in hopes of saving himself £1B  F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone has told the News of the World he hopes to WIN back his wife on Valentine’s Day —even though she’s filed for divorce.

The 78-year-old tycoon admits he now has a dilemma over what gift to woo Slavica with— because she already has everything!

In an amazingly candid interview, down-in-the-dumps Bernie spoke for the first time about the split with his wife of 24 years.

He said: “Slavica is the love of my life. But the lawyers say I mustn’t call her and mustn’t try to get in touch with her.”

And he revealed that despite his £2.4 billion fortune and life of sheer luxury, his marital problems aren’t really that different to anyone else’s.

For fed-up Slavica, 50, walked out on him after a blazing row about their neighbor’s BUILDERS. And Bernie thinks she has become lonely and bored since their two daughters have flown the nest.

Meanwhile Slavica blames Bernie for spending too much time at work—and not enough at home, he says.

But the optimist, who put hundreds of millions of pounds in offshore accounts in his wife’s name, is still hoping she will call off the divorce—even though she’s hired Liz Vernon.

The top-notch lawyer secured a ground-breaking deal for footballer Ray Parlour’s wife, which forced him to pay a huge lump sum plus a third of future earnings.

£1 billion
If Slavica presses ahead, she could be awarded £1 BILLION due to the length of their marriage.

This would make it the costliest split in history.

But Bernie insists he wants 6ft 2ins Slavica—whose dad was a Croatian dockworker— back for love and NOT money.

Speaking of their split he said: “It’s terribly disappointing when these things happen, I tell you. Maybe we all take things for granted, I don’t know.

“I have told her a hundred times I want to give it another go. We will see.”  More at News of the World
