Being on trial for bribery has to be a stressful event, so one could forgive F1 chief Bernie Ecclestone for stumbling over his words as the proceedings began. That said, his wife probably won't be pleased with his answer to a seemingly very simple question on Thursday. 

That's right, Ecclestone apparently forgot he was married. We're no relationship counsellors, but it's safe to say that's a faux pas.

Poor form, Bernie.
