It was a Formula One-filled weekend at the posh ski resort in the Swiss Alps, because former F1 chief Bernie Ecclestone, 91, hung out with British Team Principal of the Red Bull Formula One Team Christian Horner, 48. The two were joined by their wives, Fabiana Flosi, 44, and former Spice Girl singer Geri Halliwell, 49.

As they were out for a walk in Gstaad, the group stopped to take a look at the head-turning car parked outside the Chopard jewelry store: a De Tomaso supercar, The Daily Mail reports.

Tourists of the expensive ski resort got a chance to look at the De Tomaso P72 Prototype, which is called Isabelle, after Alejandro De Tomaso’s wife.

The model will come with a 5.0-liter Ford Coyote V8 Ford engine and word is that it will deliver more than 700 horsepower and 600 lb-ft (813 Nm) of torque. The vehicle hasn't entered not in series production yet, but the price is reportedly estimated at around $1 million, give or take.

Business magnate Bernie got a closer look at the vehicle and was seen inspecting the interior, while someone was giving him details on the supercar, as it had its butterfly doors open.

Their outing comes just after the Red Bull Team Principal called the decision to sack F1 race director Michael Masi “harsh.” He added: “There was so much pressure put on the removal of Michael. That’s not right,” he accused. But starting this season, Formula 1 is getting state-of-the-art race control.

Christian and Geri weren’t the only famous people the Ecclestones hung out with in Gstaad. A few days ago, Fabiana shared a picture of Sir Elton John, whom she “bumped into” at lunch.
