Manager to Nico Hülkenberg – and former manager to the Schumacher brothers – Willi Weber has narrowly avoided a stint in jail after being charged and tried for fraud and embezzlement in the German courts.
Weber – who was sentenced to probation and a considerable fine for a case involving the insolvency of a Michael Schumacher merchandising company – had his day in court for a case regarding the fraudulent bankruptcy of Pole Position Marketing, a company run by Weber.
The German was found guilty in the case, but the DPA news agency and Suddeutsche newspaper have reported that he has been sentenced to a further two years’ probation and must pay a €360,000 sum to a charity.
