One of Bernie Ecclestone's helicopter pilots was behind a plot to kidnap his mother-in-law in Brazil for a £28 million ransom, according to police.
Aparecida Schunck, the mother of the Formula One boss's wife Fabiana Flosi, 38, was abducted from her home in Sao Paulo more than a week ago.
Police said they rescued the 67-year-old after finding her tied up but unharmed in a house on the outskirts of Sao Paulo on Sunday.

Pilot Jorge Eurico da Silva Faria, who works for Ecclestone in Brazil, is one of three men arrested in connection with the kidnapping, said police.
It is believed investigators monitored phone calls between the family of Ms Schunck and the captors, tracing them to the location where she was being held.

She was was not harmed in the operation conducted by Sao Paulo's anti-kidnapping division.
Elisabete Sato of Sao Paulo police told the BBC that the ransom, thought to have been the largest in Brazilian history, had not been paid.

A spokesman for Sao Paulo police said da Silva Faria was arrested "red handed" with two other men, Vitor Oliveira Amorim and David Vicente Azevedo.
"The investigation continues and the police did not rule out the involvement of other suspects," he added. ... ppers.html
