Aug.27 (GMM/ Bernie Ecclestone has not been at Spa-Francorchamps this weekend because he is in Rome preparing for the wedding of his daughter Petra.

80-year-old Briton Ecclestone is reportedly footing the more than $2 million bill, with Eric Clapton touted to play the first song before the Black Eyed Peas take over.
