Anita Bräck, former wife of McLaren F1 test driver, Kenny Bräck, has succeeded in her appeal against the terms of the financial settlement to the parties’ pre-nuptial agreement. The retired racing driver sought to rely on the terms of the document prepared in 2000, following the parties’ separation in 2015. The racing driver and his bride-to-be to signed the pre-nuptial agreement when they were ‘lying in bed, relaxing’ on a romantic weekend to Niagara Falls, prior to their December 2000 marriage.
Mr Bräck’s wealth is estimated at over £11 million. Mrs Bräck is now seeking that half the family assets should be shared, after the pair divorced following 15 years of marriage and two children. The ex-wife of the former- Indy 500 racing driver could be entitled to a £5 million divorce settlement after an appeal court ruled that the pre-nuptial agreement was “unfair.”
Challenging this ruling, Mrs Brack claimed Mr Justice Francis ‘made crucial errors of law’ when he rejected an equal division of the family wealth. The wife was of the view that the judge had misunderstood the law relating to pre-nuptial agreements and as a result misdirected himself to the effect that, despite having found the pre-nuptial agreements to be unfair, he was precluded from making an award on a sharing basis, whether 50/50 or at all.
