Disgraced former Renault F1 managing director Flavio Briatore is seeking €1 million in damages from the FIA and the annulment of his lifetime ban from the sport, arguing that he was denied a fair trial by the World Motor Sport Council over the 'Singapore-gate' race-fixing scandal

$1 mil. Why so little?
What will happen if he wins his appeal?
Will Renault have to re-instate him and symonds?
Will other teams kick up a stink if he does return as he brought the sport into such disrepute?
There are so many huge questions in here.
He was axed to stop the breakaway and everyone had to sign concorde. We already know with Toyota that Concorde means nothing so will he stir it all up again do you think?
What will happen if he returns?

britfan, i too was wondering why so litle. after all, he probably made several million a year. but as to his future, it all depends---. if he wins a case solely on procedures, then he wont be back, but if info comes out and he is shown not to be the instigator of wrongdoing, i reckon that he would have a good chance of a comeback! but i DO hope that ALL is revealed, as we really need to know the truth.

@richard
I do not think we will ever know the truth about what happened. I still think he knew and allowed it to happen. Is this what Renault is waiting for before is releases information about it's teams intentions for 2010?

I swear somebody in the background is prodding Briatore going "you're not going to take that sitting down are you, common man protect your pride"

Little does Briatore know...

The whole court case was all about Max taking personal revenge on Flav. We all know it. But i'm not sure I should say that or i'll have yet another post removed by Crash. Three in two days, I must have upset someone.

Well if Briatore didnt order Piquet to crash, none of this crap would have happens.

Briatore is a cheat and Formula 1 dont need people like him in their sport, it's only him that drag his name in the mud, nobody else.

Stay away Flav 'THE CHEAT' Briatore, a waste of space!

I hope Flav buries the perv once and for all... it was all about personal revenge and I dont understand why he has only asked for £1m.. he should destroy the man who is solely responsible for dragging F1 through the gutter.. Prison would be the right place for Mosley, but we all know he is no stranger to being chained up.

Would be nice if MM would get a little justice dealt to him personally. Everyone knows he abused his position to nail RD and Flava. Sure he has problems in his own life and Flava and RD aren't the least oppertunistic of people themselves but still, for the sake of a good balance in the world, MM deserves to get a slap on the whrist for what he did, personally, not as the chairman of the FIA, but he himself.

It's clear for everyone that what he did has to have broken some laws, just hope the judges will agree.
