The court did not state that Briatore/Symonds were innocent, rather they believed the punishment to be illegal.

Ban lifted or not, with those allegations still hanging over their heads, would you want this pair associated with your team?

Same with Piquet. Damaged goods.

The fact still remains a controlling body of Motorsport has received a severe slap in the face.

I will not call it a Kangaroo court because it insults our Kangaroo however to retain respect their damage control experts need to move quick and efficient.

Now is the time to question and enforce necessary steps as to the dead wood within the F1 environment who are negligent in their actions starting at the top and working to the bottom without exception.

The problem is who has the fortitude to place such a landslide in motion.

I see the Briatorie matter a perfect opportunity for people to question the FIA in its present format and in addition ponder its enforcable stance.

Mosley's judgement was clouded in his thirst for revenge. Could have been handled much better and Renault getting of scott free was a joke.

I still wonder who 'he thinks' set him up, judging by how he handled this I have my suspicions.

The photo is funny, looks more like a porn director :p

I thought the photo looked more like "Who stole the last cream cake."

I think that if the FIA look at initiating criminal proceedings against him he could be in big trouble.

For sure and certain Mosley's judgement was clouded however what were the other characters doing when sitting behind the bench.No one man should have the power to embelish the consideration or thoughts of others in distinguishing right from wrong.

People within the FIA panel know the proper steps of the judicial system and should have acted within its confines.

Now with Briatorie and his lawyer sighting a loophole the judicial system in place needs to be questioned, not only Mosley

@Commodore S

Your quite right in what you say, I just think Mosley was the driving force in the severity of the punishment, same applies to McLaren. You could say renault got of lightly with the spying charges against them but that was before mosley-gate wasn't it ?
