Maybe Todt will take this as an olive branch and avoid further embarrassment to the FIA and stop the appeal process. Staying away is what FIA wants so maybe this will help.

Unfortunately this is personal between Mosley & Briatore so I suspect this will rumble on for some time yet...which isn't good for the sport.

Still to see how effective Todt is, he's been pretty quite considering.

You can take the man out of the Dungeon, you cannot take the Dungeon out of the man....

Fantastic stuff from Flabbio, I am amazed nobody else has drawn the obvious conclusion that Max's personal life certainly has many parallels with his despotic professional life.

Domination obsessions features very strongly in both, it is just that he cannot take the punishment he loves dishing out...

colin. long story. max told briatore that there was no need to turn up, and then , without hearing anything, they put a pre agreed ban on him, something that they were not entitled to do, under their constitution. in other words, a kangaroo court! the appeal to french court, agreed that fia acted illegally!

If Flav was scared he would have just stayed away. Monkey court is only appealing to save face. If Flav's verdict from French court holds then FIA is in trouble. It totally undermines their power. It will lead more teams to appeal outside of monkey court and basically render FIA useless. Todt, if smart will put this to rest and move on. It would also shut up Max and send him into the sunset where he can write his book.
