Ex-Renault F1 managing director Flavio Briatore has given his clearest indication yet that one day in the future, he might return to the sport that threw him out like 'a criminal' over the 'Singapore-gate' race-fixing scandal

He has been important in the sport. You can't deny it, he did see the potential of Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso before anyone else did. He made them champions.

Just to set the record straight Flav did spot Alonso but not Schumacher.

Alonso was under briatore management company and was placed by briatore at minardi, so not spotted by stoddy

Schumacher was initially hired by Eddie Jordan and raced for the silverston team for 1 race (Spa I think) before being poached by Briatore, with Bernie's help, to race for Benetton

I don't agree with what Briatore did in "crashgate" but even manslauter doesn't hold a "life means life" sentance so maybe we should cut him some slack?

"...and his friend and influential F1 commercial rights-holder Bernie Ecclestone has admitted: “I think he could take up a role in the promotion of Formula 1.”

To do what? Fix more races ? They sound as if Singapore wasn't the only fix done in the past. Which -in my opinion- is very likely.
