They lifted his lifetime ban?? :?

In other words, Flabio has enough **** on the powers that be to force his way back into the fold. I'm actually glad Eff Wun tends to be so boring, it gives me a good excuse to largely ignore this whole wretched 'sport.'

I do hope this does not draw any more attention to Alonsos unpunished collusion in the cheating scandal known as "Crashgate".

It was completely obvious Alonso knew all about what was planned, otherwise he would have vocally questioned the strange strategy.

Allowing Flabbio back in just highlights the corruption and cheating in F1 and the unsavoury charachters it attracts.

This just makes a joke of the whole affair, they already knew this pair was guilty, they said they would bring those responsible to justice... Instead as per what Bernie has been saying we'll all sit down, smoke a few cigars, have a talk and a laugh at all the punters, and then its back to making money for the old boys club.
This mob makes me puke....

It is interesting to read the FIA spin story in their official announcement and compare it to this.

Rather than issue a transparent statement, the FIA issue one where they are at no fault and want to appear magnanamous in reaching an agreement with the parties involved.

Looks like the same old FIA mentality is in place.

I think its a shrewd move by Todt.

He can see the current regs are a disaster so he needs a couple of clowns to entertain us with the "soap opera" that is F1. :rolleyes:

Andrew I see a former friend has found another target in my absentia. :-o
