Wonder if he'll do a Robert Maxwell....the more time goes by the more I think it was Briatore that set up Mosley (just an personal opinion for the benefit of Briatore's lawyers)

Anybody remember the strange story about the bomb that was found on his London doorstep ? It was explained away as an IRA attack that was aborted, the bomb dumped on an innocent doorstep. Some people in F1 did wonder if it had any connection to the failure of the son of a "Sicilian Businessman" under Briatore's care. Rumours were going around that the bomb was, strangely not of a type, design or material ever used by the IRA. Before or after.

I am sure it was all a terrible misunderstanding.

nearly every business man tries to offset items to get tax relief. there are numerous who claim to rent out boats, property etc., but dont! this case is nothing unusual, so i wouldnt get too worked up about it. doesnt eddie irvine also "charter out" his yacht?? and then there are the business men who buy taxi licences so their rollers can use buslanes.

the headline is just overplaying a normal tax dodge, but then again, its briatore, so it must be enormous fraud!! wrong maybe, but not unusual!
