FIA condemns leaked Briatore documents

The FIA has condemned the leaking of confidential legal documents ahead of disgraced former Renault F1 managing director Flavio Briatore's Paris appeal against his lifetime ban for the 'Singapore-gate' race-fixing scandal
The FIA has issued a short statement expressing its disappointment at the leaking of confidential legal documents relating to the appeal later this month of former Renault F1 managing director Flavio Briatore against the lifetime ban he received for his role in the 'Singapore-gate' race-fixing scandal.

The leak was reported by a British newspaper, with Briatore accusing the governing body and former FIA President Max Mosley in particular of having breached his rights to a fair trial by using 'excessive and abusive power' in an enactment of 'personal revenge' against the Italian [see separate story – click here].

The official FIA response read as follows:

'The FIA condemns the selective leaking of extracts from Mr. Briatore's pleadings to the Tribunal de Grande Instance in Paris.

'The FIA rejects the allegations made in these leaks and confirms that the decision to impose a sanction against Mr. Briatore was made by an overwhelming majority of the attending World Motor Sport Council members.

'In respect for the authority of the French Court, it would be entirely inappropriate for the FIA to comment further on this matter in advance of the hearing.'
