Mosley: If Briatore thinks he's won, he'd better think again

“Nobody in my position, once that statement came from Piquet Jnr, could have done anything other than order an inquiry,” insisted Mosley, who despite Briatore's protestations of innocence has maintained all along that the Queens Park Rangers (QPR) co-owner 'knew damn well he was guilty' [see separate story – click here].

“There is no question about it. First of all, Symonds would never have done that without Briatore's authority — never, ever. Second, we have very good evidence that there were four people present at the meeting, and Symonds admitted his guilt in writing and then subsequently denied it.

“It would be crazy if this were the final outcome. The idea that in the end, when all the dust has settled, Briatore will get off is fiction – it won't happen.”

He said FIA may change rules to make the charge stick. Isn't it FOTA's job to ask for rule changes? Todt should speak up and denounce Max as a credible FIA spokes person. If Todt doesn't handle the matter himself he will look weak or worse yet. A Mosley puppet.
