It seems that my take on the Renault F1 affair was accurate:
That is, that Briatore is a lying thug and Pat Symonds is a nice guy who went badly wrong. Briatore is still squealing like a stuck pig, threatening to sue everybody. Yeah.
All has been revealed by a mystery witness who was party to the conspiracy to deliberately crash an F1 car in Singapore last year.
What has come out, and what I did not know, is that Flavio Briatore was never a motor racing fan, he was a huckster, albeit and expensive huckster, for Benetton clothing and had no idea about the "sport" when he became head of Renault F1. It all goes to back up my contention, and Damon Hill's by the way, that Formula One motor racing is now a show and has little or nothing to do with sport or good form and that Bernie Ecclestone is too close to Briatore and vested interests in the Team's survival to be in any sense neutral about the ridiculously light penalty that Renault have incurred.
