Reports surfacing in Brazil today suggest that Flavio Briatore is to be relieved of his position at Formula One outfit Renault.

The following is a direct translation from Globo Esportes, the leading TV company in Brazil. They reproduce the comments of Lito Cavalcanti, the motorsports commentator for SporTV, below.

The days of Flavio Briatore and Renault boss are coming to an end. According to the commentator of motor racing for SporTV, Lito Cavalcanti, Briatore will be fired by the French squad before next Monday for ordering the crash of Nelson Piquet in the Grand Prix in Singapore last year, an act that benefited the Spaniard Fernando Alonso, another driver of the team.

No later than Monday, Flavio Briatore should be fired by Renault. Of course, he will receive a note thanking him for good and loyal service. This will avoid the humiliation of being banned from the circus of Formula 1. But the fact is that there is no more doubt that he'll be out of Formula 1 in 2010 - said Lito Cavalcanti.

According to the commentator, after the International Automobile Federation (FIA) has offered to award immunity to the whistleblower Nelsinho Piquet and Renault's technical director, Pat Symonds, Briatore was left alone in the middle of the crossfire.

The fact is that Briatore is now the only person who is still subject to punishment if Pat Symonds should accept the whistleblower award that is being offered. In fact, he hinted in his testimony that at times he had more to tell than he was being asked but just would not say anything at that moment - the commentator concluded.

The leading contender to replace Flavio Briatore is the Frenchman Alain Prost, world champion in Formula 1.


Prost's name has been mentioned in several quarters as Briatore's potential successor at Renault, but quite where this leaves Flavio's position at Queens Park Rangers remains to be seen.
