Flavio Briatore is leaving his post at Renault F1, the Formula One team confirmed today.

Briatore's position at Renault has been under question since the Crashgate scandal. He departs along with Pat Symonds, the team's executive director of engineering. Renault have released the following statement.

The ING Renault F1 Team has announced that it will not dispute the recent allegations made by the FIA concerning the 2008 Singapore Grand Prix. It also wishes to state that its managing director, Flavio Briatore and its executive director of engineering, Pat Symonds, have left the team.

Before attending the hearing before the FIA World Motor Sport Council in Paris on 21 September 2009, the team will not make any further comment.


This leaves Flavio Briatore precariously placed as the statement intimates his implication in the scandal.

Vital QPR brought you the news this morning that his position was under threat, and it is now assumed that Alain Prost will take the vacant post at Renault.

Keep it on Vital QPR for all the breaking reaction to this remarkable ongoing story.

This is very worrying - his guilt isn't legally stipulated yet, but it'd be foolish to assume he's innocent after that rather curt statement. Sad days.

We shall have to wait and see. It wasn't exactly a secret that Flav was going to quit F! anyway, so this could be the tipping point that just made him go sooner rather than later. Renault are the ones facing charges and they will still have to answer to them, so they are far from being out of the woods after Flav's resignation.

I can only assume his departure will lessen the punishment a tad, because a) they are admitting guilt and b) they've taken action against the alledged instigator(s).

But Renault are not going to contest the charges. Surely that means they are accepting the guilt? Where does that leave Flav?

They could be accepting guilt on the basis of ignorance, yes we know this man did the team wrong, but we had no reason to know what he was doing. So yes the team is guilty but we're pleading ignorance... maybe?

Seems that way to me. The team's distancing itself from him, so Flavio's basically by himself in this, with all blame seemingly ready to be pinned on him alone.
