The governing body for Formula One, the FIA, have released the following statement with regards to Flavio Briatore.

The Queens Park Rangers co-owner was today given a ban from all areas of motorsport, and the following is a statement by the FIA:

As regards Mr. Briatore, the World Motor Sport Council declares that, for an unlimited period, the FIA does not intend to sanction any International Event, Championship, Cup, Trophy, Challenge or Series involving Mr. Briatore in any capacity whatsoever, or grant any license to any Team or other entity engaging Mr. Briatore in any capacity whatsoever. It also hereby instructs all officials present at FIA-sanctioned events not to permit Mr. Briatore access to any areas under the FIA`s jurisdiction. Furthermore, it does not intend to renew any Superlicence granted to any driver who is associated (through a management contract or otherwise) with Mr. Briatore, or any entity or individual associated with Mr. Briatore. In determining that such instructions should be applicable for an unlimited period, the World Motor Sport Council has had regard not only to the severity of the breach in which Mr. Briatore was complicit but also to his actions in continuing to deny his participation in the breach despite all the evidence.

The reasons for the decision will be made in due course, but one can be left in no doubt that Mr Briatore's involvement in Formula One is complete.

As for Queens Park Rangers, it remains to be seen whether his position is under threat under the 'Fit and Proper Owners Test' with the article preventing "Anyone subject to a ban from a sports governing body relating to the administration of that sport," from becoming or remaining an owner in a football club above the threshold of 30%.
