Crashgate Reaction - Max Mosley

FIA president Max Mosley has given his reaction to the media scrum that awaited him following the ruling in Paris.

Renault F1 were given a two year suspended sentence for the incident, while Flavio Briatore was banned from the sport indefinitely in all capacities.

Speaking to the media, including the BBC outside of the hearing, Mosley believed that the ruling while it was the harshest they could have given, it was also the fairest.

On Mr Briatore he was saddened that a man he once deemed as aligned with 'the loonies', had fallen from grace in such a manner.

"I think the blame has been placed where the blame should be placed and I think that's the right decision, said Mosley.

"It's sad because he's been in motor sport for 20 years, at the top level and it's sad to see a career end here but what else could we do."

The Football League will now meet next month to decide whether Flavio Briatore should have to give up his stake in Queens Park Rangers in line with the Fit and Proper Persons Test.

Here we go! Mosley gets his poisonous revenge and we face yet more upheaval, just as it seemed that Jim was beginning to put together a potentially very strong side. Everyone knows that I am pro-Briatore despite some of the thinghs he has done as he is far and away better than the jokers we have had in charge since David Bulstrode died. Let's hope that we come out of all this unscathed. Some of the more fanciful ideas that the Mittals will buy Flav out are nothing but pure speculation, or fantasy, like kids believing in Santa (sorry to break that bit of news). There is nothing to suggest that they will. Without trying, too hard, not to make a pun, there is something of watching a car crash that you can't prevent about all of this. For now, it makes my blood run cold.

Cracking post QPR4Me - well done sir. It takes a lot to defend Briatore with our volitile support. I must admit I'm still undecided, but as long as our product continues to bear fruit and we're on a financial even-keel I will back the man. Quite how he can be tolerated as a cheat is a very different matter though.

Mosely never forgave him for the threat to form a breakaway championship, and has been looking for a way to get hi, which he did courtesy of the Piquets and "confession" by Symonds. Its sad that the knock on effect will spill all over us as well. Your post is spot on QPR4me. I will count myself in the anti Briatore camp as a person, but he has done nothing to harm us so far.

Boxer and Lenny367. Thanks for your responses. They show that we are all different sides of a similar coin. At least, we can discuss this sensibly without falling into the name calling that "Auntie" presents us with everytime a good topic arises. Maybe I should spend more time over here!!

You would be a most welcome addition here thats for sure, and should spend more time over here. It would be good to read your views out there in the main forum and have a good debate which after all is why we come here.
