'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Briatore Court Case Outcome delayed

Flavio Briatore`s appeal to the Tribunal de Grande Instance in Paris against his lifetime ban issued by the FIA has been heard in the Tribunal's 5th civil chamber today.

He asked the court to overturn his life ban from Formula One on Tuesday, saying he had been denied his right to a free and fair defence.

He also asked for one million euros in compensation from the FIA for moral prejudice.

'My client only aims to be able to do what he wants and to recover his freedom... He is calm and determined,' Briatore's lawyer Philippe Ouakrat told reporters before the hearing.

According to his lawyer, Briatore believes the FIA was not entitled to hand out indefinite sanctions and that his ban was not imposed by an impartial judge because of his strained relationship with then FIA president Max Mosley.

The Italian also says the whole procedure was flawed as it was partly based on an anonymous witness, who was not named.

The court said it expected to reach a verdict on Jan. 5.
