Despite resigning from his role as managing director of the Renault F1 team, Flavio Briatore still manages a number of high profile drivers. The findings of the World Motor Sport Council, which has banned him indefinitely from the sport, mean that he will no longer be able to continue driver management in any FIA sanctioned series and that any driver associated with him will not be eligible for a superlicence.

It is Max getting his own back on Flav for being the ringleader of FOTA, the body which forced him to retire this year.

Having said that, he ordered his team to cheat and potentially put lives of others at risk. It might be harsh, but if you can't do the time don't do the crime.

Renault got off very lightly, McLaren were fined 100 M USD for a far less serious offence, I would be very, very annoyed if I were in charge of McLaren.

I agree archie. In the case of McLaren, it was more of punish the team as opposed to this time round punish the responsible individuals in the team. It really does look like a deal was done between Max and Renault - lay all the blame on Flavio, ensure he never works in F1 again (which is effectively what he did to Mosley) and Renault get off scot free....

Mad Max really is a scumbag, the sooner he has gone the better.

It's going to be Jean Todt or Ari Vatinen (spelling?).

Personally I would like the latter. He has been very vocal about Mad max and what needs to be done differently at the FIA. So far Todt has said nothing, and Moseley is backing him too.
