Flavio Briatore on the Renault-Piquet scandal

September 11, 2009

Fascinating interview with Renault team principal Flavio Briatore, by Autosport’s Jonathan Noble. As you’d expect, given the ongoing investigations he doesn’t say much of substance, but this made me laugh out loud

Q. Why do you think Nelson Piquet crashed deliberately?

FB: Nelson has crashed 17 times.

How can you not laugh at that, really. Especially if you read it to yourself in a Flav-voice. He also seems to confirm something about Alonso and Ferrari, but it’s a bit unclear

But I know only in Brazil, that Fernando was ready for us because we were still negotiating between Ferrari, etc, etc. I had in mind to put Romain in the car, but I believed he was too young. This is no secret.

Give it a read.
