Byline: Brian Twomey

THE so-called Crashgate scandal has rocked the world of Formula One to its core. Indeed, the revelations keep on coming. While the ruling by the FIA has pretty much exonerated Nelson Piquet Jr and the Renault F1 team, Flavio Briatore faces a lifetime ban from any FIA activity as well as legal action from Piquet who it is alleged wants to be released from his contract. Briatore was manager of both Piquet and the Renault F1 team while engineer Pay Symonds, who was handed a five-year ban, was executive director of engineering.

Renault F1 was handed a two-year suspension after the FIA investigation which looked into whether Piquet had been ordered to crash out of the 2008 Singapore GP in order to provide a tactical advantage to his team mate Fernando Alonso by forcing the safety car to be deployed.
