Briatore will demand huge payout from F1
Thursday 12 November 2009
Former Renault boss Flavio Briatore will demand €1 million damages from Formula One's world governing body when he appeals against his indefinite ban from the sport later this month.
According to today's Guardian newspaper, Briatore will also say that former FIA president Max Mosley was "blinded by an excessive desire for personal revenge" when the governing body handed down the ban in September.
The FIA ruled that Briatore was behind a scam in which Renault driver Nelson Piquet Jr. was ordered to deliberately crash his car at the 2008 Singapore Grand Prix to help teammate Fernando Alonso win the race.
The Guardian said it had seen documents which outlined Briatore's appeal.
