Bernie Ecclestone is not above making a wry joke with his annual Christmas cards and this year is no exception.
His cartoon card features the team bosses waving goodbye to Max Mosley. Meanwhile Flavio Briatore – depicted aboard a pirate rowboat – takes aim at his yacht with a harpoon.
Mosley and Briatore have been trading indignant statements over the lifetime ban Briatore was handed following the Singapore Grand Prix race-fixing scandal. Briatore has appealed against the ruling in the French courts and a verdict is due on January 5th.
Last year Ecclestone’s card featured Max Mosley whipping the team bosses in a nod towards the ‘Spankgate’ row.
