    Eh, at least it wasn’t a full segment dedicated to Flav.

    It was funnier to see Horner and Hammond spend a lap of Monaco yelling at one another.

    In regards to this forum going down hill in prior articles, stories like this might be the reason why. Who cares? Schumacher did/does evil things, Senna did, Hamilton takes out someone ever second race, people make mistakes. Build a bridge and get over it. Things could be worse, you could be living in Bahrain.

    First of all, in no way are Coughlan and Briatore comparable. Coughlan took part in the sort of industrial espionage that is wrong, but slightly inevitable, well reported and well regulated. He was caught, rightly punished, served his time, an even Ferrari arn’t complaining that he’s back, especially if he gets a prestige marque like Williams back to their proper place.

    Briatore fixed a race, dangerous not only because it devalues the results of every race, we can no longer be sure what we are seing is real, but fixed it in a highl;y dangerous way. Pique himself probably wasn’t in great danger, nor were the crowd or even the marshall’s, F1 is very safe today as we know, however, thats entirley by the by, a crash is a chaotic situation, things go wrong. People could have been killed, Briatore was intergral to the whole plot, this was the man in charge. For that reason forgivness, reconciliation and a return to the padock are unacceptable, he mustn’t be allowed near F1 ever again, that the BBC had him on is a disgrace.

    Didn’t Flabio manage to get his punishment overturned anyway? Surely that is why he was allowed at the Monaco GP! I vaguely remember something like that.
