For serial.

He has a huge rep as a international playboy. Supermodel after supermodel. He even had a child with Heidi Klum, though its been pretty suppressed.

Think he finally settled down a year or two ago and got married.

Agreed, supermodels dont need the money but the dude has serious money, they don't. I don't agree with some of the stuff he has done, but, his money and what's hanging on his arm beats my nickel so I can't bash him too much........

Piquet Jr. came up with the idea. Went to Pat Symonds and then presented the idea to Briatore - all because his contract was in jeopardy with Renault and wanted to seem like a team player...

While it doesn't surprise me in the least that Flavio agreed to it, I was SHOCKED that Pat Symonds was involved and agreed to it. If I was a betting girl, I'd bet that Witness X was Bob Bell, their Technical Director at the time (and still with the team).

There was some British tabloid that published the identity of 'Witness X' as the chief race engineer, Alan Permane.

PS. Welcome to the forums. What brought you here?

Interesting about Alan Permane - hadn't heard that - guess I would have lost that bet, lol!!!

What brought me to the Forums - I've been lurking for a long time, but I just ordered my first BMW - a 2011 328xit (bluewater/oyster - 6MT, ZVP, ZPP, ZSP, xenon, HK, heated wheel, roof rails). It just finished production and I can't wait for it to get here!

I currently have an '05 MINI Cooper S that is about to turn 100,000 miles - love it but have outgrown it space wise (4 dogs).

Thanks for the welcome!

I know Bob Bell and I would be very surprised that he was involved in this.

Concerning Pat Symonds, he his a real motorsport guy and maybe he was aware about this. I don't think it was his idea but it's possible that he has been convince to manage it by Flavio. Flavio had an huge influence capacity level, people can judge Pat but I don't know a lot of body that would resist to him when they are subordinated.

Briatore is master and commander. End of the story.

Why? because only if you are briatore, you can dress like this, while a few of mr. nobodys talks about him and his cheats on a forum. Like if he gives fuck about it!!!





Bravo Flavio, bravissimo!!!

Amen to that . Maybe he's a homo .
Those young, good-looking women have to be whores to sleep with a fat toad like that . I wouldn't sleep with a fat, ugly whale even if I was living in an apartment, and she offered me a mansion with a Ferrari, but to each his own.
