The Spaniard’s future at Ferrari is in serious doubt
Tag Archive: Flavio Briatore
F1’s ‘silly season’ is bursting into life at Monza — and almost every team in pitlane is playing ball.
That goes even for the sport’s dominant Mercedes, and one of the highest-paid and most marketable stars, Lewis Hamilton. Boss Toto Wolff had already lifted the lid by warning that if the Briton and his teammate Nico Rosberg do not fix up their broken relationship, Mercedes might have to change its lineup for 2015.
Flavio Briatore would be a good addition as formula one finds its direction for the future.
That is the claim of Fernando Alonso, the sport’s highest paid and arguably most highly rated driver. Recently, a man always closely aligned with the trajectory of Alonso’s career – Briatore – was linked with a return to the sport as chairman of a new popularity working group.
Ferrari is paying a dear price for its geographical location, according to Flavio Briatore.
Last month, former Benetton and Renault chief Briatore said the fabled Maranello team should consider relocating to the UK. “In my opinion, Ferrari must have a base in the UK, where all of the technology of formula one is concentrated,” he said.
