Briatore forced to wind up management firm
Flavio Briatore is out of F1 forever
Despite resigning from his role as managing director of the Renault F1 team, Flavio Briatore still manages a number of high profile drivers. The findings of the World Motor Sport Council, which has banned him indefinitely from the sport, mean that he will no longer be able to continue driver management in any FIA sanctioned series and that any driver associated with him will not be eligible for a superlicense.

Briatore’s firm, FFBB, manages Heikki Kovalainen and Mark Webber as well as Renault Development Drivers such as Romain Grosjean and Lucas di Grassi. In the past he has managed Jarno Trulli and Fernando Alonso, amongst others.

In a fairly blunt statement the FIA made clear that any driver associated or managed by Briatore, will not be granted a superlicense - the essential qualification required to compete in Formula One. Kovalainen who is currently seeking a drive for next season will not be able to use the services of Briatore in his negotiations with McLaren or other potential teams.
