Flav trial begins

“Flavour Flav’s” (Flavio Briatore) trial to overturn his lifetime ban from all FIA Motorsports activity was held in a French court yesterday, with very little news reporting upon it besides the announcement that the Court’s ruling will be handed down on January 5th, 2010.

The 59yr old Italian is seeking $1m Euros in damages to his reputation along with having the ban lifted in order for him to resume his racing related activities, most notably managing his current flock of F1 Piloto’s, while I believe that his Lieutenant Pat Symonds, who refused a immunity deal during the initial “Crash-Gate” proceedings and instead was given a five year ban from Motorsports has also joined the lawsuit.

So does this mean we’ll now have to wait until early January to learn Renault’s future?
