- Flavio Briatore waits on Football League to decide his future at QPR
Reports suggesting that Flavio Briatore is planning to pre-empt the Football League's board meeting to decide his future in the game by selling his stake in Queens Park Rangers are wide of the mark, according to sources close to the club
- The Football League board will meet next week to discuss the implications of the Italian's ban from Formula One for cheating, and it is possible the board will decide that Briatore is no longer fit to be involved with QPR as an owner or a director.
- There is some speculation that Briatore is therefore considering withdrawing from football of his own accord, to avoid his name being dragged through the mud any further.
- FIA's Renault judgment reeks of realpolitik However, it is more likely that he will wait until the Football League board have made their position known. After all, it is still possible that Briatore might escape punishment.
- The Football League is understood to be paying particular attention to the fact that Briatore has not been directly banned from being signed to a F1 team. Instead, the FIA World Motor Sport Council would not grant a licence to that team if they employ him.
- If the board's decision is unfavourable to Briatore, and the Italian is forced to withdraw from the Championship club, it is possible that Amit Bhatia, QPR's vice-chairman, would step up his interest and buy out his Italian friend.
- Bhatia is the son-in-law of billionaire industrialist Lakshmi Mittal, the eighth-richest man in the world, but he is wealthy in his own right and has on a number of occasions stressed his dedication to the club." Telegraph
