Formula 1 : News Briatore – F1-Live.com

Most people in the F1 paddock seem to be of the opinion that McLaren was not as innocent as they claim in this whole spy saga in F1. On the other hand, if there was more to it, I wonder if it is really possible to hide it all. Someone or the other will come out and spill the beans… people are like that… when they are going down, they’d rather take the whole ship down with them. At least 1 or 2 of them will want to… Seems like Renault boss Flavio Briatore feels the most cheated through this whole episode. The Ferrari has a HUGE advantage coming in to the 2007 season with bridgestone tyres on all machines. Seems like McLaren might have derived the biggest chunk of their performance leap from 2006 to 2007 using data such as the ones alluded to below by Mr. Briatore.

“Had I only known Ferrari’s weight distribution, or how big their tank is, if I had a bit of those documents, then we surely wouldn’t be in this situation today,” the Italian Flavio Briatore told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Briatore charged: “Dennis says he’s immaculate, but it’s hard to believe him. No, I don’t believe in his good faith. In a team everyone knows everything.”
