No decision over Briatore

08 October 2009 03:39
Flavio Briatore must wait to discover whether he will be allowed to remain at the helm of Queens Park Rangers following his expulsion from the world of Formula One. The Italian is a co-owner of the Championship club but his participation has been the subject of a Football League probe after he was thrown out of motorsport having been found guilty of race-fixing. A league meeting on Thursday discussed the Italian's suitability to own a football club, but no judgement has yet been made. League rules state that individuals cannot be a director or hold a majority stake in a club if they are officially banned from another sport. "The board conducted a comprehensive review of the situation, including the receipt of advice from leading counsel," said a Football League statement. "After considering all the information presently available to it and in the interest of due process, the board will seek responses from Mr Briatore before commenting further."
