اتهامات غش في سباق فورمولا 1

Flavio Briatore

scandal

Hello and welcome to BBC Xtra English!

Today Doug and Liliane talk about a scandal that has rocked the world of Formula 1.

Flavio Briatore, the head of the Renault Formula 1 team has resigned amid allegations of race-fixing.

Briatore was accused of ordering one of the Renault team drivers, Nelson Piquet Junior, to crash into one of the race course's walls in order to allow another of the team's drivers to win the race.

Luckily Nelson was not hurt in the crash, but after his crash, his team mate managed to win the race in the Singapore Grand Prix.

But whilst the allegations were not contested by the Renault team, many in the racing world were surprised, especially as the crash itself was very dangerous and it would be difficult to imagine how someone would do it on purpose.

Eddie Jordan, a famous Formula 1 manager said that he was shocked that a crash like this could have been planned.

He told the BBC that there were many reasons why this story was incredible because of the safety ramifications.

Not only was the driver's life in danger, but also the lives of the safety marshals who work on the race track.

Even though the Renault boss has resigned, the company will still have to appear before the sport's governing body on Monday to answer some very serious questions.

Although I'm not a fans of Formula 1 but I think the most crashes on this danger game are related to safety and technical items so for these reasons and others of course we may find some allegations or contested of judging. But the ramifications itself could be much worst. In fact, this is the nature in a world of racing and that means we have no control on circumstances or surprises.
