World Motor Sport Council has found Renault guilty

21 Sep 2009

Monckton tenant Paul Harris appeared in the World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) in Paris today, representing the governing body of Formula One, the Fédération Internationale l’Automobile (FIA) in relation to charges brought against the Renault team by the FIA arising out of allegations made by ex-driver Nelson Piquet junior who claims he was instructed to crash at Singapore last year, to aid team-mate Fernando Alonso’s victory.  Renault has since received a two-year suspended ban from Formula 1 for breaking the sporting code.  WMSC found Renault “not only compromised the integrity of the sport but also endangered the lives of spectators, officials, other competitors and Nelson Piquet Jr. himself.”
