    The best way to solve a problem is to attack its cause… Ron is back just after Max is out.
    Well, technically Jean Todt shouldn’t be the president of FIA in charge yet, but the FIA’s website didn’t need much time to make Max disappear.

    So… Will we see Flavio walking along the paddock today? Or will he wait some time and be patient until the storm gets calm?

      If I am not wrong the new FIA president takes office right after the election, so Todt is president

      Will we see Flavio walking along the paddock today?

      Flavio is still banned for life so unless that decision is overturned it is unlikely we will see him in the paddock …

    Yes I noticed it short after my comment, the stupid TV dudes did mistake that. This has nothing to do with real politics, so we may see how this short campaign to regulate next year’s spendings are managed by Todt. Farewell Mr. Mosley! :-)
    About Flavio, I do not expect him again in the circuits… It was an ironical message, seems Ron Dennis took a license to come back as visitor just when Max disappeared from the paddok :-P

      I think Ron Dennis may have come to talk to people from Mercedes and to his business partners from the area. Lots of going on behind the scenes with Mercedes, McLaren, Brawn etc …  Mosley being out of the picture surely made his visit less stressful :-)
