In the spring we reported that Flavio Briatore, the Italian manager who has achieved great success in the corporate world, the owner of a multi-million dollar fortune, has been officially named ambassador of Formula 1.
This was yet another confirmation that the reputation of the former head of teams such as Benetton and Renault, then excommunicated from the sport after the scandal linked to the falsification of the results of the 2008 Singapore Grand Prix, has finally been restored.
He once had close friendly and business relationships with Bernie Ecclestone, who was the de facto owner of Formula 1 for nearly forty years, but after the arrival of Liberty Media, the ex-head of championship management was removed from the business. However, Briatore’s services were in demand again and now Stefano Domenicali, CEO and president of Formula 1, as well as Toto Wolff, head of the Mercedes team, are happy to spend their summer holidays in his company.
The 72-year-old Italian posted a photo on social networks in which all three were captured on the deck of a fairly large vessel plowing the vast Mediterranean Sea. According to Italian sources, everything happens in the vicinity of the island of Sardinia – it is there that the famous Billionaire club, owned by Briatore, is located.
