There is no way FIA would have kicked Renault out of F1,....it's a French team FCS. Everyone in the pits knew Alonso could not win the race before it started, so they thought nothing of it until the crash after he got fueled,....safety car out, everyone else had to fuel, very suspicious,...
How come Renault gets off lighter than McLaren for spying, race fixing is just as bad if not worse!
I smell a RAT or is that FIA

'06 Tungsten Pearl IS350,...with battle wounds and scars,...almost new.

I'm confused by this article, are they going to continue racing or are they banned for two years?

I see Alonso talking about the upcoming race on F1 site.

To my understanding, they were sentenced to the 2-year ban but then the sentence was suspended, just as it happens in our criminal court system.

OK, the article heading is confusing "Two-year suspended ban for Renault over Singapore conspiracy" ..shouldn't it be "Two-year ban suspended for Renault over Singapore conspiracy"

Oh well, looks like Kubica will be racing for Renault next season than, he was waiting for this decision.

There's still a chance that Renault will exit the sport. They will announce their decision in November.

The sport could not afford to ban Renault. They are a constructor and an engine supplier, it would have caused havoc to ban them. The ban is more like a probation period here in the states. Basically, if they screw up in the next two years, they will be banned.

Basically Flavio and Pat were the scapegoats. Hmmm, well Flavio is guilty, he was the one that most likely told Nelson to crash. Pat did not have anything to do with it, I am sure.

Sad to see Flavio leave, he is a character, and the sport needs it. At the end of the day, as much as I dont agree with it, it is a team sport and sometimes you take one for the team.

How many times players fake an injury in soccer to change the momentum, etc. Same in football, that is why now you loose a time out if a player is injured within the last 2 minutes of the game.
