Flavio BriatoreAs reported on BBC.co.uk

“In 2008, I will delegate my appointment to someone else and I will stay away from the spotlight,” Briatore told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I was pushed to carry on for two reasons,” he added. “First, the fact that Renault’s new president Carlos Ghosn is fully behind the F1 project. Second, the team will lose Fernando Alonso, so I preferred to give continuity to the work.”

“When Fernando decided last winter, Renault was changing president and there were no guarantees on the future,” he said. Alonso wasn’t feeling valued properly so he accepted a proposal. I don’t step in over the choices of the drivers I manage – I only take care of their contracts and sponsors.”
