The former boss of Formula 1 teams Benetton and Renault Flavio Briatore said that before to joining Benetton, he was close to becoming an Advisor to Donald trump, who is now President of the United States.
“Before you lead, “Benetton”, I planned to return to new York. I received an offer from Donald trump. He wanted me to work for him in the United States. Had to help him with a casino in Atlantic city. Then Donald has not gone into politics. I have always had a good relationship with trump,” said Briatore in the podcast Beyond The Grid.
Recall that after the scandal of 2009 with “crashgate” Briatore was barred for life from Formula 1, but won the appeal, but its decision has not returned to racing.
