I have not followed it, but to me it falls one way or the other.
A- Did he say or sugest it was him and lead others to believe it was him
B- did the publicity machine claim it was him acting without his clearance.
If B, no brob, scold and carry on.
If A, you pay X fees to have a top singer at your function, and a double turns up, what do you think then?
I think this basically covers it https://katyfairman.com/2020/05/26/my-h ... ssion=true
"I had no doubt that Daniel would never be so malicious as to “cheat” in a charity sim racing competition."
Except, he did. But it isn't just that, he made a mockery of his series, his employer and his sponsors in a public way. He acted unprofessionally and absolutely deserved to be dropped for this behaviour. It doesn't matter that it was just a video game for charity, it was still something he was paid to do as part of his duties as an employee of Audi and a participant of Formula E.
Like it or not, the days of wrecking hotel rooms, pissing on your team mate's car and other raucous behaviour are over. Companies don't want bad optics (especially those who have had enough of that in the recent past) and there is plenty of talent out there more than willing to replace you if you misbehave.
