Symonds offered immunity in race-fix case

By on

According to our colleagues at 'autosport', Pat Symonds, Renault's Director of Engineering, has been offered immunity from punishment by the FIA if he offers full disclosure of the facts surrounding the race-fix allegations.

At this point it is not clear if Symonds has accepted the immunity from punishment offer, but should he do so it means only Renault boss Flavio Briatore will face the FIA's World Motor Sport Council next week without any such deal in place. FIA president Max Mosley confirmed at the Italian Grand Prix that Nelson Piquet Jr. would be exempt too.
