There's a fun interview with Flavio in the Times .

"In London, maybe I go out once a month, but only to places I own. I never go to someone else's restaurant or bar.”

“There will be no problems between Fernando and Lewis this season because they are very intelligent. The problem between them was not personal animosity"

“What Bernie has done is sensational”

“In the last 20 years I speak to Bernie at least five or six times a day. We are in the same business, we travel together, he is my best friend. Whatever I do, Bernie is always part of it."

“I'm not excited about cars. It takes me 15 minutes to get in and out of a Ferrari or a Porsche,”

“The centre of football is England,” Briatore said. “If you want to do Formula One you need to be in England. If you want to make champagne you go to France. If you want to make ham you go to Modena"

"If you are a butler, or a waiter, you have to work hard to have success and then one day you might make it to F1 or have a football team."

Enjoy the link....

For some reason I never knew much about Flavio before last year. I like his style and would even take his sloppy 2nds except for Naomi.

Obviously trusted each other to do business together so no surprise they are friends really.
