Former team boss Flavio Briatore was banned from motorsport for life, while engineering director Pat Symonds received a five year ban. Five days earlier Renault had announced it would not contest the charges, and Briatore and Symonds left the team. Their bans were later overturned by a French court, a decision appealed by the FIA. In April 2010 the FIA reached a settlement with both men, who agreed not to work in Formula One until 2013
