LONDON: Brazilian Nelson Piquet
is eyeing a move to NASCAR s pickup truck racing series after his stint in Formula One was tainted by a race-fixing controversy with Renault.
The latter was given a five-year suspension after they were found guilty of conspiring with driver Nelson Piquet
Jr to fix last year's Singapore Grand Prix in eventual winner Fernando Alonso's favour.
But the latest controversy over Renault's Flavio Briatore and Pat Symonds ordering their F1 driver Nelson Piquet
Jr to crash during last year's Singapore Grand Prix so that his team mate Fernando Alonso could win the race, is surely the most damaging to date.
While the ruling by the FIA has pretty much exonerated Nelson Piquet
Jr and the Renault F1 team, Flavio Briatore faces a lifetime ban from any FIA activity as well as legal action from Piquet
who it is alleged wants to be released from his contract.
