I would say, sbl on tour, that Flavio at least was brave enough to assume the cheating when he was caught and leave the sport voluntarily (along with Symmonds). I remember another cheating scandal just one year before, where Mr. Ron Dennis continuously denied any wrongdoing from his team, even after Mr. Alonso screw him over. Before the posts of wrathful indignation for comparing two very different cheating scandals, let me just point out a couple of things:
. I would say the crashgate wouldn’t have happened if Piquet wasn’t willing to do what he did. He’s the one that crashed on purpose, so the disgrace of the “memory of all of those people who have died as a result of accidents in Formula 1 and motor sport in general” lays more on Piquet’s shoulders than anybody else’s.
. They were both cheating scandals: one gave to a car an advantage during a particular race, the other gave two cars an advantage (and advantage should be read as “something they had because of the cheating, so they shouldn’t have had it) during a whole season.
Forgiving is a remarkable human quality: Who in here has never cheated on anything in his/her life? (an exam, a partner, a football game, by receiving more change than was supposed to when buying something and staying quiet)?
