London, Oct 8(ANI): After being banned for life by Formula One’s governing body, disgraced former Renault team chief Flavio Briatore will be reportedly kicked out of the Queens Park Rangers (QPR) by the Football League on Thursday.

Briatore and Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone had bought QPR in a 14 million pound takeover in August 2007.

The decision will be taken at a landmark board meeting today when Notts County’s controversial takeover will be discussed.

“The owners are genuine about what they want to do. I don’t envisage any problems and, if there were, I fear the consequences,” The Sun quoted Peter Trembling, Notts County’s executive chairman, as saying.Briatore was banned from the sport for instructing one of his drivers, Nelson Piquet Junior, to deliberately crash his car during last year’s Singapore Grand Prix to help Fernando Alonso win crucial points for the championship.

There were concerns that Briatore would fight the ban, making it difficult for the League to boot him out as well, but as he has missed the appeal deadline, the Football League chairman Lord Mawhinney is free to show him the door. (ANI)
