Dumping Briatore was biggest mistake says Kovalainen

Heikki Kovalainen admits his Formula 1 career may have been cut short because he split with Flavio Briatore. But Kovalainen then terminated his management contract with Briatore late in 2009, when Briatore was banned from Formula 1 over the ‘crashgate’ scandal. “When my McLaren contract was ending and I had to quickly get a new contract, while the drivers managed by Flavio did not have a super license at that point,” said Kovalainen. “Yes, Flavio could have made better deals for me, and he had made the best deals of my career before that episode.”. Kovalainen is now focusing on building up his rallying career, which so far in Japan has been successful.
