Reports this evening suggest that Lakshmi Mittal may consider buying Queens Park Rangers after concerns over recent PR.
The Indian steel magnate who joined the club late in 2007 remains one of the wealthiest men in the world and is represented at the club by the popular board member, his son-in-law, Amit Bhatia.
The Telegraph are reporting that Mittal is now considering buying out Briatore at QPR as a solution to the current problems highlighted by the media.
One of Mittal’s associates told the newspaper: ‘Lakshmi is extremely concerned about what has happened.
‘He is keen to improve his image in this country and takes this matter very seriously. He is now considering whether the best way forward would be for him to buy Flavio out of QPR.’
Whether this comes to fruition remains to be seen with Briatore’s future remaining in doubt despite not being directly involved in the FIA hearing on Monday.
