TJ13 reported back in December that Gary Hartstein’s boss had received an unsolicited visit from the FIA, which he claims was an attempt to mute the Former F1 Doc by having him sacked from his current post.
Gary Hartstein now reveals that he complained to the FIA and requested their ethics committee examine the issues surrounding that visit.
Not long after the Dean of Hartstein’s facility had been visited, Philippe Streiff was publicly threatened by the FIA for his criticism of Jean Todt and Sallient despite the fact as TJ13 commented, he could in no way be sued for libel nor slander.
Hartstein believes both his criticism of the FIA’s handling of the Bianchi investigation and Streiff’s comments drew “gangster-like wrath of these two critters [Todt and Saillant] BECAUSE THEY ARE PANICKED.
Todt and Sallient are panicked because they are aware of their own and the FIA’s culpability in the incidents surrounding Bianchi’s crash at the 2014 Japanese GP, alleges Hartstein.
It is my firm belief (and their actions certainly don’t belie this!) that they are SO legally vulnerable for the management of the Bianchi accident that they probably fear not just for their cushy posts at the FIA, but for their freedom and fortunes. If Mr. and Mrs. Bianchi decided to hire lawyers and to demand clarity.”
TJ13 in the past 24 hours reported that Philippe Bianchi has indeed retained the services of a lawyer and suggests that if anyone is found responsible for the crash of his son, “they must pay”.
The whitewash that was the FIA investigation into the Jules Bianchi affair and their Pontius Pilate hand washing of all responsibility – is one of the most reprehensible examples of corporate behaviour in recent memory.
Further, notice – the English speaking media are still failing to report Bianchi’s fathers implied threat from yesterday and consistently fail to call the FIA to proper account over their officers’ responsibility in the terrible tragedy in Suzuka.
Listen to Gary talk on these subjects when he was on the TJ13 Courtroom Podcast last year.
