Briatore steered Michael Schumacher to world titles in 1994 and 1995, and Fernando Alonso to a similar double in 2005/2006 before leaving his role as Renault team boss following the 'crashgate' scandal in 2008/2009.

San Raffaele hospital, where Briatore is being treated, is the same facility that has been looking after former F1 racer and gold-medal Olympian Alex Zanardi following his road accident earlier this year.
