Ex-F1 driver Eddie Irvine  nightclub brawl in MilanEx Formula One driver, Irishman Eddie Irvine, was this morning handed a six-month prison sentence for his part in a nightclub brawl in Milan in December 2008.

Eddie Irvine and Gabriele Moratti, the son of former Milan mayor and education minister Letizia Moratti, were involved in a fight in the VIP area of a Milan club back in December 2008, following which they sued each other.

Given that today’s sentences will almost certainly be appealed, legal experts are already predicting the case will fall foul of the statute of limitations, due to expire at the end of 2015, when the case is declared null and void.

Witnesses in court have claimed the reason for the fight between the two was a text message sent by Mr Irvine to an ex-girlfriend of Mr Moratti.

The Irishman, Eddie Irvine drove for Jordan, Ferrari and Jaguar over ten Formula 1 seasons, score up four victories.
