presumably though both Diageo (Smirnoff and Royal Challenge i think) and now Heineken (i think they are now have the controlling share of United Spirits and United Breweries) still have interest in Formula 1.

of course they may choose to change teams or Heineken may be more happy with their deal directly with FOM, but i dont see these brands leaving formula 1 given that they still clearly think the sport is still a strong platform with which to advertise through.

that said, more worrisome for the team, i would think, is what happens when the Sahara sponsorship/money deal/well dries up?

i would support a Heineken title sponsor, a 'Force Amsterdam' renaming, sign up Max, and go back to that green that looked so good on the old Jordans.

I think United Spirits is controlled by Diageo, though I confess I find it hard to keep track of who owns what booze brands these days. So long as I can still buy them, that's the main thing.

they already have an owner under house arrest so nothing new here.

actually think its fair to say that the team has done better since their owners' have found themselves in all this legal trouble.

even a case to be made that once meddlesome owners are out of the picture, then the proper professionals will have the room necessary to carry on with the work of improving the team!

It's a cliché, but the team is worth what people will pay for it. For $250 million, you get a mid-grid Formula 1 team with decent facilities.
