To be honest, that adds nothing to what we knew already, and what has been reported better on the business pages of many reputable newspapers.

a) it's from gmm and b) they got it from italiaracing, the link to their story is here: http://www.italiaracing.net/notizia.asp?id=38498&cat=1

but yeah, same old same old. the different angle on the story compared to the general media version is the suggestion of potential bail-out names though they seem a bit left-field.

Let's get this straight. Mallya is in no position to do anything. The only chance is if Bernie decides to mount a rescue and, if he does, there's a good chance that Briatore will be involved because the two are good friends and it it would be a clever way of getting the Italian back into F1 in a favourable light. That's how I see it.

Didn't Briatore get a life time ban?

If I remember rightly it was reduced after he went to court and got it overturned.

I wonder if Lance Armstrong will ever get the chance to run a team of his own? hmmmm...............probably not.

Is it just me, or am I wrong in thinking that VJ isn't actually doing the whole Force India thing on his own? I thought that he had other business partners in there with him? The ones that had recently allotted £50 million to improve upon the technology they have at the factory?

Yes but as has been said he knew the right people.
In an earlier life before F1 he was a several times convicted fraudster but fled the country before he ever got to "clink"
Very few are "squeaky clean" in F1 and history will show that they never have been

There are some dodgy people in ALMS sportscar racing - LMP2 category, I was always puzzled how some of these teams are funded which prompted me to look at a certain team leader's backround, it's a veritable rogues gallery if you delve deep!
Come to that there are some pretty unsavoury characters in many forms of racing unsurprising when you consider the potential financial gains particularly in F1. Probably explains why I am such a big fan of club events
