It's the same team as in the real assets and the personnel are the same, however that was all that Stroll & Co bought. The important bits of the structure, i.e. the team name and the team's entry still remain the property of the administrators of a company that will no doubt be liquidated very shortly.


It's not F1's legalise per se, it is basic English commercial law, and for reasons known best to Mallya's creditors and the banks with liens over those assets that were not sold, Stroll and the other consortiums who had shown interest were unable to comply with the criteria required to purchase it all.

You would have thought, that the important bits of the structure are the real assets and the personnel, after all, that's what makes the team work, not the team name?

Basically what I was going to say. The team name is the most important bit if you consider business and legality more important than the actual team competing in the sport.

Seems somewhere, F1 got it backwards.

You can’t put the staff up as security though and the actual racing materiel isn’t worth that much, especially the cars which are obsolete almost when built.

Unless there is a massive rule change, the cars are clearly not obsolete, hence Ferrari's and Vettels win and especially Force India/Race point's, performance throughout this last race weekend.

There are 8 races to go.
