Am i missing something here. Whatever Jackie Stuart earns form his ties with RBS is a drop in the ocean compared with the losses. RBS is a global brand who through F1 are promoting themselves globally for a relatively small amount.

As long as they remain with Williams I can't see the logic of getting rid of Stewart.If he needs a new job get him one in the Cabinet, he would do a better job than all the numpties currently there. Its a bit rich for a politician with all their BS expenses and their world class ability to blow our cash to expect someone to walk away from a contract just because the company with whom he signed it is now effectively nationalised.

why the hell should he walk away from a contract? Bizarre. This sort of public moral brow beating is pathetic.
If you don't want a contract renewed, then don't renew it, but to publicly try and force someone into ripping up a perfectly good contract is so hypocritical.

To people who want Stewart to rip up his contract: why don't you lead by example: there are people starving in this world, you don't need all your money. You should give half of all your wages to charity, and make do with the rest. It's only fair.

I pay my taxes, and frankly I think it's a joke that 'bail out' money is being used to pay people millions to promote the brand. Sure, having RBS on the side of the Williams cars helps raise awareness ni the brand, but some scottish midget running around behind the scenes does nothing to further the company (epecially in these hard economic times...

If the other 'ambassadors' are on the same wage as Mr Stewart, then the overall cost of these guys 'promoting' the brand is equal to 10% of RBS's total losses... And I bet if they turn a profit us shareholders (i.e. the tax payers) will not see a penny back!

Didnt hear anybody complain when RBS was paying the BRITISH government billions in taxes when things were good. Didnt hear anybody complain when they were creating thousands of jobs in England thus generating tax revenue. Didnt hear anybody compalin when Scotlands oil kept the UK going in the late 70s and 80s. Scotlands budget is 33 Billion - Scotlands tax revenues is 34 - 35 Billion, excluding oil and gas, which incidently goes into the UK budget..go down to the houses of Parliament and tell them to give it back and give Scotland independance - you'll get a resounding NO!! Scotland - Wales - England - N.Ireland are all dependant on one 1 another - GET OVER IT Jonny English
