Can't see Mercedes accepting this too readily. If Henkel are unable to control their appointed representatives, that's their problem to sort out. I'm sure Brawn didn't sign the deal with janitor or the tea-lady.

In their statement, Henkel claims that the deal was organized by a notorious scoundrel and signed by a "fifth-level" officer of the corporation.

Nick Fry has done it again, that's all.

according to auto motor und sport,

This is not of Fry's doing. A trickster by the name of Kai B who was a PR officer for Henkel is the transgressor. He duped all involved....
According to the report Mercedes were informed of this before their takeover. It specualtes that Henkel may possibly still sponsor Mercedes but at a reduced rate and not the exorbatant 90 million quoted

Someone messed up badly on the Brawn GP side. I can't remember the guys name that delt with at Henkel but when you google search it comes up over and over with articles about him being a scam artist. It is up to Brawn to check who they are dealing with not up to Henkel to try predict who is going to screw them over

Small-Fry was still taken by the notorious and previously convicted fraudster, Willy Luchs, and the former Henkel employee, which a simple google search would have prevented.
