So where do Williams stand in the queue of creditors? Personally, I hope unpaid sponsorship money to a commercial enterprise in a multi-million pound industry isn't given a higher priority than money owed to personal investors with their life's savings to lose.

johnson, please read the story! the sponsor was hamleys, and the bank is mentioned, along with its link, through ownership of hamleys. but as the icelandic banks collapsed a long time ago, the money is probably overdue money.

I have you to read the story for me! lol
Besides, all this talk of money being owed does make you wonder why Uncle Frank was yelping loudest for the Budget caps! He also sold some of his team to an Austrian company a few weeks back....No longer 100% independants then :rolleyes:

It is sad to see F1 descend into criminal realms, when it has long been the last bastion of decency and honour in sport and business.
Let's hope that drivers (other than Piquet Jnr.) can maintain their integrity.
