The budget cap was introduced to give teams like this a start,so it's no surprise they're struggling with it's abolishment.Good job Manor have RB on board or they would probably be in the same boat.

It will be a real shame if they don't make it to the first race. I hope Max is being made fully aware that this is his fault - only choosing teams who followed orders and took Cosworth engines, over established racing operations. So we have a bunch of underfunded new teams maybe not taking their places on the grid while Prodrive, Lola et al sit on their thumbs and wonder what they did wrong. Lotus and Virgin look safe, USF1 still look like a joke.

Wouldn't have thought someone with a failed racing series behind them how has (allegedly) bumped lots of creditors would be the best move for a struggling startup team....Let's get simon Gillett in while we're at it :p

Team is in a weak position and probably desperate for investors, bit of a shame, can be exploited.

If Teixeira buys Campos, will he attend the races in Australia, Malaysia, China, UK, etc where he owes shed loads of money? where he has lost people their livelyhoods????????????

Will Teixeira be allowed to invest his own money into a team when his company presumably owes many people a small fortune after the collapse of A1GP? The man's ability and scruples have come under real questioon n recent months, and his involvement could make for Andrea Moda II. Still, it would be better for the team to get on track briefly and try to do well enough to secure decent investors, or at least opportunities elsewhere for Bruno and other staff, than to not make the grid at all.
