Could not agree more, total motorsport nut but my wifes 21 years worth of shares with Lloyds are worth rat **** at present, her pension is not much healthier and they want to sponsor an F1 team, get real(in fact thats a worthless comment isnt it, they are not in the real world are they)Lloyds should get its house in order reward its shareholders and repay the Uk for monies lent then and only then start fanciful flights of fancy with all the top brass gaining smart seats at all the right events.
Branson and Virgin F1, good luck to you matey, cant wait to see you in the fold, a man prepared to do what is requuired, please take over lloyds!!!

says that they are looking for a title sponsor. but i thought that virgin was the title sponsor. anyway, it is amazing that their team principal has been ousted already. doesnt say much for the stability or credentials of the team!

Branson is a "me too" businessman. Before this space thing, all he did was copy successful businesses. If you've got enough cash to do it, there are very few business models that can't be mimicked. Apple is one, and as he found out to his cost, so is Coca Cola. He got very lucky last year but Brawn may well turn out to be one as well.
