Taz the branding is by way of loan purposes for 5 years.Thence all is repayable and he walks away.

Do you honestly think he is going to advance more
without seeing results and sponsors coming on board

He unjustly got in to F1 by doing a deal with the devil, using Moseley's right hand stooge Donnelley as his PR man, ahead of far better qualified teams, then plays the little man card to do Max's work claiming it all needs to be "fun" and amusingly, cheap.

The only cheap thing in F1 is you Branson, no wonder they do not run your cars with the normal Virgin logo....

Shabby.

If he is only loaning the money to the team, then what right does he have to put his logos on the car and have the team named after him?

Sounds really like he wants to have his cake and eat it.

Be honest. fill the grid up with no mark teams to make it look like f1 is on the up. It aint . Monaco is a nice place yes lots of history yes but the racing is poor it's follow the leader.it would be more exciting if they all drove 2cv's.everybody watches motor sport for the racing. not to see how many cars can be lapped or crash out.I aint bothered which celebs are on the grid We want racing where all 24 cars have a chance. not 6.If something isnt done to give the lesser/new teams a chance straight of then f1 will die a slow death. Arrows Ligier.Toyota.Minardi Lotus (as was).Footwork.Brabham ring a bells. Oh and by the way Moto GP is in the same boat
