MrE will pay various people to handle different areas of CVC. It would be easy for someone to be upto something and falsifying facts and wotnot without MrE knowing.

Sadly, as MrE is not a loved figure he is instantly guilty, despite the facts and so far lack of hard evidence.

Cue disagrees for the crime of stating truims.

The subject at hand on this page is one of the most serious and having the biggest repercussions ever in the history of F1 as such it is not a matter for the usual childish/stupid sort of posting/commenting.
Ten hours has passed and my challenge only netted seven marble less disagrees that's if no one of these seven marble less disagrees could press the button more than once.

Should it come to be that there was illegal activities surrounding the sale, is it not true that the whole contract/sale/agreement be declared null and void? If so the commercial rights would revert back to its previous owner(s) I believe.

Would it also not be true that CVC that would be out what ever money due to their faulty due diligence? Or would this fall under a certain statute of limitations?

Sorry, lots of legal questions, I hope someone intelligent would answer these. If you don't have an intelligent answer please move on.
