V6, he never actually owned them. But he's made money alright. The deal was, if I'm not mistaken, that Virgin became naming sponsors in return for giving the team a long-term LOAN that guaranteed enough budget for them to get started. IE, free advertising. So I would assume what Marussia have done is buy him out in some way.

sodesu, you're correct as far as I remember the money was a loan and so he made some money but their poor show up till now may have cost him some credibility to.
