So if they don't get a driver with substantial backing will the team fold? Chilton brings in over 10 million (bonkers I know) so are the looking for driver sponsors to cover 1/3 or more of the operating budget? That's a pretty precarious position to be in as the money is delivered in stages and doesn't always appear.

C'mon all you lil rich kids. Pay us your money and we will let you risk life and limb trying to stay out of the way of the real racers while you drive our mobile chicanes.

Just one more shoddy decision by this shambolic F3 bunch pretending to be an F1 team!
Brings F1 to a new low....The sooner this amateurish bunch are put out of their misery the better.
Lets face it what possible progress (up the grid) could this “team” possibly make with 2 pay drivers?
