Now why would any company run into a multi year partnership deal if its customer is in so called 'financial crisis' ? The crisis report was a big truce. They also had a similar deal with 3d Systems recently. I think people should give it a break & stop concluding Vijay's bad businesses & FI's being in crisis or not ! This team has come up every year in a progressive way & it will do so this year n in the coming years too.

ambik. there is no comment on what partnership means. who is paying who, or maybe it is just that equipment is supplied in return for advertising. nothing in the press release indicates the context of the partnership. apart fro that, the deal, whatever it is, is between the TEAM and a supplier, not a personal deal with mallya.

@Richard

I agree matey. But a partnership is all about give and take,that's what I know. So if you have nothing in place to give how would you expect to take? Is that simple isn't it? So why stretch the issue.
And for all those people who are so concerned about Vijay's KFA business,just an information that the Indian government has accepted to bail out the ailing airline yesterday. The confirmation will be made soon.
And some more point to add is that FI is also running a driver academy as you know,is this not enough of a commitment to stone a place in the sport for now and for many years to come? Any one would be a fool to make so much of an advancement and then suddenly conclude that 'hell we are in crisis'. I mean c'mmon for god sake they are not running a printing press or something.

On the basis that VJ Mallya didn't pay pilots and staff for up to 6 months, and owed 870 million Pounds on the airline, then I think it would be a brave person that put money (or equipment) anywhere near this bloke.
