Holy moly that second-from-last paragraph is horribly written! Fewer commas please!

It's not entirely clear to me what happened... can someone explain it properly?

Wow, like father like son. The entitlement mentality seems to go deep. Wrongful dismissal? Why would Paul need a reason to dismiss his manager? It happens every day, and as long as he paid him his percentage of monies he had helped him earn, I don't see the problem.

@ian.wright
I think the monies owed refer to di Resta's agreement to the deal that Hamilton offered him, only for di Resta to realise he was being ripped off and he then pulled out of the deal and fired Hamilton.

So it's about that sponsorship deal in which Hamilton appears to have misled di Resta. If that's what is going on then I don't think di Resta has a case to answer as the contract was fraudulent.

zed. di resta appears to have had a sponsor prepared to bring 5.5m to fi. but it would have clashed with another sponsor. to cancel the other sponsors deal would have cost 1m, leaving 4.5 extra to fi. however lulus dad seems to have deliberately told di resta, that it would cost TWO million to drop the other sponsor. so had it gone through, mr Hamilton snr could have pocketed the missing million. when di resta found out, he sacked lulus dad. I cannot see how Hamilton snr can hope to win the case. he deceived di resta and the proposed sponsor.

The Hamiltons strike again. What a controversial family. I don't know anything about some of their family members but Anthony and Lewis says it all. The father is interested only in money, the son is interested more about glamour. Does F1 needs them at all?!
