Friday press conference - Chinese GP - Pt.2

John, we spoke to Max yesterday and he informed us that to fund himself for this season in F1, he's basically giving away part of his future earnings. Could I just get your thoughts on that first of all as team principal and whether you feel that that's a good idea going forward for a young driver to boost himself up the ladder, rather than a driver who perhaps would bring in sponsorship for a team?

John Booth:
It's nothing new. There are lots of schemes that have been tried over the years. I think Justin Wilson was the last one that I know that had a similar scheme; and sometimes it's required to find a way into F1. If it becomes self-funding then it's a great idea.
