107SS2009: Will Lotus have Mercedes engines next year?.
Mercedes is insisting on a payment up-front of $10m before the end of the 2014 season, and a strict payment schedule during 2015, otherwise engines will not be released.

Reminds me of the last days of Arrows F1 where they had to do last minute deals to run the cars, even having to get the ECU's released to have the cars pass FIA scrutineering and then have the ECU's taken back until funding was in place....

Hopefully it wouldn't come to that....
