F1 » Lotus: Don’t judge us on results

sprulz: Honestly, what do they expect people to think? Two 8th place finishes aren't very good for a team that used to be consistently challenging for podiums. I feel great for NH. He really is sticking it to Lotus. I wonder when the time will come for the team to finally pull the plug. Another question is how long they'll put up with Maldonado. I won't be surprised if he's sacked to be fairly honest.
Well his dodgy state aid money is helping run the team (well his car according to his management), Total pays Grosjeans salary. The financial issues at Lotus have not been resolved but they cannot sack pastor unless they can figure out how to get money in through other streams. I have no doubt the team didn't want him and it was a management decision. Boullier saw this coming and bailed.

F1 » Newey calls for regulation re-think

107SS2009: Taz, after reports in May that TF was looking to sell Caterham for 250m£ he released a statement saying the group was not for sale but was looking for investment, reports are now saying the problem of TF’s empire is cash flow and that Air Asia is at the heart of this because it is sucking-in vast sums of cash with its order of new AIRBUS A320’s at 85m$ a piece.
Sunny, That sounds about right, Air Asia lost about 60 million USD in 2013.

F1 » Newey calls for regulation re-think

Interesting Now the latest speculation - flourishing on Twitter and put in print by Speed Week - is that Caterham's F1 project is to cease immediately and the green cars will be absent when the 2014 calendar resumes in Austria. Speed Week referred to "budget problems" as the main issue, adding that Caterham or Fernandes have yet to comment. Speed Week said there were rumours that Caterham could also pull out of the second-tier motorcycle GP acing category Moto2, having until now fielded a team called AirAsia Caterham. Rumours about the F1 team were already doing the rounds at the 2014 F1 GP in Canada over the (DATES) weekend where it was whispered that sale talks took place with the prospective new outfit - Forza Rossa led by former HRT and Force India chief Colin Kolles.
