F1 » Bahar pleads for Team Lotus to be allowed to 'rest in peace'


(continuation from previous post) "This will be my last statement on the matter and hopefully some common sense will arise. "All we wanted to do was bring Lotus back to racing and build a good relationship with Group Lotus and I think that would have been the best solution for everyone. "We never wanted to bring these matters up in public, and when it (Lotus sponsoring Renault) came out we kept a very low profile about it. "But there have been so many accusations that we have had to defend our position. If Group Lotus value the brand then we should try and find a solution to this. We are open to that."

F1 » Bahar pleads for Team Lotus to be allowed to 'rest in peace'


I shall quote Tony Fernandes (before a few of you start bashing him): "There was no such thing as an offer," Fernandes told AUTOSPORT about Bahar's claims. "There is an understanding that Lotus's involvement with Renault is worth £20 million, which would therefore mean that I was seeking £60 million - which is a complete fabrication. "We never got past an initial dinner meeting. Dany Bahar and Riad Asmat met and that was it. No offers were ever exchanged. "We were very open to equity sharing, working together and other combinations. We wanted it to work for the good of the Lotus brand - and it made sense to combine. "I can state categorically that there is no way we were three times more expensive." "How Eric Boullier can say we have fooled fans - I think that is an insult to fans. Fans will make up their own mind. If we are not up to the mark they will not give us any support. You cannot fool anyone. (continued on next post)
