  1. Makes sense. What makes me laugh is "works teams". The defifinition of works team: A works team (sometimes factory team) is a sports team that is financed and run by a manufacturer or other business How GL's sponsored teams can be classed as this I do not know. The Enstone team is in fact the Genii Capital works team,
  2. That is correct Billy. You get Sky Sports F1 HD if you subscribe to the basic TV package, and have the HD pack. If you subscribe to Sky sports (and not HD) you will receive the channel in SD only. If you have the Sky Sports and HD packs, you will receive the channel in HD. The cheapest way to get Sky Sports F1 is to get the HD pack for £10.25, you will still be able to use your non-HD TV to watch SSF1, as the Sky+HD box has a scart socket on the back, but you will not see the picture in HD obviously.
  3. Tony is the only one who has his brands on his cars. Have a look at the Force India cars. Most of the brands on that car are owned by Vijay Mallya. Kingfisher, Royal Challengers, Whyte and Mackay Whisky and UB Group are also owned by Vijay. If you think about it, it makes sense do advertise your own brands on your cars. (Just a shame Group Lotus has to di this on someone else's cars) Tony brought the Lotus name back into F1, and now Group Lotus are taking it as if they have some sort of claim to it, onyl they have never ever raced of owned Lotus in F1. It may be bitter for Team Lotu
  4. If Genii don't stick around there will be no team. Genii are the ones paying the bills, sure pay drivers and sponsorship money will help, but GL could not afford to run the team themselves, that is why they only sponsored a team when thy created this whole charade.
  5. No I am entirely same. I am on the side of the guy who actually invested money that was his, and not belonging to the company that employs him. When I joined this forum. The team was Lotus, as it is for the next two races of this season. But I highly doubt that I will be posting here next year, as I am an F1 fan first and fore most. And next year there will not be a Lotus team in F1, just a Genii team, that used to Renault, claiming to be Lotus. Even if Group Lotus bought 100% of the old Renault team from Genii team, I might have supported them as Lotus, but since they are sponsoring a
  6. My support for Team Lotus, Caterham next year will not disappear. But the greedy b*stards over at Group Lotus will get their commupence when both thiey and the Genii GP team they sponsor run out of money. At least only one of the will go bankrupt. Bye bye Group Lotus, you only have your CEO TO BLAME! Long live Caterham F1.
  7. It is obviously which side you are one when you refer to Team Lotus as 1Malaysia and Renault as LRGP. Regardless of what the company behind the team is called, the team itself is Team Lotus. Although I have always been on Team Lotus (nee Lotus Racing) side, I have never really taken Joe Saward as a credible source, as he rarely has any evidence to back up his claims. Although a lot of what he has said has more truth in that than what has come from Dany. Yes he has been a supporter of Tony and co. from the start, because he obviously researched into the situation (just as I did) and saw that
  8. Right decision, you can't just drive into another car, when they are in your way. Lewis has been penalised for this this season so it is only right Massa did today. They were referring to the Renault teams as Lotus Renault, which they should as they don't include any other of the title sponsors, and they referred to Team Lotus as Team Lotus. Renault should just be referred to as Renault and Team Lotus as Team Lotus. It gets complicated when they are talking about the cars though, as the Renault is a Renault-Renault, and the Team Lotus car is a Lotus-Renault, the chassis being Lotus.
  9. lol at "another racing series" bit. should read "sponsoring a team in yet another racing series". When they actually sort there asses out and enter a team of their own and not someone else, ie the Genii GP F1 team.n remove every last bit of
  10. But the rumours are that he left Ferrari and Red Bull on bad terms, because he is supposed to have been the reason Ferrari became the sole engine supplier for the A1GP wihch cost them a lot of money and whilst at Red Bull, he was described as Mateschitz's right hand man, and it is claimed that it was Dany persuaded him to enter NASCAR, in which their first season didn't go smoothly, and also convinced Dietrich to not only create Red Bull Racing, but Scuderia Toro Rosso as well, which is costing more than planned, as they are no longer allowed to use the Red Bull cars and have to be a team in t
  11. He has paid for it, otherwise David Hunt would have been suing him for none payment and taking back the ownership of Team Lotus. I know there was reports that David had not been paid, but it did not say what this payment was for. The fact that David did not aid Tony in the court case makes it look more like Tony did not want to pay David for the help in the courts. If he had not paid for Team Lotus the courts would not have clarified that he is the owner of Team Lotus. The Lotus branding has been on the steering wheel for a while. There also used to be Lotus branding on the bodywork j
  12. There has never been any proof that Tony did not in fact own Team Lotus, and the fact that he, without the support of David Hunt, successfully won a court case concerning Team Lotus. If he didn't own it, the judge would not have clarified that he had the rights to use the name, but he would have said that it was David Hunt that had the right to, as he would still be the legal owner if Tony did not own it. It would only be the Lotus and F1 enthusiasts that would notice it. Most Renault F1 dropped their support when Lotus Cars launched their unsuccessful attempt to morph the teams identi
  13. NedaSay, IIRC correctly there is no intention of changing the name, even Dany has said this. If the team are struggling with funds now, they are certainly going to struggle if they change the name and forfeit the historic money. Overall not a bad performance from Team Lotus in Singapore. Not so good from Renault, but Boullier admitted that they would struggle because of the low speed corners. But he did expect them to struggle as much as they did.
