Team Lotus boss Tony Fernandes has been awarded a CBE "for services to promote commercial and educational links" between the United Kingdom and Malaysia.

Fernandes is best known outside Formula 1 as head of AirAsia and founder of its sister airline AirAsia X.

His Tune Group also encompasses international businesses including hotels, telecommunications and finance.

"I'm grateful to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II for the honour," said Fernandes.

"It is a recognition of the hard work, determination and effort on the part of all my partners, colleagues and staff in AirAsia, Tune Group and Team Lotus.

"We have a terrific bunch of talented people working with us to make things happen in whatever venture we undertake. This is as much their award as it is mine."

Interesting timing, as he is a High Court defendant accused of plundering British IP.

Seems a nice guy, doing the right things, and an ambassador for his country (although any comments on here from South East Asia seem less complimentary)

Extremely odd timing as the honours lists are only published twice a year - new year and the queen's birthday.

From Direct.gov

Honours lists are published twice a year at New Year and in mid-June on the date of The Queen's official birthday. Anyone can receive an award if they reach the required standard of merit or service, and honours lists contain a wide variety of people from different backgrounds. Anyone can nominate someone for an award.

He isn't listed on the 2011 new year's list

Wonder if Queenie is a F1 fan, giving Fernandes the same honour that Chapman had would be quite a good way to pick her winner in the "son of Team Lotus" debate

This and the fact that Robert has been injured and is out of F1 for a few months at least might have an effect on the outcome of the march courtcase. This court case and the start of the season can not come fast enough

Although Kubica's accident is a blow to Group Lotus 2011 season plans it is highly unlikely to deflect them from the determination with which they will conduct their imminent court case. If it did, I would suggest that it is time to change the personnel involved in the case. Similarly the CBE does not materially effect the vigour with which they will persue their opposition in the court.

'Assasination' may not be on the cards but I'm sure 'Manslaughter' will figure in the tactics somewhere......

In theory there is no difference between theory and practice.<br />

In practice, there is!
