Re: Van der Garde vs Sauber

If they'll have to pay Sutil 15 million Euros as well, I see a bankruptcy in their future. Sadly for him, I think he didn't play the "game" quite as well as Giedo so he'll probably end up with quite a bit less. Sutil will be lucky to get half that. Is it confirmed that Sutil really is in ...

Re: Red Bull Threatens to quit F1

Actually, I think that the big F1 teams have been well over 600 for quite a while. If I remember correctly, Toyota was somewhere near 900, and Ferrari, Honda, & McLaren would not have been far behind. Very true and another thing to consider is how many people are directly or indirectly employed...
