Yes, Mr Horner should know shouldn't he.
That was quick!
Mr Red Bull doesn't mess about does he?
Does that mean they'll get rid of Stoddy?

Mind you why would you keep him???????????????

I can't see any reason for them to keep Paul Stoddart to be honest, he's good for a laugh, but is just a nusiance....

At least Stoddy fought his corner, and didnt lie down and roll over when the Max-power dictated!

What will happen to the two dutchmen now? They had contracts with Minardi for next year - I suppose Red bull will be wanting to replace them with other drivers.

Curse Red Bull for all eternity! As a Minardi fan I guess I will now have to by a cheap substitute of their energy drinks for moral reasons!

I'm not talking about the fact that he does, but the way he's gone about it, and other things such as trying to run cars to the previous years rules do nothing for the credability of F1.....

It would have been good if Red Bull had of brought a team like Arden and taken them into F1. Cant see the logic in buying minardi??

I would suggest that the Max and Bernie show has done far more damage to F1 than little Minardi and Paul Stoddard could ever do. But I'm sure that argument has been done to death. All I'm saying is one of the most vocal critics of the current set up has gone and the wall of silence will drop over F1 again.

Because buying a team means that you don't start a new team, which is liable for something like a $250M deposit to the FIA before it's allowed to take to the track....

Yeah, so they buy a second team, which their not really going to invest heavliy in. What happens if A Red bull minardi is fighting a red bull red bull? What happens then? Effectively thereonly 9 teams in f1 now

At the end of the day, Stoddy's been very quiet since he lost the 2004 in 2005 regs argument, so it's not like anyone will notice....
