    You mean to say I got my arse out of the cable car across the Thames to moon Brogan on my once in a decade visit to London only to say he's the other sodding of the Atlantic?

    I suspect that is the simple explanation, all F1 teams have separate engineering or research divisions that though are loosely connected to the actual F1team ( owned by the holding company) these company's profits go to the holding company. I suspect the rebate is paid to these companies, the divisions are all separate companies in that should one fail the others are unaffected, though should Mercedes fail the holding company Daimler may not be able to or want to continue with the F team.
    The article seems more red top tabloid without any real explanation, perhaps just an low key dig for the British GP to get government sponsorship.

    The payments will be small fry compared to someone like Phizer.
    It's actually a very good policy that encourages research and development in every industry - ensuring we actually invest in the future (something the UK hasn't always been very good at).

    Never mind FB the Bullseye target could be a lot worse. It’s just your knee, you have another one.

    So glad we sold our apartment in London.

    Apparently prices have crashed due to some idiot hanging their arse out of the cable car.
