Thanks, working now.
To use my phone in the car I deleted all my German contacts, it's now Hans free.

Because apparently. Bernie's new stance is..... "I'd rather not lose the teams"

It is a UK soccer team (don't know if that is what you was asking)

Maybe the stance has changed because
A, the other teams can not provide 3 cars.

B, he is a jolly nice fellow and wants to help.

C, the new owners are desperate and will be in Bernice pocket if he helps them

D, CVC don't want the F1 name dragged through the mud more than it already has. So has evoked the dark one

According to Sky Sports they have a deadline of Saturday to get the cars packed and sent to Austin. If they don't meet this then the chances are that they will not race... :(

You have to feel for the staff at the Leafield base, extreme uncertainty at the moment.

Hmmm... Not sure then! I'm sure they'll probably have a few things at Leafield that they would want for Austin.

I think it would be better for Caterham to pull out now and save themselves further embarrassment; who would have thought that Manor/Virgin/Marussia would be the last team standing of the newbies? I really hate to see an iconic British name dragged through the mud like this on the most high profile motorsport stage.

:rofl: :rofl:

That is so spot on its not even funny. Its become so transparent and desperate you gotta cringe for Bernie sometimes. The car makers have no interest, sponsors have got much better ways of spending the money - even F1 itself is more attractive than the cars now for sponsors. I wonder if CVC will have the verve to just go ahead and stick their banners on the Caterhams. Paying Peter to pay Paul except Peter has a few siblings called Sauber, Marrusia, Force India and Lotus - if those dont get taken over they are gone by 2016

Rumours are that EJ is owning Caterham but this is the daily mail reporting so take it with a huge grain of salt. They tend to tell a load of :bs:
