I don’t know about you, but I am a little tired of reading about Formula 1 people being in court. Bernie Ecclestone seems to be keeping various legal firms in business with all his adventures of late.

And in recent weeks we have seen sometime F1 manager Anthony Hamilton’s lawyers slugging it out with legal representatives of his former client Paul di Resta.

It is all rather too messy for the sport and some might argue that it gives the impression that Formula 1 folk are always in and out of court. The problem with this is two fold: firstly, it creates the wrong impression, which tends to worry potential sponsors.

There was a time when the F1 teams were smaller and operating out of telephone boxes, but it is definitely not the case these days if one goes around and looks at the size of the factories and the corporate nature of most of these impressive organisations.
