Row: Tony Fernandes' Caterham-Renault team could face a fine or expulsion
Formula One is in the grip of yet another Spygate scandal which could see QPR owner Tony Fernandes’ Caterham team hit with a huge fine or even booted out of the sport.
Force India are furious that, in their opinion, Caterham copied intellectual property relating to the aerodynamic design of their 2010 car.
Rival team Marussia are concerned that Caterham gained an unfair advantage when they both entered Formula One that year.
The High Court ruled last week that Aerolab — a design company used first by Force India and subsequently Caterham — must pay Force India £21,000 for misuse of confidential information as employees passed on some of their aerodynamic designs to Caterham.
Force India and Marussia believe the ruling indicates a basic infringement of the FIA’s International Sporting Code — the same article under which McLaren were charged and found guilty in the Spygate saga of 2007.- DailyMail UK
This latest report has certainly put Malaysia on the world map again, courtesy of a billionaire tycoon who is known for his 'out-of-the-box' businesses and corporate maneuvers.
I'm sure Wangsa Maju MP Wee Choo Keong and millions of other Malaysians would be more than interested to know more about this latest scandal, and much more about the 'out-of-the-box' businessman and his billion dollar deals in the country.
Many are particularly interested in the AIRBUS story.
Khazanah's Azman Mokhtar and gang would certainly be delighted that their 'sailang' business counterpart appears to have gone international with his 'sailang' business deals.
If they want to, Khazanah could save MAS from being sailang-ed again.
MAS staff are holding on to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak promise to 'take a second look' at the MAS-AirAsia share 'suap' deal.
We just hope that those from Khazanah don't continue to mislead the Prime Minister on the real, present and future danger of MAS being sailang-ed!!!
p/s Ask Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar what 'sailang' means.
