Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone has warned teams it would be ‘suicidal’ for them if the sport moved to News Corporation’s pay-per-view channels as part of a takeover deal. Amid signs of intense resistance from Ecclestone about the possibility of News Corporation buying into F1, the sport’s commercial rights holder says teams would lose huge sponsorship interest if coverage was no longer on mass market channels. “Murdoch hasn’t got anything really big to drive their TV audiences and Formula 1 would be good for that,” he explained in an interview with the official Formula 1 website

January 17th, 2011
Group Lotus is confident that its naming dispute with Team Lotus will be settled before it hits the courts later this year.

December 8th, 2010
Group Lotus CEO Dany Bahar has insisted he would have no problem with Tony Fernandes’ Team Lotus continuing with the same name in Formula 1 next year despite his company also entering the world championship with Renault. Today’s confirmation that Group Lotus will become a shareholder in and title sponsor of the Renault team next year, and Fernandes’ insistence that he owns the rights to the Team Lotus title and can therefore use it in F1, raises the prospect of two separate Lotus Renault teams appearing on the 2011 grid.
November 6th, 2010
Lotus Racing technical chief Mike Gascoyne says the future of his outfit is ‘very bright’ – whatever the team is called next season. As AUTOSPORT revealed yesterday, the Lotus naming situation has taken a fresh twist this weekend with the current Renault team now set to tie up with Lotus Cars for next season. That partnership would complicate the current Lotus team’s plans to be renamed Team Lotus – and could well see the outfit choose to abandon its legal bad to keep pursuing its Lotus plans.
