The drivers are also not immune

Jobs will be lost after Caterham’s change of ownership, new team ‘advisor’ Colin Kolles has admitted.
“I prefer to have 200 safe jobs than 300 lost jobs,” the Romanian, who has appointed former Minardi driver Christijan Albers to front the team now owned by mystery Swiss-Middle Eastern owners, told Reuters.
Changes are afoot at Caterham, mere days after the team’s takeover by mysterious investors.
“We’re not even a week into this new chapter in the team’s life,” said new boss Christijan Albers, “but we’ve already seen just how hard everyone at the track and at the factory is prepared to work to push us forwards.”
Heads are being scratched in the F1 paddock, the day after the struggling Caterham team changed hands.
Malaysian aviation entrepreneur Tony Fernandes’ 100 per cent sale of the team was confirmed late on Wednesday, a media statement saying Caterham is now owned by “a consortium of Swiss and Middle Eastern investors”.
