Stoddart Slams Corporate Australia
Stoddart slams corporate Australia
Paul Stoddart has lashed out at corporate Australia for failing to help young countrymen make it in Formula One. The Melbourne-born owner of Minardi took a punt on Mark Webber in 2002, but indicated he would not be doing the same for hopeful trio Ryan Briscoe, Will Power and Will Davison.
''I can give them a test,'' said the 49-year-old, who - true to his word - ran the two Wills at Misano last week, but added: ''Sadly, I can't afford to run them without corporate backing.
''When Mark is world champion,'' Paul continued, ''there will be an awful lot of companies in Australia who wish like hell that they'd gotten involved.''
