In a few minutes from now there will be a press conference at The Grand Hotel in Delhi at which Vijay Mallya and Subrata Roy Sahara will make some kind of announcement. Mallya has denied reports that he has any plans to sell the Force India team, a statement which was treated with great circumspection in F1 circles.
If it turns out that Mallya is now announcing the sale of a minority of the shares or some such arrangement no-one is going to believe anything that he says as he will already have told a whopping great lie, insisting that the team is not for sale.
So why should we believe him if he says he is only selling a bit of it?
Good sources in India continue to suggest that a sale is going ahead and that the deal will roll over a two year period at the end of which Mallya will be out.
