Stoddart warns for Minardi's end

Post

Minardi team principal Paul Stoddart has warned that suzuka 2002 might be the last race for Minardi, if the teams put their threats into real actions. Minardi has received the travelling money that was earned by Prost GP last year, and teams like BAR, Jordan and McLaren doubt this money really belongs to Minardi, like Bernie says.
Stoddart reacted with:"I think Ron Dennis is behind all this. The case would lead us to the end, and he knows it. It's his right to do this, but in these hard times, I don't think Minardi deserves this. We've been to hell and back to compete professionally and we look like finishing ninth in the championship. We've done a damned good job on a budget that is one half of Ron's profits for last year." :?
