    I'm not a finance person; just ask the wife; but that doesn't look particularly good and somewhat precarious?

    Be interesting to know what Papa Stroll's holding/ relationship is with both companies. He doesn't come across as the type of chap who would prop up a company at his own personal expense!

    Quite funny that the F1 team keep screwing up the other driver in the races to keep baby stroll from looking even worse. They're throwing constructor points down the drain in an effort to keep Perez and Hulk from embarrassing them. Such is their effort for self-sabotage they even slipped two places in the constructors yesterday, pure comedy.

    The over-capacity they have is very interesting, I had no idea. That's a lot of money that's been spent, for something not used

    Completely agree. Is the excess capacity all due to expected demand for the DBX do you know, or is it across the board and they're not selling the volumes they hoped?

    Don't know as they didn't give a breakdown but it has to be across the board given the magnitude.
