Walkinshaw loses in court (again)
THE Court of Appeal in London has rejected the appeal by the Arrows Formula 1 team against a ruling in February last year that the team should pay Pedro Diniz $700,000 in compensation after it failed to convince a court that Diniz broke his contract with Arrows at the end of 1998. The court ruled that was the team was "in breach of certain provisions of the contract and that the defendant (Diniz) was therefore entitled to terminate in the way he did".
Arrows appealed the decision but that appeal has now been rejected and the team have to pay up unless it wants to take the case to the final court of appeal in Britain, the House of Lords.
