Redundancy notices at Arrows
There are an increasing number of reports that the remaining staff at Arrows have now been laid off. This will mean that the team will have to reach some kind of settlement with them but only if money can be found. The chances of that happening are not good at the moment and the loyal crew who have waited in the hope that team boss Tom Walkinshaw would pull something out of the fire have been dashed.
Not surprisingly this has led to a certain amount of bad feeling that they have been abandoned after holding on for several months.
The implication is that the rescue plan that was coming will not now happen although this has yet to be officially confirmed.
