The word in the F1 paddock at Magny-Cours is that there are problems with the Japanese sponsor Direxiv, a McLaren backer and the funding behind the DPR GP2 team. Direxiv was also linked to attempts to win the 12th Formula 1 franchise with a programme led by Jean Alesi. Now we hear that funding has dried up since it became clear that Prodrive had landed the last slot in F1 in 2008 and it may be that the Japanese firm has lost interest in its plans for the future. We hear that the lack of funding could start to cause problems with the DPR team unless a solution is quickly found.
