Virgin - Brawn GP - Nick Fry Interviewed by Autosport

Nick Fry talked to Autosport with regards to the phenomenal start Brawn have had to the season and amongst other things talked about the Virgin/Branson interest:

Q. The car is still predominantly white, and Richard Branson will decide in the next few weeks about the level of his involvement in taking that deal forwards. What is the commercial situation at this team?

NF: The commercial state is pretty healthy. We would not have kicked this off if we did not think it had a good chance. We have certainly got the money for this year, and we are well into next year now. Richard's contribution to the coffers is much appreciated, but Ross and I strongly believe and it has been proven by the amount of contacts we have had, that if you have a good car, then the Brawn GP logo on the airbox is effectively a for sale sign to buy this space. People want to be associated with success, and what this is all about is that it is a good news story.
In times that are pretty hard for everyone, we've got something here which clearly is a bit of a fairytale but is also highly attractive to potential sponsors. So I don't think this is going to be easy, but we will work with Richard and see if we can persuade him to up his game in terms of Virgin's support of the car – which he seems happy to consider. I think Virgin is a very attractive brand, which will attract other people to come on board. I am very optimistic at the moment.

About Me

I have been an F1 fan from a very early age, however in my very early years I didn't really support a team just loved the racing. Since the BAR years I have been supporting this team through it's highs and lows. I'm confident under Ross Brawn's control the team will go from strength to strength and hopefully Jenson and Rubens can find themselves in a competitive car once more.
