Massive corporations hungry for exposure and literally sweating money into hordes of golden buckets dotted around under their corporate HQs would nevertheless still rather put a match to the whole thing than see it plastered along the side of a wheezing, malnourished F1 car that used to win things.

“Oh,” went everyone.
