For its part, Spyker took the bold step of asking financial services watchdog AFM to investigate because its stock price plummeted 12-percent after the latest round of newspaper reports, and the whole day of trading ended up being reversed. So maybe these are just rumors after all, but sometimes it's hard to fight against bad publicity. GP Update had reported about the companies initially asking Spyker to file bankruptcy. Dutch News reported about the bankruptcy reports, stock drop and ensuing investigation and reversal. Forbes reported about the reversal as well. GrandPrix.com is focusing on the fact that the F1 team seems to be caught in the middle of the whole thing, with conflicting reports that the production car division is tapping into the F1 budget. We'll keep an eye out for more info as it becomes available.
Thanks for all the tips, folks!
