Brilliant! A spammer as sponsor who is also a shoe magnate truly in the Andrea Moda spirit would be the only suitable sponsor for the F1 Rejects squad.
an excerpt from the entry list for Round 1 in 2010:
car no. - team - chassis - engine - driver
47 - AlanShoeTrader Formula One Rejects Racing Team - F1RJ 2007 D - Life W 12 - Perry McCarthy (GB)
48 - AlanShoeTrader Formula One Rejects Racing Team - F1RJ 2007 C - Sounds Of F1 - Yuji Ide (JAP)
note: the #48 car will be the previous year's chassis, because the spammer hasn't sold enough product yet to pay for constructing a 2nd new car; the team only has the engine lease for one engine, because there was only one engine available in the museum they got it from; therefore #48 car will be equipped with a system of speakers blasting out engine noises courtesy of the Sounds Of Formula 1 CD, (an idea courtesy of another forum user on another thread whose nickname unfortunately escaped me); Having signed a driver without a superlicense to drive the car without an engine isn't a problem because he wouldn't get far without an engine anyway.
Of course, our mechanics will "push-start" the #48 car (with said superlicense-less driver at the wheel) out of the garage onto pit road on Friday morning, with the CD playing from the airbox and exhausts. Of course, the car will stop in the middle of pit road, not too far from the garage. And of course, the team will receive a hefty fine for allowing a driver without a superlicense to take part in an event. Our team principal and our lawyer will then appeal the fine, only to learn that such an appeal is not allowed. Next, the Life W12 engine of the #47 car expires in a cloud of smoke at exactly the same spot where the #48 car came to a halt only minutes ago. Perry McCarthy and Yuji Ide are then being pulled before the stewards for blocking the pitlane. Ide says that his engine sounded really good today, which McCarthy cannot say of his engine. The recorded radio communcation tape of Ide with his engineer then reveal that he has lied to the stewards and that he knew all along that there was no engine in the car. Our team principal then speaks out and says it was indeed solely the engineer's decision to say to Yuji that he should turn up the "engine" a little louder. This will go down in history as the F1 Rejects Liegate scandal, whereupon the engineer is sacked on short notice by the team principal, and presented with a bill to pay all by himself the fine for running a driver without a superlicense. A devastated Ide then turns to McCarthy for moral advice, whereupon McCarthy replies something like "It's better to be sent out into the pitlane with no engine than to be sent into Eau Rouge with no steering".
After this episode, the team is banned from F1 for bringing the sport into disrepute. On the morning of race day, an interview with the team principals appears that reveals the whole team has just been a scam to bring the sport into disrepute on purpose. Upon reading the interview, the sponsor Shoe Trader Alan sends an email to the team principals, threatening to sue them for breach of contract, including an attachment that was meant to hijack their server on behalf of some hackers from India, but luckily, the malware was detected in time, even though the email made it through the spam filter.
A year later, Max is furious when he finds out that the only other candidate running in the election for FIA president, besides himself, is Enoch of F1 Rejects Racing.
"I don't think we should be used to finance (the manufacturers') R&D because they will produce that engine anyway" said Monisha Kaltenborn.
"You will never see a Mercedes using a Ferrari engine or the other way round."
