According to an inside source (Bruce Mclaren's small intestine), Mclaren bosses blew literally billions of pounds betting on ferret racing in the early hours of this morning. Due to the overwhelming debt that the company bosses have landed themselves in, owing approximately £2093billion to animal sports coordinator 'Rodent Sports & Pussy Cat Archery' (RSPCA), the company has had to declare bankruptcy.

However, in a surprise move, toy manufacturer LEGO made an irrefutable offer to Bruce Mclaren; apparently a sum of around £1350billion was given to Mclaren in exchange for total ownership of his company.

Sports forecasters are stumped as to predicting how this will effect F1 racing but early reports suggest Lego are insisting that all former Mclaren drivers paint their skin yellow and have their hands replaced with strange two-part claw pieces.

Lewis Hamilton: "I'm not too keen on the idea of losing my hands. The other drivers and I have grown accustomed to using the opposable thumb and it seems that if we were to go through with the biological transformation that LEGO are proposing, then it would be like kicking evolution in the testicles."
