Craig Pollock has denied any involvement in the purchase of the Arrows F1 team and believes another party stepped in at the last minute. When Arrows announced it was heading to Belgium this weekend with an American investor on the brink of signing a deal, it was speculated that Pollock, who is backed by Canadians, was involved.

"Absolutely not, it's nothing to do with me," Pollock told Reuters at the Belgian Grand Prix. "My interest in Arrows is officially finished. That's it." The former BAR boss said he was close to buying Arrows but: "Obviously not close enough. I'd say just at the very last minute somebody else came in."

Dieter Mateschitz, the Red Bull boss who is aiming to set up an American F1 team, was also linked with Arrows but he reportedly has no part in the recent deal. Enrique Bernoldi, Arrows' sole driver as of the moment, was present at the Spa circuit today but said he did not know who his team mate would be.
