That is the claim of Spain's El Mundo Deportivo newspaper, in the wake of the departure of the Enstone based team's chief executive Patrick Louis.

Earlier this year, Ruhan bought 2 per cent of the team, and correspondent Raymond Blancafort said the British property developer is now stepping up further as the crucial 'Quantum' team buy-in continues to falter.
