The sale of a stake in the team to the Sahara Group is not the sale of an entire team. The Sahara Group have equal power within the team; they do not have a controlling stake, and therefore, the team has not been sold. Saward clearly dislikes Mallya, and has once again let his bias get in the way of his professional responsibilities.
He's hated him ever since he fired Liuzzi. He keeps saying he hates being lied to, and that's the reason for his article's tone, but really, everybody denies everything in F1. Remember Alonso to Ferrari, and how all parties denied that vehemently. But lo and behold, who is there for 2010? None other than Alonso! And what Mallya said was not a lie, more of a half-truth. If he can't handle these things, he's clearly in the wrong profession.
