But the very latest reports are that Germany-based Romanian Kolles is actually getting involved at Caterham.
The major German daily Bild claims Kolles, 46, is becoming a motor sport consultant to the green-coloured team, as the struggling backmarker loses the support of its founder Tony Fernandes.
It is believed the Leafield-based team has been bought, including its reported EUR 20 million in debts, by a consortium of Swiss-based Arabs.
"Kolles is the man in the background, pulling the strings," Bild reported.
"He wants to give Caterham a polish and achieve at least tenth place in the world championship, getting money from Bernie Ecclestone's TV pot."
Bild said Caterham's new owners intend to 'remain in the background', even though the news should at least become official ahead of the British grand prix.
