    Maybe...
    - if Giedo doesnt drive: contempt of court and arrest.
    - if Giedo drives in FP1: perhaps no arrest (yet).

    Who knows! Not me!

    Sorry for not posting updates earlier, too sleepy to keep track of everything. But here are some updates now.

    Adam Cooper @adamcooperF1 · 31m31 minutes ago
    Back at the Supreme Court, another 'start delayed' situation as it's put back to 10am, so about 35 minutes away

    Adam Cooper @adamcooperF1 · 6m6 minutes ago
    Melbourne Herald Sun paper has two-page headline 'Sauber tells court to shove ruling'. I'm told the judge has seen it...

    Adam Cooper @adamcooperF1 · 26s27 seconds ago
    '@GvanderGarde lawyer says matter has been settled... so it's all over, they have made a deal

    Adam Cooper @adamcooperF1 · 16s17 seconds ago
    The summons which could have led to the cars being seized etc has been withdrawn

    Kate Jones @Kate_Jones7 · 1m1 minute ago
    BREAKING: An agreement has been reached which means Giedo van der Garde's contempt action against @SauberF1Team has been withdrawn. #7news

    There's no word yet on the details of the agreement Sauber and van der Garde have reached. It means Sauber won't have its cars seized.

    Supreme Court of Vic @SCVSupremeCourt · 4m4 minutes ago
    Proceedings in @GvanderGarde v @SauberF1Team have been discontinued by agreement of parties, disposes whole proceeding.

    Adam Cooper @adamcooperF1 · 1m1 minute ago
    So now we await more news on the agreement, which apparently is still fluid - and could yet involve him driving the car at some stage

    Interesting, have Sauber gotten more prize-money payments in advance? Promised VdG more money if he can just wait on the prize-money.

    Will he drive from Malaysia and onwards.

    "It can go in a number of different ways," a member of VDG's legal team tells me. "That's what makes it interesting..."

    Supreme Court of Vic @SCVSupremeCourt · 3m3 minutes ago
    Court orders made earlier in week upholding international arbitration law still stands @GvanderGarde @SauberF1Team

    Adam Cooper @adamcooperF1 · 2m2 minutes ago
    Just to clarify the Swiss arbitration judgement, and the Aussie court order, still stand. The contempt of court action is dropped

    Giedo van der Garde 4 mins ·
    With respect to the interest of motorsport, and F1 in particular, I have decided to give up my legal rights to race this weekend at the Melbourne Grand Prix.

    As I am a passionate race driver this decision has been very difficult for me.

    However I also wish to respect the interest of the FIA, Sauber Motorsport, as well as Nasr and Ericsson.

    My management will continue talks with Sauber early next week to find a mutually acceptable solution for the current situation that has now arisen.

    I am confident such solution will be found and I will inform the media once done.

    Adam Cooper @adamcooperF1 · 10m10 minutes ago
    So now we know - as I said, it's still a fluid situation and really this is just a step to get through this weekend

    Adam Cooper @adamcooperF1 · 18m18 minutes ago
    A summary of where we are now plus @GvanderGarde's thoughts: http://adamcooperf1.com/2015/03/13/van-der-garde-and-sauber-reach-agreement-but-story-inot-over-yet/

    Adam Cooper @adamcooperF1 · 12m12 minutes ago
    From yesterday there was no desire from VDG camp to stop NAS and ERI racing, so no surprise at the way that worked out

    Adam Cooper @adamcooperF1 · 10m10 minutes ago
    The Supreme Court opened on Saturday just for this case. I am the last person in building and security man keen to go home!

    Adam Cooper @adamcooperF1 · 10m10 minutes ago
    Thanks to @SCVSupremeCourt for their support this week. Great people and very helpful. What an amazing saga - now back to my day job...

    Kate Jones @Kate_Jones7 · 21m21 minutes ago
    Will be interesting to see outcome of next week's talks between Sauber & van der Garde. Team still can't have 3 drivers for 2 cars. #F1
