  • Please Racing Point, take Stroll now.  I implore Lawrence to take his son post haste to his new team!  I think I could take solace in seeing Ocon move the opposite way but would be highly contented should it be Kubica who drives in the second Williams. 

    But please Lawrence, do the decent thing!

  • So Racing Point might finish behind Force India in the standings?  Or are Force India's points being removed from the standings?


    I guess they are, this is from an official press release from the FIA :-

    "Following a disciplinary investigation and prosecution by the FIA under Article 4 of the FIA’s Judicial and Disciplinary Rules, the Sahara Force India F1 Team has accepted its exclusion from the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship with immediate effect, due to its incapacity to comply with Article 8.2 of the Sporting Regulations moving forward, and forfeits all Constructors Championship points under Article 6.2."


    I think the old Sahara Force india team simply cannot guarantee to provide 2 cars to the grid for the remaining races, so failing in their obligation under article 8.2 (f).

    Love your idea in theory, but if Lance doesn't finish his season at Williams, does Lawrence still have to pay?

  • I have one big worry about this whole deal. What will happen to the team when Lance's F1 career finally does go down the drain?

  • Maybe Mazepin might be ready to be a F1 driver by then? Or, you know, someone with a longer-term plan...

    Maybe the same thing that happened to British American Racing... three owners and multiple championships?
