  • Andy B: Hi Wiz, I have tried to make a donation using my UK bank account but PayPal will not accept the card as I live in NZ and have a UK card? This is not your problem but is there a way I can just pay directly with a Visa card?

  • Wizzo: GPW will be down from approximately 13:30 tomorrow until the migration to the new server is complete. Once the site is "live" on the new server it could take another 24-48 hours to become accessible to all users.

Racing Point to Change Names (Again)
« on: February 13, 2020, 02:42:47 PM »
Racing Point (formerly Force India, Spyker, Midland and Jordan) will morph into yet another identity for the 2021 season. A very famous one.

Welcome Aston Martin F1 Team.

Aston didn't buy the team. Lance's dad bought a chunk of Aston and will become it's executive chairman.

“It’s significant news for Aston Martin and for Formula 1 itself,” team principal Otmar Szafnauer said. “As one of the most iconic sports car brands in the world, Aston Martin needed a presence on the F1 grid and this solution delivers a fully-fledged works Aston Martin F1 Team from 2021 onwards. It’s news that will excite fans around the world and will shine a spotlight on a brand that is widely regarded as Britain’s finest luxury sports car manufacturer."

No word yet if the deal includes having Lance replace Daniel Craig as 007.

I never quite liked the 'Racing Point' name.  For midfielders, makes me think 'what's the point in racing'.

It will be interesting to see if Aston Martin can bring a strong constructor presence, or if they'll just fade away as a Stroll vanity project.
