We all know how bad is the top speed of this car but if you take a look to this information, its clear to me that they choosed a strong set-up for the corners.

Yes Merc chose to set up the car that way. The top speed cars have Merc PU's and I'm sure Nico's car could have been on top of the speed chart should they have chosen to. We know Honda's lack of top speed. They know of the cause of this. That is why it is encouraging to me.

It's not very meaningful, and even more misleading because of the DRS effects (which is presumably why Massa ended up so much quicker than Bottas).

You should look at qualifying because there everyone is using DRS. Or the sector maximum speeds, because these aren't necessarily measured in a DRS zone.

I wonder if they are thinking about a public floatation of some of the shares? I mean it's an interesting prospect as a private investor and a different beast from Williams Grand Prix Holdings given the strong performance of the McLaren automobile business.

Given the current growth / standing of the automobile side, it would be a good time to try such a thing.

Came across following article on autosport

http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/122096
Autosport revealed at the end of October that the Aston Martin name was likely to return to F1, after a two-year run in 1959-60.
Talks have continued in recent weeks about the details, which will likely see the team renamed to Aston Martin Racing, and run with a blue and gold livery as part of a link with sponsor Johnnie Walker.
Did not read anywhere before that Johnnie Walker will be their sponsor. So basically after Tag Heuer jumping to Red Bull, its Johnnie Walker which has moved to Force India or Aston Martin Racing
