I’m curious what people here think.
Andy Green has, to my knowledge, never worked in a top team. Team Silverstone, aka Jordan/Force India, however, has a history of punching heavier than their budget.
It’s one thing to be given more resources, with the new AM F1 factory, etc. But it’s another thing again to put those resources into the proper usage. I think with the new factory/facilities Aston will have the resources of a top team. But how will a tech team that has traditionally not had that level of resource — and correspondingly not produced top cars in the past — adapt to having to design top cars? What’s going to stop them, for lack of a smoother way of saying, become into another “Ferrari” where they definitely have the resources to compete at the front - but just underdeliver on their budget?
You think maybe the lack of resource has helped 'focus'? We can not afford that, that, or that, so lets make this as good as we can?
I can see lack of options in some cases removing distractions, and less layers of 'uppers' making decisions easier.
The one man one vote. I'm the man and this is whats happening could save a lot of money, and all working to the same goal can be a definite advantage, but this team has always had a strong 'front man'
