Wasn't expecting such a move. Specially just before the new regulations. Let's see what they are up to...
I think Otmar is more an organising/business sort of guy, so should not affect the car being ready, more prepping for next year.
Let's hope so, but Force India made some impressive moves under his tenure.

I agree, they're all like that... Wolfe, Horner, Seidl, etc they're not super technical people. They each have a technical hero that takes care of that.

Force India was under Bob Fernley ; a much capable leader.

That being the case, it must be safe to say Otmar was just the face to the team indeed. That also helps to understand why Aston Martin had some disappointing performances after the name change. Thanks for the insight.
