Does Perez have the motor to compete tho. We know it's fast(the overall car package with aero) but his engine is old and made up of the salvaged and old part of the other engines. I'm kind of nervous that Perez will slowly fall back because of the lack of power in this track that looks like it's going to be power hungry.
The complete opposite happened! Perez shot to the back then slowly made his way to the front :o

It`s a shame we probably wont see him on the grid next year, experience counts for a lot in F1...

Don't intend this to be a dig but those days are long past. If any come it will be because of Papa Stroll's riches.

The only story I’ve heard is Vettel trying to poach Newey, romanticising him with a reunion story with the driver who has won Newey the most titles.

Would have been so much more complicated had he been successful. What would even happen to the Aston tie-up for example.

It will be a massive boost if they can get 'Cognizant' as title sponsor -

Aston Martin announced today they were concluding their WEC GT-pro class participation in an effort to support the F1 project. They of course made a similar announcement re their WEC Hypercar class plans months ago. Aston did state their would be a partnership with ProDrive to continue major support of their WEC GT-am class customers.

If he won the case then the Administrators would have to pay compensation. No court in the world can undo the deal and hand the company over to someone else. That ship has sailed

Prodrive builds and supports all existing Aston Martin GT cars anyway so that's business as usual.

Prodrive were also very involved with the Valkyrie although they were not going to run the WEC hypercar program, I believe that was going to be through a RBR linkup instead.
