Ericsson has got talent, but the problem, is he's seldom shown it in the past two seasons

other than a lot of speculation im not sure a definitive connection has ever been made publicly....well not that i have ever read anyways.

the new owners/backers do seem to rate him highly though.

Three wins in four years of GP2. Fine, flashes of speed, but I don't see the heather combusting. He's not going to graduate to a major team.

The personal backers of Mr Ericsson for many years are said to be the owners of the TetraPak global packaging empire.

The family office private equity behind Longbow Finance is said to have originated from the same source.

It's not quite that simple. It seems that there are a number of very wealthy individuals and successful corporations behind Longbow, and one of those investors happens to be Finn Rausing, one of the 3 grandchildren that inherited Tetra Pak from their father. He, like his siblings, has long lived in the UK, and his passion appears to be the gee-gees.

Another of the Longbow backers is the billionaire owner of the H & M clothing retailer.

The question is ... is Longbow here for the long haul or they want a quick sell?

You could argue that's the way of modern motorsports. There are plenty of drivers who are good enough for an F1 career who don't have a seat right now because there are pay drivers. I don't think it's fair to single Stroll out like that - this would simply be another way of buying a drive.

And the problem is there are only 20 seats in F1, so even more drivers are missing out on the chance they deserve. Hopefully more teams in the future can be added

At least in the early 90's more up and coming drivers got a chance to drive F1 even if 2/3 of the field were buckets of bolts cobbled together!
