I think this is another sign of how things have changed now Bernie's gone. He was always very careful to stop anything looking like F1 to avoid confusion over the 'official' F1 brand and I think Force India sailed close to the wind/were very clever to get FI through the net. 'Force One' can easily be abbreviated to 'eff-one'... So, as alluded to above, F1 Mercedes seems to tick a number of boxes!

That was just Bernie being an old grump fart. Considering at the time, Renault, Toyota, Williams and Force India all had (and still do), the term 'F1' in their official team names.

Interesting titbit Ive just read on Autosport. The old Haas team from the '80s was also known as Formula One Race Car Engineering, or FORCE. When that stopped it was bought be Mr Ecclestone.

It's a shame it came to this, as he has done a brilliant job for the team that was going nowhere before he bought them. But they'll still have the same team they have now to keep them up there

certainly a flamboyant team owner but i do wonder exactly how much involvement or credit he deserves for the team's success?

that said, maybe staying out of the way and just supporting those that do the work is what makes him a great owner?

Following Perez and Ocon's desire to use the same piece of track at the same time in Belgium FI have issued a warning to their drivers that could end up out of
their car for a GP weekend if they try a repeat performance.

I think the team management is right to indulge in a bit of the hairdryer treatment - they can't afford to throw away points, especially if the ambition, somewhat grandiose, I admit, is to catch Red Bull for third. Also, Eau Rouge is not a place to be messing about, as Stefan Bellof would tell you if he could.

They need to be careful, they've been closely matched and been in involved too many incidents, so the team are right to lay down the law

They are both clearly hot heads. That is not going to get any better for them i'm afraid.

This is apparently why Perez was replaced at McLaren and why Ocon needs to be careful he doesn't damage his prospects by spouting off all the time. F1 teams don't like drivers like that. See one F. Alonso!
