If nothing else, hopefully he'll get a nice warm feeling from actually getting paid his agreed stipend with this team.

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
This team looks on an upward trajectory, lets hope this is the case

All three things are smart moves IMHO.

Clearly the team is getting itself sorted under the new ownership structure and rather than sticking with everything said at the launch, are discarding bits that are unlikely to deliver or which complicate life. At the same time they're improving their situation and knocking off a job list.

A bit of continuity (if it can be delivered) will help this team no end.

So McConville might be seen driving again (how many un-retirements would that be for him now?)

Sure, but why launch with them the other way?

Probably because they knew once they'd agreed the deals, information would leak, so the launch was done.

Then they got into the detail of how they wanted to run the team and the capabilities in place.

If they'd done it the other way round, they'd only be launching about now, probably after leaks and various people rolling their eyes and saying "well we all KNEW that already".

It also sounds to me like Mr Munday is taking more direct control of what the team does - maybe more that was originally envisioned?

There have been several AA articles recently about Zagame racing, which included Mr Crawford and Mr McConville, and Mr Munday as financier/sponsor of some of that activity.

Then we see it all move, virtually unchanged, from Zagame to 23RED.

Just seems odd is all..

Seems like it.

Its not like Mr McConville wasn’t aware of the time commitment of the role thoygh, as a full time pilot for years.

A driver having any real idea about what is involved with running the team they drive for?

There'd be very few who actually know although it's POSSIBLE that Mr McConville may be one of them.
