...to make place for Robert Kubica I suppose.
Sad to see Spengler go especially as it was not his own decision.

Juntos is heading for a stewards' enquiry!

We are in January and Aston Martin do not have an engine.

I'm a bit concerned about the future but Kamelger has reiterated a few times that they will be on the grid, they just want to announce the plans when everything is sorted out. Maybe they're waiting until an engine supplier, all drivers and some possible sponsors are signed.
Otherwise, Aston's future looks pretty dim.

Well, I think Aston have started too many projects in the last two years and the DTM will be the one to suffer.
The new Vantage GTE and GT3 came, and they have factory backed projects even in the IMSA and Japan. Then they started the DTM project and building the hypercars, where rumours say, that will be four of those, which is a really big project on the scale of the brand. And to put the cherry on the cream, they announced their make series for Europe.

Ok, I know that the cars are run by different teams (Prodrive, AF, R Motorsport etc.) but having so many programs for a relatively small manufacturer like Aston Martin will be really hard to maintain, and to be competetive in the same time.

Do they have a chassis?

According to journalist Renť de Boer last year cars have been sold to China.
Who owns the design of those cars? R Motorsport or HWA?

Will they be in DTM this year? It all looks worse and worse. And di Resta said about Le Mans and DTM clash that this doesn't bother him as for now there's no drive in DTM...

On the other hand, Ferdinand Habsburg, who's doing millitary service in Austria, claims he'll be in the DTM in 2020.

I hope something is done about it. DTM has been through trying time before, although I canít remember the future being this uncertain. Maybe they need Super GTís help again?
