thought i would give this a bump.

despite the problems facing it's owners (which seems to have really toned down or at least within F1 circles) the team is looking to secure 4th in the constructors and have allowed both their drivers a great level of freedom in order to explore other options.

Perez has of course chosen to stay on but they have now released the Hulk from his contract so that he is free to move on (although i dont know if Renault had to pay for the privilege).

the team and the factory have done a tremendous job with a smaller budget and less in terms of facilities compared to Williams...no small feat!

must say i am extremely impressed with how FI have conducted themselves this year (and for the last several years really).

say what you will about their owners but the team is all class imo!

Formulahistory should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
yes one of both. Wehrlein has more support from Mercedes, but Ocon knows Force India very well

I think if I had to pick, I'd go for Ocon, by the narrowest of margins. True, Wehrlein has scored a point, but I just feel he's lacked a certain spark.

I suppose the decision lies with Mercedes, to an extent.

So...what's the news on Vijay? It's all gone very quiet. Did the UK block the extradition? Must of done. There seems to have been a news block...

Then it would depend in part how much Mercedes are willing to reduce its engine price (if at all).

i am assuming they did get some money by letting the Hulk out of his contract early and Perez brings sponsorship with him...obviously more money/discounted engines help but 'bringing money/pay drivers' doesnt seem to be a requirement at FI.

looking at their past lineups, they genuinely take the best drivers available to them and then go on about competing within the teams existing funding level.

also, is there anything to suggest that they are behind in their payments to merc?

They certainly seem to have a pretty healthy sponsorship package (albeit quite dependent on booze).

One has to wonder how long that that can continue, though. The alcohol money came principally from companies that Mallya had a relationship with via his shareholding. Now that that shareholding has been appropriated by his creditors in lieu of some of his debts, there must be a strong possibility that the funding will end at the end of the contract, and not be renewed. And most of those sponsors were part of his Indian portfolio, and he can't go back there currently without being thrown into prison.
