I can really see Stroll fired up in 2019.
I confess, I'm not a fan per se, but if he can make a good fist of this then fair play to him.

That is exactly where I sit on this as well. Not a fan of Stroll particularly, but not a hater... I do have a fondness to Force India or whatever name they use, so if Stroll can match Perez then I might have to change my opinion. I just hope it does not become a team focused on one driver.

It looks like the court has ruled in favour of extraditing Mallya. Still has to go to the Home Secretary though. His extradition now would no longer risk skilled British jobs.

One also has to take into account that it is alleged that he (and possibly Roy) used monies from the sale of Kingfisher Beer (the company) to prop up Force India, when in fact that money should have been paid to his (their) creditors in India. That is the crime that the Indian authorities have cited as the reason for the extradition.

If the above is true, then it is highly likely that Force India would have folded or been sold off a while ago if the Indian creditors had been paid the monies owed to them.

Not that it concerns what was Force India any more, or hopefully it shouldn't, Mallya's bank creditors commenced court proceedings on Friday to bankrupt him in an attempt to seize his worldwide assets.

In a separate move, creditors have moved against his son who has defaulted on a multi-million loan taken out by Mallya using his yacht, Force India, as security. Title to the yacht was transferred to his son.

Reading up on this Gordon, it may be a jail cell with his mate Roy.!!

I think now his money/credit line must be running a bit low. his mates are looking the other way...

US sportcar/prototype racing has a history of questionable characters funding their racing habit in questionable ways.
