'One potential problem is that FIA rules mean that a team cannot change its name mid-season. In September 2006, when Spyker bought the Midland F1 Racing team, it used the Spyker name as a headline sponsor: "Spyker MF1 Racing". This year it was allowed to change the team's name to "Spyker Formula 1" but it may have to retain the Spyker name.

Why is there an issue with teams changing their name mid-season, recently there was the business with Force India becoming Racing Point? Is it to do with the allocation of constructor's championship money?

In simple terms, yes.

It's about the Concorde Agreement that each team (constructor) individually signs up to, and the fact that a portion of the money is based on the previous 3 years' results, and the money is paid in monthly instalments starting in around April/May of the following year. So, in the case you refer to, the points awarded in the previous year were awarded to Force India, not Racing Point which possibly didn't even exist when the points were awarded.

It was brought about to prevent phoenix companies, transferring assets from a company that you let go bankrupt to a new trading entity which then carries on like nothing happened. The practice creates a load of "disappointed" creditors and ex employees and brings the name of F1 into disrepute.

I think Bernie had tired of paying off the creditors of bankrupt F1 teams that were still on the grid with a new name and claiming the previous year's championship money.

djr81 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
A nearly but not quite weekend for Williams in Austria. Russell nearly made it into Q2 and Latifi nearly scored a point, albeit the last of the runners.

Still, with the reports of them being limited for cooling it is a big improvement on the last couple of years. Dont think they will be on the podium any time soon but fingers crossed it signifies the start of a renaissance of sorts.

The shame for Williams is that is the type of weekend when they should have scored/lucked into some points and didn't, made worse by the fact that Haas apart, all their immediate tail of the mid-field rivals scored points.

Latifi was slow and despite George's efforts, they still look a way of scoring points on merit and you would imagine the other teams will et on top of early reliability issues.

This weekends re-run of the race will be interesting.

It was gutting for Russell. If it hadn't been for that mechanical failure, he almost certainly would have been in the points. Then again we would have had a very different race if he hadn't broke down and caused a SC

They should have scored a point in that race, with so few runners actually not having problems, but they were still well behind everyone but Hass and the what ever the alfa romeo team is called this year.

P12 for Russell is a damn good result. Only a tenth and a bit from Q3. Will be interesting to see what happens tomorrow in the dry.

Indeed, Leclerc dropped to 14th behind Russell(up to 11th) Stroll and Kvyat, who Leclerc had impeded to get the penalty.

I dont think anyone has mentioned it, but having Russell push the car up the grid off the back row should be showing potential purchasers/investors that Williams has more value than it did this time last year. So kudos to them for moving forward. I hope the teams does well today.
