    Wasn't it always thus? All the teams are interested in is themselves, whoever came up with the idea of them having any involvement in the management of the sport needs their bumps felt.

    Ross Brawn will do all be can to save Force India

    Ross Brawn: Formula 1 will do all it can to save Force India

    Which probably means buy them for a quid and then sell them for millions the year after.

    Fixed that for you. Assuming that he sets the rules, of course.

    Suggestion is a Mercedes B team will be formed from Force India 's situation . Force India have always fought for the smaller team's corner and the balance of power will shift to Merc possibly which needs to be avoided at all costs

    Incidentally the team will stop car development until a buyer is found which means that the team will fall backwards in the midfield battle.. so Mclaren could overtake them as well

    So that’s Lance Stroll driving for Force Canada in 2019 then.

    Stroll-backed consortium saves Force India F1 team

    Confirmation on Autosport. I expect a name change and a similar deal with Merc that Haas have with Ferrari.

    Well if its a Mercedes B team Lawrence Stroll wants lets see how he copes if either Ocon or Russell wipes the floor off Lance Stroll

    Ok, so who would Lance want as a team mate at TFKAFI (team formerly know as Force India)? Certainly not Ocon, maybe they should try to get Vandoorn, he's kinda slow and available

    Ha. Put Vandorne in a decent car where he is not 2nd class citizen and we'll see how slow he is.

    Well, the latest is a strategical move on how to become No. 1 driver. Just have papa to buy you a team, and lobby at a dinner table at home. Success rate could be very high. I feel sorry for his teammate already.

    Can they afford to change the name though? Doesn't that then lose them any prize money they've already won this year? Or is that only the case if they change it between seasons? I don't know the exact rules on that, but I do know it can affect what prize money they get depending in when they do it and if the other teams agree to it or something. Anyone know the exact rules on this?

    Izumi I agree, I feel sorry for his team mate already as well. I am guessing it's likely to be Perez?

    I think the name can (and probably will) be changed only for 2019.
    Food for thought - when drivers of caliber Ocon and Perez are might end up without a drive in 2019, then something is seriously wrong. Haas might through a life line, maybe RBR...

    So happy for Lance and Force India. Great to see them both in a great position for the future.

    There are concerns that Force India might be a Mercedes B team or junior team swinging the shift from the private and smaller teams in favour of the big 3 in the power struggle

    Apparently Ocon is a friend of Lance Stroll plus he is a Mercedes backed driver so you would think Toto would put his influence there because he also wants to make sure George Russell is in F1 next season

    So to me Perez has to leave Force India . His opportunities to drive for a top team has gone and his sponsorship connections would mean he would be a good fit for Haas or Sauber
