    Does that mean Red Bull would loose the Aston Martin sponsorship and TH could possibly move to Racing point as it's own now.
    Would TH follow Aston or stay aligned to Red Bull? :unsure:

    What was news to me from reading that Article is that Aston Martin has been bankrupt 7 times before !!!

    TH should remain on a top tier team like RedBull. Following AM to Racing Point / Force India might not be a good marketing deal for TH just because it’s being rebranded as Aston Martin. Just my 2 cents ;)

    Big news- and I guess better to have Aston Martin in F1 rather than a team called Racing Point.

    I do worry about Mercedes. I know there's been some speculation that the team will be wound-down or sold and some senior management have come out and denied this...but I can't help but feel there will be some deal done to sell the team and keep supplying engines (they have a contract with McLaren through to 2024). Until Hamilton signs, the question marks will stick around..

    I don’t know why suddenly there are speculations that Mercedes will leave F1 and relegate to just an engine supplier again? Too tired seating on top? 6 consecutive Manufacturers Title is already written legendary for the books.

    It seems that Mercedes-AMG is committed at least for 5 more years in Formula 1 :)

    I can't imagine anyone buying an Aston, who hasn't had a Bond complex to a greater or lesser degree. The fact that they don't have the same profit margins as Omega, is what must have made all the difference! :)

    And the relative affordability.
