Rival pointing fingers: Clunky mess to Grosjean

the Suitors to fourth place in the constructor-the WORLD behind the three sovereign topteams in Formula 1 are in the queue.

McLaren, Renault and Haas all have a declared ambition to peak midterfeltet, Alpha Tauri settle to aim for fifth place, while the Racing Point also joined in the fight to be 'best of the rest', as the team as the last of the ten presented his 2020-racer.

team manager Otmar Szafnauer could have done it more elegantly, when he on top of a strong end of 2019, for Formula 1's pink team foresaw champagne and thus podieplaceringer to both Sergio Perez and Lance Stroll in the upcoming season.

- We aim to score more points than our rivals, and to be able to achieve our goal requires that we get both drivers in the points for each race. We have done that before it; or, at least, had the potential to have both in the points for each race. Sometimes on the first place don't you know what happens - Grosjean is still with, you never know, if he runs into you, said Szafnauer at the press conference, according to, among other things F1.com.

Trying to be funny is at best clumsy, and there is not much knowledge about Formula 1 to know that the Racing Points-the boss should take a long look in the mirror.

The French Haas-running was indeed dubbed a 'first-lap simpleton' by Mark Webber back in 2012 and in 2018 the sake of the game crash on the first lap of the Spanish Grand Prix, but otherwise, is there a lot of water under the bridge since then.

If you look at the Szafnauers own team, he must first and foremost have to keep track of teamejerens son Lance Stroll, who still have not convinced anyone that he would be in Formula 1, if it were not for the father's money. Franskcanadieren in no way a spotless history, what clashes with the drivers concerned.

When the Racing Points named Force India, was the team's drivers in addition, some of the most dangerous in the field. In 2018 was the team's former drivers Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocoña involved in a spectacular collision in Baku, Spa and Singapore. Both are to find on the 2020 grid.

He can easily be accused of to train hammer throw in a greenhouse ...

But otherwise, do you understand Szafnauers optimism. Racing Points 2019-season was compromised by the development of the car started, while the former Force India were about to go bankrupt. Since the new owners led by billionaire Lawrence Stroll pumped money into new facilities for the team, as have the growing pains now with 465 employees in Silverstone.

With a limited budget, the performance of Force India to be four in the constructor-the WORLD cup in both 2016 and 2017. The team is both effective and saves on the pundits.

Kørersammensætningen can, however, be the challenge in Szafnauers ambitions. A glance at last season explains why. After the summer break last year where the Racing Points flourished on top of a major upgrade, scored Sergio Perez 39 points. Holdejerens son Lance Stroll was rather simply listed for the three in the same period of nine grandprixer.

And it was not the Romain Grosjeans fault, that it was not for several ...
