Force India go into administration
#11
Yeah. Of course, in the not-so-recent past, Williams was one of the top teams - and they were pretty much the only ones willing to do something about it and sign on to a budget cap, if my memory serves me correctly -_-

Just makes it even sadder that they are where they are now...

And, at last, Force India are safe. They've been re-named "Racing Point Force India" for the rest of the year:

However, the team is technically a new entry (Lawrence Stroll bought Force India's equipment, but not their place on the grid) - so, they've had to forfeit all their points and prize money accumulated so far. That's got to hurt :( .

Okay, Force India's situation has improved somewhat. The other teams have at least agreed to let them keep their prize money; however, they still need to start from zero in the championship:

It's just weird that that's a thing to start with.
Like in NASCAR, if you don't buy the owner points you start from zero but the driver's retain their driver's points and the money isn't affected.

Yeah, I believe that both drivers are retaining their points; it's just the team's points that are being wiped. 

I don't expect the two drivers will necessarily retain their seats, though. It's almost certain that Lance Stroll is going to move to the team, which means either Sergio Pérez or Esteban Ocon will need to move over for him. The general agreement is that Ocon is the better driver; however, rumour has it that Pérez will keep his seat, because Lawrence Stroll is worried that his son will look bad if he has Ocon as a team-mate :facepalm:

I do hope that's just a stupid rumour, and not how Stroll is seriously considering running his team.
