What’s the big­gest dif­fer­ence be­tween rac­ing for Manor and for Force In­dia?

F1 Racing - - COVER STORY - Steve Wrench, UK

Manor were a great team who had a lot of mo­ti­va­tion and were al­ways push­ing for re­sults, and I have to say that Force In­dia are the same in that re­gard. The big­gest dif­fer­ence is that Force In­dia have a lot more peo­ple work­ing for them, and there is more spon­sor and PR ac­tiv­ity to do now. F1R: Are you sad to see Manor go? EO: Yes, very sad. They def­i­nitely de­served to have a place here. They were a very com­pet­i­tive team with great peo­ple, and I think that what we achieved at the end of the year – even with Pas­cal Wehrlein and the point he scored – it wasn’t just luck. I nished P13 in Abu Dhabi in the dry, so the car was com­pet­i­tive at the end.

F1R: Did you know they are auc­tion­ing off their as­sets? Is there any­thing you might bid for, like a steer­ing wheel?

EO: I think the steer­ing wheel might be gone al­ready. That’s the best thing. I wish I could have my steer­ing wheel, that would be awe­some. I had a bike as well, with my name on it – I don’t know if it is still there.
