No As­ton F1, yet

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

A deal for the As­ton Martin name to fea­ture in F1 via a tie-up with the Force In­dia team has been put on hold. A deal to re­name the out­fit As­ton Martin Rac­ing is now un­likely to hap­pen un­til 2017. “It’s flat­ter­ing for a com­pany like As­ton to be talk­ing to Force In­dia, to want to part­ner with us and come into For­mula 1, but the story isn’t fi­nal there yet,” said the team’s chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer Ot­mar Szaf­nauer. “We’re still in com­mu­ni­ca­tion with them all the time, and def­i­nitely it [the deal] is not dead.”
