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