Bit off topic but I've only even considered the pound for pound expression as something you use when comparing different weight classes in fighting sports (pound=weight), but it actually works well also in this context (pound=money).

Now that I think of it what's the rationale of having the same unit for both weight and currency? :lol:

Quick rip from Wikipedia:

The term originated in the Frankish Empire as a result of Charlemagne's currency reform ("pound" from Latin pondus, a unity of weight) and was subsequently taken to Great Britain as the value of a pound (weight) of silver.

Reading reports which are claiming that Force India is struggling to survive. Apparently, Liberty has given a loan to Force India. In return, it's assumed that Vijay Mallya stepped down from his role. There are also 5 potential buyers lining up to buy Force India which includes Rich Energy, Mercedes & Austrian sponsor company BWT.

Even though the struggling part sounds alarming, I'm sure someone with heavy pockets will buy this efficient team which even a shoestring budget can make good cars!

I heard that Michael Andretti was also sniffing around the team in Canada.

Yeah. Damn sure this team won't be called Force India next year as I'm close to being sure it's going to be bought. This team is a dream team to own. A better budget will surely produce a great car from the talented bunch at Silverstone.

If Andretti buys it, I’ll have a new favourite team. Love that guy

This team has proven to get success with a limited budget. A new owner would invest more finance into the team & the skilled guys at Silverstone would deliver a far greater car. Apart from Andretti, BWT & Mercedes are potential buyers.

The Austrian Grand Prix marks the 200th race for this team. I doubt this year they'll be able to beat Renault for 4th. I hope someone arrives in a shining armor & buys this team. This team is too good to go down to the gallows. Hope Mercedes makes this their B-Team.
