Force India planning new EUR 80m factory

Force India really is in good hands now!

Saturday 20 Oktober at 08:35 : Oct.20 (GMM) Force India is planning to build a new factory.

That is the claim of Auto Motor und Sport, revealing that new team owner and billionaire Lawrence Stroll is prepared to spend EUR 80 million on the project.

A location will be found by the end of October, and the factory will be ready to be moved into by 2021.

"We will then have all our employees under one roof," said team boss Otmar Szafnauer in Austin.

Currently, some engineers are located 10 kilometres from the Silverstone factory in Brackley, where the wind tunnel is located.

Stroll's plan is also to boost the workforce from 410 to 550 people, Szafnauer said.

Toto: "Was machts du hier?"

"What are you doing here?"

Holy shit; either this is acted very well or this guy seriously fucked up.

When your dad walks in whilst you're beating your meat

It's obviously an acted-out scene. Paul Ripke is always doing this kind of stuff on Mercedes' Instagram.

lol no, it’s bad acting

How can I tell? I’m German, and that’s school levels of bad

Just for the benefit of doubt, we've not shopped this. VB whipped out this spicy meme during FP2 and showed the guys.

That's good it shows that VB isn't letting it put a downer on him

Good to see him joking with it. He taked the situation as a true gentleman and a great team player. It equally shows the positive strenght that is lived in the team and that is something that earns championships too.

"It's official. Game over. 3-place grid penalty for Sebastian Vettel after failing to slow down sufficiently under red flags in FP1. Mercedes can begin their Hamilton championship party preparations for Sunday."

It's crazy how quickly things seemed to fall apart after the summer break.

Vettel's working hard to take the blame away from the Ferrari pit wall for this championship.

After Spa everything went to shit for Ferrari. Driver mistakes, the car slowly becoming inferior to the Mercedes, even worse strategy calls... Another year to forget for Ferrari and the Tifosi

Props to them for giving the penalty despite it affecting the championship fight. This is as it should be.

While FP2 was quiet, my wife guessed the names of the driver's based on the first three letters of their surnames as per the timing, here's what we ended up with:

lewis is trolling us at this point

Hamilton needs to adjust the AI difficulty.

For HAM to come out and just do 1 timed lap and do that is crazy. I wonder how much faster he would have gone if he’d had a couple of runs?

It says 3 laps but that was only 1 real lap due to the out and in laps LOL

A happy Lewis is a dangerous Lewis.

Pack it up boys

Him being so relaxed and "jokey" scares me a little bit.

You're all fucked.

You know that, right?

Yeah, which means he is a good place mentally, which implies that he is definitely gonna dominate this weekend.

I thought Lando was a short guy, surprised Nando is up there too is even shorter.

Lando had a ridiculous growth spurt. Late bloomer I guess. Nando is slouching

Imagine this guy doing it in Ferrari's garage. He would be fired on the spot.
