One interesting point he's been writing about for a few months is Force India's financial situation and I believe he is correct for us to keep an eye on it this year.
Finance seems to become bigger issue for teams every year. No-one knows where Force India's money is coming if Mallya goes broken. How much Sahara is willing to invest. There are maybe 5 or 6 teams with solid financial ground. I don't think Lotus is making any money to Genii. How long will Cenii continue in F1. Looks like the only country in the world, where there is no shortage of money is China. So when will we see Chinese car manufacturers in F1. They probably could easily buy several teams. How about if there were names like BYD, Lifan, Chang'an (Chana), Geely, Chery, Hafei, Jianghuai (JAC), Great Wall and Roewe in F1
