New Team, New Colours…

You may have noticed three weeks ago in Monza, Italy the MF1 team sporting a new “name” addition. Now known as Spyker MF1 Racing, the team was sold during the Italian GP weekend. The team was sold to a Dutch-Arab consortium led by Michael Mol for a rumoured $90 million dollars.
The cars will sport new colours and livery starting with this weekend's Chinese GP. The cars will now run in orange and grey, similar to Spyker’s sports car program. It’s also believed that former Toyota F1 Technical Director Mike Gascoyne has been brought on-board. Gascoyne had currently been on “Gardening Leave.”
