It is not uncommon for owners of buildings to sell their property with current tenants (think apartment buildings). Sometimes existing leases may be used to increase the implied value of their holding.

Non-story. Should be good for some rampant speculation in the comments.

Agreed, Martino. Seems the only reason this "story" exists is to fill up the comments page. Which I realize is what I'm doing, but that's not the point.

They'll launch the car when it's ready.

Why add to the speculation? It is normal for property to change hands even so it is leased, the lease contract will have to be honoured, I just read that they (USF1) are going to use an in house build transverse transmission with technical help from EMCO, and they say there will be more surprises.

Fuss over nothing really. Typical of what this site has become creating a storm in a tea cup.

The building ownership has changed hands. The owner is hardly going to throw out the tenant who will likely be paying for everything (and a bit more) in terms of the property eg. ultilities, any loans the owner has through their rent, all maintenance and repair etc.

Doesn't change the fact that USF1 are behind all the other teams except possibly Campos.
