  • Pato O´Ward out of Harding Steinbrenner Racing

    http://www.record.com.mx/otros-depor...ward-en-riesgo Article is in Spanish, but Google translate is avaialble.
    Bummed to read this, but financial issues at Harding Steinbrenner due to lack of sponsor.

    Hopefully he can ditch that sinking ship and take his Mazda money elsewhere but I wonder if they already spent it.

      All they hype for this team and they might not even show up.

        I believe they are sending Herta. I follow them on twitter and they were loading up.

          It seems like Steinbrenners never really wanted O'Ward. Patricio was picked by Harding/Andretti and now Harding's part of the garage is strugling without money. It's a darn shame because everybody saw that O'Ward destroyed young Herta in Lights and after that shined bright at Sonoma, while Colton was a weak shadow all weekend long.

          And why the hell mexican sponsors don't support their highly talented compatriot?

            Name means everything. O'Ward might have the speed but Herta has the name. It's an old problem.

              That's a bummer. I have a good feeling about that kid.

                I'm sure they're working on securing a sponsor. I can only wish them luck. Can the league assist in these kind of things or do they stay clear?

                  Robin's first question in yesterday's mailbag was about this problem and apparently his honest answer was too much for somebody and the question and answer were pulled out a few hours later.

                  I don't recall exactly what was said as I wasn't aware of the troubles there yet.

                    You'd think supposed race fan Carlos Slim could spay a few bucks for this kid? As opposed to the gallizions he's wasted in F1.

                      A new team not having sponsorship 100% in place in February. Shocked, I tell you.

                        Seems like this team is on even more shaky financial ground than they were last year.

                          Listened to MP Podcast, and sounds like MP and Robin are waiting on news before publishing on what I assume is this subject. Hence the removal on the mail bag.

                            This is so bad. O'Ward is head s and tails above Herta and gets bumped. Nepotism working well I see. Herta needs another season in Lights IMO and gets a season of IC...unbelievable.

                              That's a stretch to say he is heads and tails above Herta. But I do wish and hope both get their full time chance this year.
