Good move for the Hulk. Roy Sahara has been in Indian jail for the last 2 years, and Vijay Mallya has big legal problems re money owed to employees and banks of his defunct kingfisher airlines. The team is rumored to be on the market, but no one is willing to pay VJ's asking price (200mio).
To finish as high as they are now means a good deal of $ for the team.
Some pundits expect ex Ferrari man James Allison to be at Renault in 2017. That would be good news for the team.
Btw, since Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne became an instant F1 expert, Ferrari has lost much of its key personnel, and seems to have returned to kiss up / kick down style leadership. Vettel can't be a happy camper.
