about Gene Force

Gene Force (June 15, 1916 – August 21, 1983) was an American racecar driver.

Born in New Madison, Ohio, Force died in Brooklyn, Michigan as a result a heart attack at Michigan International Speedway. He drove in the AAA and USAC Championship Car series, racing in the 1951-1952, 1954, 1956, and 1958-1960 seasons with 33 starts, including the 1951 and 1960 Indianapolis 500 races. He finished in the top ten 16 times, with his best career finish in 3rd place occurring on 3 occasions.

The "McKay Special" #37 car that Force drove in the 1960 Indianapolis 500 was a 1959 Kurtis Kraft 500J, owned and entered by Roy McKay of Dayton, Ohio. Charlie Altfater was the mechanic. The car has survived in largely original condition and is now restored to appear as it did in the 1960 race, and can occasionally be seen participating in vintage races, as it did at the 2008 Monterey historics.

Sergio Perez finished eighth in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, while an oil leak – believed to be from a pipe unrelated to Mercedes – led to an eventual retirement for Esteban Ocon. The Silverstone-based team had to forfeit all its constructors' championship points after it changed ownership, starting again from zero at the Belgian Grand Prix. Despite that, Force India finished 10 points shy ...

Haas alleged that the new Force India entry, accepted by the FIA at the Belgian Grand Prix after the original entity fell into administration, is not a constructor because it used a design from a different company and team.

On the eve of the Formula 1 season finale, Haas lodged a protest against Force India, claiming that the team had broken the rules by not designing its own car. An investigation by the stewards concluded, however, that the FIA believes the new Force India outfit was within the regulations because it had used the design of the old outfit that had gone into administration. While Haas ponders ...

The stewards dismissed the protest and asserted that Force India's entry is legal and that the current Racing Point team can race a car designed by the previous Sahara incarnation, whose entry was withdrawn before the Belgian GP.

In its protest, the US-owned outfit claimed that current entrant Racing Point Force India is using a car designed and manufactured by its predecessor, Sahara Force India. It made specific reference to listed parts – those that the FIA specifies cannot be shared between teams, which are in essence the chassis itself and the bodywork. In their decision, the stewards dismissed the protest and ...

Since Sahara Force India morphed into Racing Point Force India at the Belgian GP Haas made it clear that it objects to the new team gaining the prize money that was earned by the original team. Other teams agreed to the move, but Haas maintains that it only did so on the basis that the same entity successfully emerged from administration. Haas has been in discussion with F1 boss Chase Carey ...

The change is understood to be precautionary and based on data observed during the previous race in Mexico. It will trigger a five-place grid drop because Ocon finished the Mexican GP, in 11th, and his gearbox has not completed six races. Ocon was 10th-fastest at the end of Friday practice at Interlagos, where his team is trying to score enough points to overhaul McLaren for sixth in the ...

Sauber propped up the constructors' standings last year, scoring just five points to nearest rival McLaren's 30 as it struggled with a year-old Ferrari power unit. Having switched to a current-spec engine, the team was once again slowest in the 2018 season opener in Melbourne – but the C37 blossomed into a midfield regular and an occasional Q3 threat as the campaign wore on. Asked by ...

The Ferrari driver's world championship hopes have been dented by a number of incidents in recent races where he has come off worse in wheel-to-wheel combat.

Racing Point Force India was the stop-gap name given to the new team that entered F1 mid-season thanks to the convoluted way Force India’s administration was resolved.  The team and its owners, a consortium of investors led by Lawrence Stroll, always intended on changing that name.  Team principal Otmar Szafnauer says the request should be lodged in time for it to be approved by ...
