There was some shock news in the paddock today as we prepare for Mexico. It has been revealed that Ocelot's engine partner has pushed for the re-branding of the team. Leading to the outfit now becoming Project Pegasus or simply Pegasus. The unknown manufacturer has not yet been revealed or for the reasons for the re-brand although Ocelot and soon to be Pegasus team principle Rai Miyamoto did share some light on the news.
''We have secured a fantastic deal with the manufacturer we will become a works team for. It's a new chapter for us now, we are still the same plucky team, with just a new roof under our head. We haven't forgotten the Ocelot name, since there's always a possibility of the brand to return at a later date, but for now we are Pegasus.''
Rumour has it that Cerberus Motorsport who bought into 15 percent of Ocelot earlier in the season may have also backed the name change for the team. Although for now it will remain to be seen how slow Pegasus will be next season although, perhaps it all just required a name change.
