Ocelot Team Principle Rai Miyamoto seems to be furious with the team's performances over the last 3 years especially as the team's around them have made progress. Having been at a board of directors meeting in Tokyo, he confirmed that the directors are extremely unhappy and that it could be 'last days' for the team.
Following Rai Miyamoto's claims of the sport needing to be more social being shot down by most of the other team's this comes at a point where Ocelot have not moved up from 10th in the championship in the 3 years they have been in the sport.
As for who could take Ocelot's position, it is heavily rumored that the two teams who Ocelot have been mostly linked to are in heavy talks with the possible selling and re-branding of the team. These being Hibernas Lupus (Winter Wolves GP) of Germany and current IndyVirtual team Cerberus Motorsport who could look to entering the sport especially as their logo is featured on the Ocelot car and also due to their sponsoring of the Team's youth academy CODA (Cerberus-Ocelot Development Academy.)
Team Principle's Olivia Rose and Lena Kreger of both Cerberus and Hibernas are yet to comment on Ocelot's situation and whether or not they are in talks with the re-branding.
It was a clear, beautiful morning that greeted drivers for the inaugural round of the FV2 Series from Paul Ricard, France. Nobody could’ve expected the rain was going to thrash the circuit just after the conclusion of the race. The rush to the flag before the heavens would open led to a cracking race.
