Are Huski still sponsoring McLaren in F1 as well going into 2020? I know they were 'team partners' last year.

As per Tim Cindic, Penske giving Scott MacLaughlin a good look, might actually result in a few races.

Meh.

Funny how they just decided to photoshop his head onto Bourdais' body instead of snapping a new picture.

Easy way to be less racey-ist :P.

Given they kept the sponsor, I wonder what the deal was with Seabass.

I saw elsewhere that DCR had a free Honda engine for Seabass last year. When he didn't deliver during the season, Honda withdrew the engine and Seabass was given the choice of either coughing up sponsorship money or look elsewhere for a ride. Of course, money isn't an issue for Santino.
