Michiel Mol, the Director of Formula 1 racing for Spyker, has said that they are anticipating a better future now that the team is under the ownership of Alex Shnaider. However, he is keeping his expectations low for the first few seasons. He has stated that Spyker are aiming for a podium position within the next three seasons, with a win coming in the next 5 years.
He is also quoted as saying that although they have secured Mike Gascoyne’s services, achieving much more in the 2007 season was unlikely. “Everyone know that we do not expect much out of 2007,” he explained. “But in 2008 we must make a couple of considerable steps forward so that we are taken seriously.”
