How can they NOT supply oil for Lotus in 2010? Didn't they supply oil to Williams in 2006? Since the CA2010 is pretty much the same engine as the CA2006, what is the problem? If anything, supplying oil for the same engine that is detuned should be a bit easier..... :?

The new cosworth has been given a jump on all the others in terms of using the newest technology. It's not the same engine as 06. All others engine packages have been frozen for sometime.

The Petrobras guys are about to sign a huge sponsorship agreement with Red Bull. Rumours are that it is a 20 mi USD deal and Red Bull will use petrobras gas station in latin America as dealers to its energetic cans. It is reported that Red Bull is loosing around 25HP with Renault engine and will try to recover with Petrobras lubricant. The products are already been tested in Viry-Chatillon.
