F1 » Newey warns: Without engine parity, Renault could quit F1

Whilst all-but confirming that Red Bull Racing will stick with Renault into 2011, Adrian Newey admits his fear that the French manufacturer may well quit F1 if it is not allowed to regain the ground it has lost under the sport's engine freeze

The lack of engine parity despite development freeze is a blight on F1. Newey's design is by-far the best for last two years, but hampered by bungled FIA ruling on diffusers and engines.

Engine freeze is fine if they agree to put them all on a dyno and equalize, but locking in an advantage for McLaren is a disgrace.

Come on Jean Todt...fix this!

With all the poles and wins this team has they are not going to get concessions for a talked about disadvantage. Horsepower is not the only issue. It is making full use of the horse power generated. Maybe they should look their instead of begging. And Newey should not for Renault as they are talking of winning a World Championship next year. Hopefully, Newey doesn't think he is Ferrari who has threatened to quit for the last ten years running to try and get their way.

Who needs parity when next year teams will have again the KERS toy to play with...?

The Renault engine is arguably weaker than Merc and Ferrari. First time this season RedBulls haven´t battled for a pole nor victory having a superior car means JUST ONE THING:

Crappy Engine.

it has though given us a better than average season, five contenders covered by one win, alonso in a ferrari that has been a little inconsistant, but he has managed to become the focal point of the most famous team on the grid, two mclarens piloted by the last two world champions, and the ever fast red bulls, bernie ecclestone will be rubbing his wallet

If Adrian is so concerned about the Renault engines lack of performance, and Mercedes and Ferrari are not available or viable options, why dont RBR do a deal with Cosworth? I have not see any lack of speed by Williams, even at Monza, with a far inferior chassis to RBR. Cosworth as I understand it is not as constrained by the engine freeze, so come on Adrian, stop whinging when your winning.
