Well to be fair RBR KERS probably beats no KERS at all, so as odd as it may seem to turn to them for KERS it should still be a boost for them. With the extra data and mileage they may even be able to improve the system more now.

Lotus has nuked themselves with this decision to use the Red Bull KERS .They should have stretched themselves to the super reliable Maclaren system and then smiled at the points it would have brought them .

Oh come on people. How can they have nuked themselves by adding something that will make the car slightly faster? It may or may not be the worst system out there but either way the bulls are faster when it works than when it doesn't.

Besides, I get the impression they're not actually going to use the current RBR system but a new one, co-developed between Renault, RBR, Team Tony and Magneti Marelli. Probably Williams too I would guess - i.e. all the Renault teams. And a fair assumption would be that they would use more of the current Renault technology than draw anything from the notoriously unreliable one on the bulls. Now that certainly seems like a good solution to me.
