Now for words of wisdom from the Old Dog...
Lewis Hamilton is the Monster of the midway..
Good car, bad car, matters little, Alonzo knows the score.
How sweet it is..

Singapore should suit the Renault powerband more than the Merc I reckon . Clever tactic talking up lulu and pointing media attention in another direction , did it to Kimi last week.

I would not set Red Bull aside as down and out. SV is just 2 points from LH, which is one podium step from leading him. Kimi has him covered as well. In fact, Hamilton is closer to finishing is usual 4th in the WDC than he is to overtaking Alonso's lead in points. Hamilton is quick, but not so quick he can overcome the Alonso deficit while simultaneously holding off three others equally capable and determined to keep him from succeeding before them.

Rob, when I and Richard were talking about the Renault alternator problem I mentioned heat/vibration or overload as one of the most likely problems and nothing to do with the design/manufacture of the alternator, and yes the engine bay ambient temperature can effect it, remember that the engine although it sites in the engine bay is water and oil cooled but the alternator is not.

rob. all renault engines hae suffered from alternator problems. but not as fatal. both lotus cars had overheating alternators and also the pirelli test renault car had a failure from overheating, a few days ago. yes, the tight bodywork of the bulls maybe part of the problem, but they had tight bodywork last year with no problems, nor did they hae problems early in the season. re the kers, iam not sure if rbr still use their mini kers or not, but aain, a number of teams have had kers problems this year, with complete failure, but rbr havent had total failure. ever car has its marginal components, but when a certain component is haing problems on different cars, the blame clearly lies with the component!

What about, Re-route some KERS power and eliminate the alternator?
My Car will run for at least 50km on battery when my alt dies, good weight saving solution?
