If the new Pirellis are so different than last year's tire, maybe there will be a need for more emphasis on mechanical grip rather than aero. If so, this could be a game changer for the order of F1. Newey is an aeronautical genius, for sure. If the emphasis favors mechanical grip rather than aero grip, we may see a new F1 engineering "genius" emerge.

I also see that Renault is asking that they be allowed to use new engines maps based on reliability issues. Even though red bull and lotus said they made NO difference when tested.. I smell a rat.

Renault boss Carlos Tavares says the French company is frustrated for not getting enough recognition for its F1 success along with Red Bull Racing the past three years. "We are frustrated by the lack of recognition we get for beating the likes of Ferrari and Mercedes. It is true that I think we deserve better. But part of that problem at least must lie with our global marketing team. It is clear that we must create a bigger buzz around what we do. We are world champions, we are able to sell our engines to the teams because of that, but we do not get enough recognition beyond that," Tavares said, according to Autocar.
