RBR is the Renault works team, not lotus.
And for those doubting redbull- renault partnership inspite of infinity sponsorship, VETTEL and NOT KIMI was invited to test drive Renaultsport Twizy.

honda nostalgia yes and honda did well in the past but that was when allowed to build a better engine. now if they have better engine, other engine makers would be allowed to improve own engines and call it special reliability reasons like they did with renalt. f1 now is all the same, same wings, same tires, same bhp and fuel condumption, same lap times to small fractions of second.surprised they do not insist all drivers have same haircut.

Don't kid yourselves! Hondas return is due to the fact that there are very real passenger car opportunities with the new spec. Why 2015? Because this allows them to tear apart the Mc Laren Merc at the very first installation in their car and then copy the excellent German technology required for these new engines/energy recovery systems! Mc Laren / Honda partnership will be announced next week!

the engine rules and restrictions in F1 are such that NO ONE will have a real advantage,regardless of manufacturer. Merc are supposed to have the most potent engine today, but Renault have won the championship 3 years in a row. Reliability is no issue either, all these manufactures know how to build a tbo engine.
Aero & tires are the key here,not the powerplant.
If McLaren think the Honda engine can pull them out of the doldrums, they are dreaming...

McLaren may be struggling this year but I wonder if they're actually getting the top spec Merc engine any more.
It's more evident with the fact the other teams are ahead but McLaren may have done the sums based on what they had.

stu. there cannot be two different specs of an engine. the manufacturer has to supply an engine to fia, and all their engines must comply to that standard, with a freeze on changes. so merc, fi and macca all have identical engines.
