F1 » Mercedes waiting as Red Bull-Renault row intensifies

Renault will not be able to finance the Lotus deal and the running cost of the team if they do not have the income from the deal with RBR and Torro Rosso covering some of the cost. (and do not forget the data flow from having three teams instead of 1 or 2) They probably have a green light from the board based on a certain budget. And that budget could be increased by a couple of hundred million when RBR terminate the contract. (yes, RBR pays for the engines) That's the main issue here. When RBR terminates, Renault hasn't got the go ahead on the Lotus deal anymore. It is RBR who have Renault by the balls, not the other way round.

F1 » Lotus urges Renault sale as bailiffs move in

The questions are these a. Does Renault have the budget for the buyout b. Does Renault have the budget and capabilities for increasing engine performance, because the Renault is not a Mercedes and Lotus will be at the back of the grid with a Renault. The problem is that it is getting more and more expensive by the minute. Lotus debt is increasing day by day, Renault engine performance and reliability is still pretty bad and the problems with the RBR contract are going to leave a big hole in the Renault budget for 2016. And Bernie still needs the go ahead for making Renault a historic team while his revenue side is dropping (for example RTL Germany just got a huge discount and Sky Germany doesn't want any rights. So even if Renault is granted historic status, the financial reward is still unsure. That is not a good climate to buy a team with financial and legal trouble.

F1 » Should F1 be celebrating the value of modern celebrity?

F1 should open up more to families and fans, not celebrities. People should have a real chance to see cars and meet drivers. But huge motorhomes for VIP celebrities, celebrities themselves and their crowd of "friends" and security and the sick high price for entry (to scare away the average hard working dad who wants to show his kids what its all about) make that impossible. F1 has totally lost touch with real people. When I, as a kid, got to sit in Senna's Camel branded Lotus 99T with the man himself present, I was hooked. It's not so easy to get that done anymore, altough we did see and meet Max Verstappen at a free accesible demo with paddock access two weeks ago. And hey, now he likes to watch F1 too. Bang, new fan. That's how you do it Bernie. But we will still not pay for pay tv or overpriced track tickets. Celebrities, especially the ones who come for their own attention addiction instead of F1, should just **** off.
