F1 » Honda hit by FIA engine loophole


it is no big issue! junglist has it right. but i cannot see many teams opting to run with their 2014 spec engines against a new 2015 engine. yes, there may be one or two teams that are prepared to take a gamble. merc for one, as their 2014 engine will probably still equal a 2015 renault or ferrari engine. the loophole was spotted by rbr, to the effect that they could hold out longer for the improved renault engine, and has absolutely nothing to do with honda and will not handicap them in any way.

F1 » Honda hit by FIA engine loophole


Lord Flashheart: So a new engine provider which is already behind the competition is going to be irreparably disadvantaged by ambiguous wording of the rules... Again
please enlighten me as to how you know that? maybe honda will have a pu (not just an engine provider! ) that will outperform the merc. seeing as to how no word has been released about the pu, it it totally impossible to imply that honda are behind. i think that they will have studied all the other pus and taken the best parts of each already, so will hit the ground running.

F1 » Honda hit by FIA engine loophole


rob. it was not arrivabenne who saw the loophole, it was your pal horner. about a month or so ago. i dont see why you are dismissive of arrivabenne though, you dont know his abilities etc, so even if it was him who spotted a loophole, you should actually be praising him for lateral thinking! as for a bridge, we soll you yanks a bridge many years ago. unfortunately you did not get what you thought you were getting! so we had the last laugh! :D :D

F1 » Abu Dhabi attempt cost Marussia £30,000


rob. yes some of the teams were set up purely to get some credence and then to be sold off. fernandes was the prime example as was hrt. but to give them their due, manor was already a successful race car team, and even though they started on the wrong foot by getting a computer to design their car, they were at least the genuine article. caterham is no loss, but manor is a loss to f1. oh and by the way, dont insult us by claiming windy as british! he was actually born in uk, but he is AUSTRALIAN. and i cannot find a good word to say about him. he is just a downright chancer!

F1 » Abu Dhabi attempt cost Marussia £30,000


rob. you seem to be missing the point. the intention was that teams could be limited to 40m. well, surprise surprise...manor (marussia) actually stand to get 40m for their results in 2014. so, if they are still entitled to get that 40m, then manor have the finances to re-enter f1 for this year. it will require a good accountant to ensure that the 40m goes to manor, rather than marussia creditors, but there has been a suggestion that a lot of the marrussia assets have been bought in tri=ust for manor. so we could still see them back

That's rather missing the point, don't you think?
