F1 » Renault slams Red Bull, accuses it of ‘lies’


lovef1. you are one of the few who can be objective. you are right about the renault being behind the game. even with the 2.4s they were behind the others, and it was only thanks to red bull that they got any wins at all. rb are fully correct in blaming renault. look at how every other renault user bailed out....not because of rb, but because renault could not provide a good engine. renault are just trying to divert attention from their own poor product. they were fully aware of problems last year and proudly boasted that they had overcome these, only to be totally exposed again. contd

F1 » 'Performance deficit due to engine and chassis', says Renault


rob01:
DrRiff: I can't see how the chassis can be faulted if the PU stops working on the parade lap.
The chassis is unstable at the rear. It damaged the gearbox.
rob. the chassis did not damage the gearbox ! seeing as how the gearbox is mounted on the engine and not on the chassis, that is an impossibility. however the problem was that a bought in part in the oi pressure pump , failed, causing lack of oil pressure and hence overheating of the box.

F1 » Max Yamabiko: Decoding Ferrari’s power unit shift


sunny. have you seen the omnicorse report about the merc fuel flow issue that explains their power, and also that of the new ferrari unit? all to do with previously reported questions and the reason why fia are now going to monitor fuel flow in more positions. the increased pressure of 500 bar is increasing fuel flow, but not at the single sensor. renault are still using 250 bar, and hence their lack of power. it will be interesting to see if, from china, the merc's speed will be pegged a bit. (and ferrari....sorry!)

F1 » Max Yamabiko: Decoding Ferrari’s power unit shift


shamarone: re: "According to senior team members the MGU-H was not able to harvest as much energy as it should have done from the turbocharger and that led to reduced power overall during races" correct, they weren't "driving" the turbo. re: "On top of that the combustion chamber was not as good as it should have been and as a result that has been fully reworked..." ...so as to better "drive" the turbo. re: "Notably the new exhausts feature heat shields and, for much of 2014, the Ferrari used bare metal exhausts which must have cost a notable amount of power..." ...and reduced what was available to "drive" the turbo. see crash, you now have confirmation from none other than FERRARI that what i said was in fact correct.
the only thing i see is that you havent a clue about the f1 pu!

F1 » Williams urges more fan research to develop F1


Seakay: Are you saying Renault and Honda are not in the sport for brand awareness? And smaller engines/turbo charging/electric hybrid/lower fuel consumption/lower co2 levels etc - these very recent changes are not about motor racing, they're about aligning with and being relevant to the development of road going vehicles.
yes. renault are currently in f1 by default, and there has been absolutely no transfer of f1 into their road cars. nobody would purchase a renault due to their success in f1. they actually see themselves as producers of cheap cars. and as for honda? honda have stated that they are not interested in building cars that are extreme, as their consumers are conservative (new nsx apart)

F1 » Williams urges more fan research to develop F1


Nutty...for once you have actually got it right! that is what i said about merc. they want to appeal to a younger driver. and yes, also ferrari...it is a BRAND and can survive without f1. and look at the two examples given by seakay....renault and honda.....both pulled out of running teams, but both are now supplying engines, and both are the pits! some image they are creating to attract buyers to their cars.

F1 » Williams urges more fan research to develop F1


aeolus: I thought it referenced use of a fan to supply down force as per Jim Hall's CanAm 2j "sucker" car. I saw it in action at Watkins Glen with Jackie Stewart at the wheel. Jackie blasted off and left Bruce and Denny in the dust. It was amazing. Unfortunately it didn't last long as the Lexan skirts failed.
a fan car was used in f1. check out the bt48. and it wasnt banned, nor did it have any problem with skirts. in fact, it was bernie (then owner of brabham) who decided that (oddly enough) it had too much downforce and it was not in the interest of f1 to proceed with it !!!!!!!!!!!
