F1 » Ricciardo ‘expected better’ from Renault

Omega: Yeah, I guess. I mean, it's not like there's any historical evidence to suggest that Ricciardo could match or even beat Vettel is there? Oh wait...
oh drop the waving of the southern cross! most people (other than aussies,) seem to know what the reasons were for last year, namely the talks with ferrari in april. however, as ricciardo is being shown up by kvyat, then kvyat must be one hell of a driver! and as aussie drivers go, i would put webber ahead of ricciardo any day.

F1 » F1 moves for louder cars in 2016

paul.kirk.7923: I don't agree, I reckon appart from a recording of an H16 BRM I heard, it's hard to beat the sound of a V8 Sprint car engine, or a Nascar or Ausi touring car V8! To me it's quallity/character of the sound, not the loudness/desibels that is important. In fact I do not enjoy engines that are too loud. PK.
you obviously have never lived! the sound of the 12 and 16s was an ear piercing scream. when the v8 repco was introduced, there were many many complaints that the sound was too low and too much of a rumble. it was typical of yank tanks. but some people have become so conditioned to these, they now think that it is a must for f1. any true afficiando will disagree! oh, and by the way, listening to a recording can in no way replica the true sound.

F1 » Manor confirms Mercedes engine deal for 2016

Seafordguy: Why would you expect any different? Should RBR have gathered all the top tier teams together several years ago and said "Hey Guys - we figured out this Blown Exhaust thing and you guys should consider using it"? RBR made their own bed, but even had they not I don't think Merc or Ferrari or any other manufacturer should be obligated to supply power. You want to be a top-flight F1 team, than you need to find a engine partner that prioritizes you and that you cultivate a lasting relationship with.
what an ill informed comment. there is nothing wrong with using aero, and all teams developed their own systems. but seemingly you now want f1 to be just confined to two manufacturer teams...merc and ferrari. how the hell do you think other teams can compete if they do not build their own engines and are supplied inferior equipment by the big two? SHEESH.

WRC » Volkswagen boss shakes off impact of emissions scandal

Gotcha22: Remember when the Japanese tried to close the Futenma Marine base there? The US hit Toyato with a 1 billion $ run away car claim setelment. The Germans have signed the minks protocol, allowing VW to open a new engine plant in Russia, against the will of the US, and the rest is history. They've known about this software since 2013...sour grapes ?
they have known about it since 2007! and did nothing about it!

F1 » Red Bull pushing for ‘first-class’ engine in critical talks

SBchris: (...contd) Long-term, in one case, VW comes in to get some "green" PR to help them out of their emission's fiasco. That could only happen if DM pays for the development, as VW will be next to broke after the dust settles. Beyond that, the only plausible solution would be for DM to pay Cosworth for an engine design, as Ford did in the past.
vw were never going to enter even before their fiasco. porsche and audi are their sports brands, and they did not even consider f1. cossie have a 3 yo design, but no runner. and it would take another 2 years to develop it into a running prototype. so it aint going to happen.

F1 » Red Bull pushing for ‘first-class’ engine in critical talks

SBchris: Its genesis can be traced directly to the point where RBR put an Infinity logo on their car. That deprived Renault of their justly deserved global recognition. (contd...)
infiniti is a renault -nissan brand, so there was nothing wrong with the logo on their wing. renault wanted it to promote the brand! and the engine is clearly called and labelled a renault. renault even use the car in their adverts.
