F1 » Sainz Jr confirms Caterham contact


it now appears that sainz was doing a solo run with caterham, or perhaps (more likely) caterham thought that approaching sainz with an offer, would get red bull on their side and with possibly financial benefits. it has been denied that there is any chance of sainz going to f1 at present, and he has been told to concentrate on 3.5.

F1 » Bottas sees potential FRIC advantage


sunny might know about the engine. as far as i know, it is the only v8 engine that yamaha ever made as they are not known for car engines. just googled it. it seems that yamaha were contracted to build a v8 car engine for their xc 90. it apparently is a volvo design, but polestar have carried out mods for the v8 series. seems that it may have nothing to do with the f1 engine. i hadnt realised that yamaha was building engines for others! you learn something new everyday.

F1 » Bottas sees potential FRIC advantage


sunny. thanks for that about yamaha. more involved than i had realised. re str / red bull. probably politicing. rbr would not want to be seen as the major team to create the problem , so str are the stalking horse. but note too, that there are two renault engined teams, one merc engined team and one ferrari engined team. so are all engine manufacturers using stalking horses? but in reality, it should be the responsibility of the scruitineers to either pass or to reject the cars. to pass them and then have a protest would indicate that the fia was not doing its job.
