F1 » Taffin: Engine costs will drop over time

Taffin's voice of reason is not in fashion in F1, the most extreme opinions rein now. The real issue is that the private teams are being made to pay for the R&D costs of the engine manufacturers who stand to reap all the engineering benefits for their commercial products. The private teams should not have to bare the burden when they don't share in those benefits. Now that the formula has reemphasized the importance of the engine and power-generating elements of the vehicle it is necessary to invest in this area as a performance differentiator. I for one am glad to see F1 leave behind spec equalized engines and a total emphasis on aerodynamics.

F1 » Fry and Tombazis out amid Ferrari F1 shake-up

Cleaning out the dead wood is admirable but they throw out the baby with the wash when they lost Alonso. Pat Fry should have been axed four years ago. An OK talent more interested in covering his butt than doing anything innovative or creative. Fry was one of the elements in Luca's team that wasted five years of potential world championships for Ferrari. Tombazis squeezed all the juice from Rory Bryne's brilliant designs and contributed zero in moving the scuderia forward, judged by his results. Allison must be overjoyed with the new landscape in Maranello!
