F1 » Under pressure Red Bull says ‘strength is development rate’

107SS2009: Ricciardo’s engine and Kvyt’s gearbox failures responsibilities lays squarely with RBR, on the first one Renault strongly advised RBR against using that development engine in Melbourne because it was not yet fully tested, (Renault was following in the same pat FERRARI did in opting to using their “EVO 1” engine for reliability reasons), on the second, contrary to what RBR was saying the gearbox is designed and build by them, as is their own mapping design imposed on Renault, all this while they complain of driveability.
I also remember that red bull drilled out the fuel flow sensor and cried bloody murder they were faulty. all in an effort to get rid of them. this team knows NO bounds.

F1 » Williams urges more fan research to develop F1

Seakay: Taz, you are entirely correct with your comment about F1 having become a marketing channel for car manufacturers.
the only car manufacturing company that uses f1 as a marketing channel is mercedes. ferrari have always used f1 as an extension of their car business. macca do not use it as a marketing tool for their few road cars. renault cannot use it as a tool as they have no performance cars to sell. red bull use it as a marketing tool for their brand. williams use it for marketing engineering, lotus have n connection with road cars, etc. the problem is that f1 is used as a brand in its own right, and there lies the problem. the brand has priced itself out of the market.
Ferrari does the EXACT same. unless your a red fan boy and cant see.

F1 » Vettel berates Rosberg over team-mate jibe

This just in. Nico has informed/invited Vettel to the Merc garage at the next race. And told him to bring his notebook. Vettel has been seen since he signed with Ferrari carrying a notebook. Makes him look cleaver I guess. My bet is that Ferrari tells him to stay out of the Merc garage. It would be a total embarrassment having the Red driver looking for help from another team. And for sure the Silver Arrows. Lets see if skittles replies.

F1 » Rosberg: Germany has to be part of F1 calendar

rob01: Born in Germany and stayed for two days as an infant. Hasn't lived there since. Yes he is German.
so? i must admit that i wasnt in germany at the time to see that he was only there for 2 days? how did you find out? doesnt affect his birthright as being classed as german. a person gets their nationality from three sources. mothers nationality, fathers nationality, and where born. nico has german as two of these, and finnish as one. so i reckon, on average he is german. now, i have three nationalities, so which one am i?
What are my 3 choices?

F1 » Ecclestone backs Red Bull's 'equalisation mechanism' call

RobbieD: How come Ecclestone never said anything when we had to put up with four years of Red Bull and the "finger" winning nearly all the races? None of the other teams threatened to quit just because they were not winning. Surely it is a case of " if I cannot win I won't play".
merc and macca were constantly moaning, and had red bull hampered at every turn. and the cars were far more equal then, even if the renault engine was the least powerful. and maybe the driver had some input too? dont forget, rbr were not getting 1-2 in the races.
As Sunny pointed out. They ran a car that skirted the rules the entire time.
