F1 » Illien optimistic of swift Renault progress


richard: if you read 10 different reports on sites, you will get 10 different interpretations! there is definitely a link between rbr, illien and renault and it is the rbr illien link that is saving renault and driving them forward. who ultimately is paying illien is a matter for conjecture. but one thing that you can be sure of, is that the pu in the lotus renault, will not be the same one as in the rbr. there will be differences.
The only difference will be a Watch sticker on the valve covers.

MaddMe:
107SS2009:
MaddMe: I'm sure I read somewhere that there had been a rule change which allowed such a split... I've been trying to track it down, but, sadly I have been unable to do so...
Just move your pretty backside and keep trying a bit harder to track down the rule change which allowed such split and when you find it do come back and let us know.
A little sketchy, but, Appendix 4.4 of the F1 2016 Sporting regulations appear to cover difference in the PU's between teams... Other than any parts agreed by the FIA at their absolute discretion to be solely associated with power unit installation with different teams, each manufacturer may supply only one specification of homologated power unit during any given calendar year, subject to any changes permitted by the FIA in accordance with the procedure set out in 2) above and 5) below.
I believe that covers mounting hardware.

F1 » Hunter-Reay: IndyCar drivers can succeed in F1 again


mrfill: Mr Hunter-Gatherer, It is indeed no good calling a team USF1, basing it in Charlotte and failing to produce a car for racing, like they did in 2010. I'm surprised at the lack of basic historical knowledge unless its just selective amnesia. In the same way as there was no mention of Scott Speed or Michael Andretti, who along with Rossi are the only US drivers in the past 25 years. Nostalgia's not what it used to be....
basic knowledge would tell you peter windsor is NOT an American.

F1 » Illien optimistic of swift Renault progress


107SS2009: Richard, The differences between the Renault power unit developed, manufactured and supplied to rbr from what Renault will use in their own car will be a watch sticker on the valve covers, that is apart from the possible different use of installation hardware. and by the way, this year rbr will have to accommodate the new Renault exhaust and turbo under their bodywork, which they were offered and refused to accomodate last year in the USGP.
You're talking to a Red Bull guy. He thinks they hung the moon.
