F1 » Vettel feels Red Bull needs winter to close gap

At the winter tests I stated that they will need between fifteen and twenty weeks just to fix their problem, by the eighteenth week they declared to have their PU up to one hundred percent, now Vettel is mentioning the need of another quarter (winter), And all this in-between saying that he doubts that they can catch Mercedes in 2015. RBR should forget of catching or matching Mercedes this year, for next year their PU suppliers will be allowed to chose what parts of the engine to develop based on tokens, with the annual number reducing each year thereafter, for 2015 they will have 32 tokens available, which means almost half of the 66 components the engine has been divided into, so unless they manage to persuade the FIA for a clean sheet of paper, they should also forget about designing a new engine for 2015. what I stated above is correct as per the rules, hope it will not confuse to many minds.

F1 » Smedley: Williams can last the distance

What an engine manufacturer supplies is a homologated specification, which means there cannot be any differences in what is supplied, of course this doesn’t cover any updates, and also it doesn’t cover installation with all the hardware that goes with it, also it doesn’t cover electrical harvesting and output mapping. Having said that I am sure that Williams was given preferential treatment of the three being supplied by Mercedes regarding certain directions nearest to the factory installation, could be that Mercedes never thought that they could get so close with their chassis.
