F1 » Red Bull has engine options for 2016


I do not consider what Cosworth has on the shelve to be a PU as a PU consists of a lot more then a turbo ICE, as such what Cosworth has on the shelve cannot be called a developed PU. The momentary problem the RB10 of Vettel suffered at the start in Austria had nothing to do with the Renault PU, the problem was caused by the FIA standard electronics which is supplied to all on the grid by MES (mclaren). Niether the two other Renault engined cars retirements were due to Renault PU, Vettel was retired because they calculated he had very little chance to finish in the points so they decided to save the mileage, Horner was wrong (too fast) to blame Renault. Horner/RBR politics are the dirtiest on the grid, they always were.

Contrary to the RBR propaganda their effort in helping Renault solve their PU problems has in fact hindered Renault, this because on the one hand RBR were all the time arrogantly dictating the way forward to Renault while on the other hand they were and still are publicly lambasting Renault. I will be most surprised if ever Renault/RBR working relationship will ever return to what it should be, this plus the fact that RBR behaviour re their PU supplier will be an eye opener to other possible suppliers.

Renault and FERRARI PU problems can be divided in two, the combined ICE/electric power output deficit to that of the Mercedes, on this I am sure that the deficit shortfall is in the electrical side of the power output, this opinion is based on the knowledge that these top three F1 engine makers each know exactly what power can be extracted out of a given allowable amount of fuel, yes there will be differences, but they will not affect the racing like it has been proved before, about this deficit nothing can be done this season as the rules stands. Then there is the reliability problems, these problems must also be divided in two, the problems belonging to the PU itself and the problems caused to the PU by the car installation, Renault suffered the most of both, the rules allows for these problems to be rectified, the most problems were encountered with RBR/STR, and it was these two that contributed the most to Renault long time in solving their PU problems.

Mustafur: This year is a write off, but the Hardware relaxtion after this season could very well Make Renault the best engine next year, i think Redbull need to shut up till the start of next season as there is nothing Renault can do till then.
RBR shut-up? the three Renault engined cars retirements in Austria was not down to the Renault PU, and that includes Vettel, RBR retired Vettel so early in the race simply to save on the PU because he was on his 4th PU, I cannot understand how the FIA permits such unsporting action by RBR, retiring a car when there is nothing wrong (the problem having solved itself).

The present three F1 PU manufacturers are the most experienced and successful, regardless of mistakes/miscalculations that have been done this year ( mistakes which cannot be rectified this year) it is hard to imagine a new comer to F1 PU manufacture (any of the new names being bended about) jumping into the fray and producing a product any better than any of these three can.
