F1 » Horner denies agenda against F1 minnows


rob01: Sunny but it seems they also put in a clause so the team that did the best could have the advantage for 2 years. Correct?
I don't know about the clause you talking about, but because the freeze rule took off at the start of competition (season) the other PU manufacturers were not complaining for this year's freeze but for 2015. But as I said Mercedes are doing all they can to lock-out/ prevent others giving them any competition at least for the second year running.

Fullofit:
107SS2009: Provided that the grid stays as is (less Marussia and Caterham) Mercedes will account for 4 teams on the grid themselves included (8 cars), while the other PU manufacturers will account for 5 teams on the grid (manufacturers included) 10 cars).
Sauber won't be there. The latest coming from that camp is pure desperation and end of the road / last throw of the dice talk. 4 Mercedes teams, 2 Renault, 1 Ferrari, 1 Honda. & most likely Honda will vote with Merc to keep the agreed to regulations for 2016.
I personally believe that Force India and Lotus will be gone before Sauber.

When the FIA under pressure from Volkswagen. Renault and Mercedes devised the new PU formula under the guidance of the FIA head of power train Fabric Lom in an effort to limit the development cost after the birth of the new PU they developed a freeze system, but they recognised from the beginning that it could lead to a manufacturer achieving a dominant position and that this domination can persist for the duration of the development freeze, so they have set out a schedule to permit development by a system of tokens for the duration of the life cycle of the new PU formula which is 7 years, as it turned out Mercedes having done the better job of the three the advantage they have cannot be bridged by the system of tokens as is, and are now doing everything they can to lock-out/prevent having any competition to the extent of even ridiculing themselves after every meeting that is held on the subject.

Fullofit: At the end of this year, half the teams on the grid will be powered by Mercedes engines ... I don't know how Horner thinks he's going to push through any 2016 rule changes with a majority vote?
Provided that the grid stays as is (less Marussia and Caterham) Mercedes will account for 4 teams on the grid themselves included (8 cars), while the other PU manufacturers will account for 5 teams on the grid (manufacturers included) 10 cars).

ROB, "They can change 92 percent of their PU". Yes, over the life cycle of the new PU formula which is seven years. Not even Mercedes themselves are hoping to lock-out/prevent any competition from others for that period. All they can hope for/they are concentrating all their efforts on is locking-out/preventing any competition for at least the second year running.

F1 » F1: Webber to Button: Get on with it!


Que vades Jenson, with teams dying and driving opportunities following suit it could well be the end of his F1 career, also his chances in WEC will not be with Audi, Porsche or Toyota, his only option would be with newcomers Nissan. If he chooses DTM he will be following all those before him that tried their hand over there to a fast way to be forgotten.
