F1 » Sauber won’t be drawn into ‘mud fight’ with van der Garde

What really matters now is, that while GvDG wanted to drive for Sauber, Sauber wanted Ericsson and Nasr to drive their cars, and that is exactly who will drive for Sauber, GvDG night have had US$16M out of Sauber but he lost not only his driving seat but also his racing Career while Sauber got what they originally wanted. The end result, Sauber stays racing in F1 while GvDG gets out of F1 and forgotten.

F1 » Horner denies Mercedes complaints are hypocritical

After the Australian GP fiasco and the resultant high level talks/meeting between RBR/Renault Cyril Abituboul is blaming RBR for problems in Australia, see “L’Equipe” report (what he says is interesting) and also a must see is “autosports” of last year report about Red Bull “after criticism by Red Bull of their French engine partner”. I know that it is everybody’s right to express his opinion on here, but an effort should be made to keep oneself informed with F1 matters.

F1 » Horner denies Mercedes complaints are hypocritical

MR F1 Have been blowing a lot of wind into the spice man’s sails’. Sky Italia was quoting him as saying “Mercedes have had an unfair advantage during the design process for the new F1 V6 TURBO engine, they know more about the proposed power unit because Mercedes people were in close contact with the FIA in defining the concept of the engine, this is why they had such a strong start last year”. The FIA will step-in but only to better police any abuses, and this will not be of much help to RBR/Renault, as I said elsewhere, the FIA is already on the-step with their new fuel pressure directive (which have all the mark of one team written all over it), remember that on these PU’S being restricted by a 35cc per sec fuel flow at 10.5k rpm to a max of 3 bar boost, one extra cc per second of fuel flow will result in 3% power boost.

F1 » ‘No money, no honey’ Arrivabene warns Manor

I do not think they intended to turn a wheel in Australia, they only got there first to make sure of qualifying to Marrusia's 2014 $50m prize money and secondly because the freight was for free and also them being advanced US$10M by MR F1, but now they have to pay for their freight to Australia and to get back to base, and if they will not make the grid in next race they are out were they really belong.

F1 » Boullier defends cautious McLaren-Honda start

Reports I keep reading “normally reliable” still reporting that Honda is at least six months behind with their PU development, that Honda fundamental problems lie with their underestimating the preparation required , that their research centre at Sakura with its digital research benches is still nearing completion, that the current technicians have no F1 experience and that they are being assisted by ex-FERRARI engine designer Gilles Simon, that the Prodromeu car is causing Honda enormous cooling problems (RB10/Renault repeating itself), that Honda had only just one operational PU during winter testing in Jerez and a lack of spare parts to overhaul the PU, that to cap-it-all the new Honda president is not a F1 fan.

F1 » van der Garde reaches agreement, takes parting shot at Sauber

Richard, we will also have to wait and see (as I said elsewhere yesterday and early this morning) not only for the other side of the story but also to, “if this settlement deal includes guarantees such as “equity” transfer to Marcel Bockhoom who funds GvDG’S racing”. If it turns out as a guarantee of “equity” transfer, it would have been a gain to the team and of something like (being banded “US$16m”) about a useless/ineffective gain for Bockhoom.
