F1 » Kaltenborn: F1’s agenda is ‘four or five names’

Taz, It is the current formula what we was talking about. Re Caterham/Fimbar crowd funding, The latest information I have is that the crowed funding seems to have stalled unless half of what is needed they intend to rise from pay drivers. Within 3 days the funding reached £1m, with just 3 1/2days left to depart to Abu Dhabi this weekend the project has raised £1,187,532 as of 11.30 GMT today from 3200 backers.

F1 » Kaltenborn: F1’s agenda is ‘four or five names’

107SS2009: And why and who says that customer cars have to be old specification cars?
So you reckon merc would supply an WO14 with latest PU fixes to a team in 2015? Just curious. I remember when the Red Bull give STR a decent chassis and STR had the better Ferrari engine :)
No there is no reckoning on my part re the PU fixes as specification will have to be the same, the only leeway will be in some "level" of software. All in all a back of the grid team can never hope to match the level of a supplied customer car.

F1 » Rosberg: I’m in good shape

That Rosberg is in good shape to win the last race I have no doubt, but winning the last race will not win him the championship unless Lulu runs into either reliability problems or some trouble of sorts. The lack of rain in the desert and the fact that the nearest car to the WO5’S in a dry Brazilian race finished 40 seconds behind both the WO5’S makes the odds more like another 1-2 for recedes. But still, in F1 everything can happen.

F1 » Hamilton doesn’t feel comfortable ahead of Abu Dhabi

Re the 5 PU components used by car 44 and 6 as at Brazil. Both used 5th ICE, 5th TC, 5th MGU-K, 5th MGU-H, but both used 4TH CE and 4th ES, which means they both can make use of a new 5th CE and 5th ES without incurring a 10 place grid penalty. As I said elsewhere both cars 44 and 6 had their gearbox seal broken in Brazil and all gear ratio pairs and dog rings where replaced. Also all PU106A in use in Brazil had their seal broken and the MGU-K drive shaft replaced for a new one, this being the second time, this drive shaft was the subject of a request to the FIA after Lulu engine failure in FP2 at Silverstone and which was approved by all teams to redesign under the sporting regulations appendix 4 (upgrade of PU parts for reliability reasons), of which the declared fault was a design flow, the new redesigned shaft was installed in all PU106A'S in Germany.
