F1 » No debate for McLaren, but Honda keen to supply Red Bull

Andrew Cree:
DBL: Do we know who it was at Red Bull who cancelled the Renault contract before acquiring a replacement? You know, the stupidest business decision you can possibly make and why (if they haven't been sacked) are they still there?
Mercedes wouldn't talk to RBR whilst there was a valid contract in place - presumably, this applies to the other teams as well, and I suspect its a conflict -of-interest or other legally iffy area. As a result RBR cancelled the contract, thinking it would be easy to negotiate a new contract. Obviously, it isn't...
Back than few believed me and many disagreed when I said on here that Mercedes will not step on Renault toes, even when asked why and I gave the reason why (commercial partnership reason in detail).

F1 » Kvyat Red Bull seat not under threat – Horner

Hypoc: Poor poor Ricciardo, his smile won't be so big next year. Kvyatt might not be the perfect posterboy but can this kid drive a car, still a bit rough around the edges but this is going to be Red Bull's driver for the future.
It’s not only the Colgate kid whose smile will possibly be much smaller next year, but all of the Red bull employees whose destiny is most uncertain. As one editorial aptly put it, “one man’s meat is another man’s poison”. Castaldi (Lotus) to autosports “I can understand people asking, why is the deal with Renault not done yet? The reason is we cannot dance faster than the music, we have to be patient and go with what is happening”. The future looks to be up for Enstone with Renault playing the role unlike that of RBR/STR.

F1 » Horner: Independent engine supply crucial for F1

KJBOpel400: I read some where the Cosworth had/have a V6 Turbo ready for F1 but just need the backing?
They had a sketch on the back of a cocktail napkin.
You've got wrong!It was a drawing in the sand of a beach! (See what Richard Hammond said in the last edition of Top Gear about the Landrover!)
you are all wrong. there is ONE running prototype and can be seen running on u-tube. but it is not an entire pu with mgu h and mgu k. cossie needed the money to go into production but it was not forthcoming. now who has the money to produce it? not henry ford....but maybe mateschitz????
There we go there is Red Bull's Answer and it is just up the M1 in Northampton. And it they didnt want to call it a Cosworth they could call it Gives you Wings. So the Car's would be Red Bull Gives you Wing's.I'll get my coat as they say.

F1 » Red Bull at risk of missing first 2016 F1 test

Regardless of what Mateschitz two front line lieutenants has been and are still saying, Mateschitz has now burned all bridges to all four engine manufacturers on the grid and that includes Honda. Because of the way the Red BULLIES have been threatening their engine partner since 2009 over the alternators failings no one of the four wants to partner with them, not even to have anything to do with them. Mateschitz has now upped his anti with FOM and the FIA to try harder at shaking the tree for something to fall out, but at present there seems little Todt and Bernie can do to make the four manufacturers do something that they do not wish to do, the fizzy drinks team got themselves in a truly fizzy position, apart from all that, the feeling in all this is that at present there seems no urgency for anything to get done, as everyone seems to awaits the EU commission verdict on FI management of the sports.
