F1 » Manufacturers seek to entice Todt with cheaper engines


This is not suitable reading for those without a pinch-of-salt inside their brains. Jean Totd’s motto was never and is not a “power battle”, his motto was and is “rule by Consensuses”. As I said earlier, this latest move by the manufacturers has now isolated Bernie/red bullies from the FIA. Some time ago, at the start of this PU/power struggle fight I said on here that, the unicorn fart powered Bernie/red bullies engine will not happen in 2017, that Bernie is being given the rope to hang himself with Totd/FIA commission. That as long as the four manufacturers sticks together this is one power battle that Bernie as backed by the red bullies will not win. This latest position by the manufacturers is such that a compromise will be found, but that will result with the teams/FIA “GETTING MORE” and the commercial rights holders “GETTING LESS”. Sergio Marchienne isc to hard a bone for Bernie/red bullies.

F1 » Manufacturers seek to entice Todt with cheaper engines


HRM:
107SS2009: The red bullies and Bernie's unicorn fart powered engine will not happen in 2017. Any changes or compromises reached to the present power unit format can only happen/result with approval from all four manufacturers and not by dictate from Bernie as backed by the red bullies, because that dictate is firstly illegal.
The FIA commission has authorized Jean Todt to proceed with the tender for the independent supplier engine. I would have thought that the FIA commission would have the control of the FIA not the 4 manufacturers.
The FIA commission was legally out of order and also in breach of EU regulations in authorizing the commercial rights holder/s to change FIA rules and regulations, and that is apart from both FIA and FOM obligations as per the concord agreements with all teams on the grid, including the red bullies.

This manufacturer’s move has isolated Bernie and the red bullies from the FIA. Another case of water having been spilled and added from the bucket moving between F1 sites in this here headline subject. Whom has Honda charged between 16-20 million for a PU supply?. At what time last season did the red bullies ended without an engine supply for the 2016 season? And if that was the case, who was it that terminated their contracted PU supply for the 2016 season?.

F1 » Ferrari, Red Bull, McLaren chosen for Pirelli wet tyre test


mytyresaregoingoff: If we accept that even testing with a 2015 car can give an advantage then I am interested to know how the teams were selected?
There was no team/s selection by Pirelli or the FIA, teams were invited to test, if more than three teams applied, Pirelli were willing to split testing in two, Mercedes decided not to test by their own chose.

F1 » Verstappen ‘expecting a second per lap’ from Ferrari engine


MaddMe: In the F1 sporting regs for 2016 dated 8/12/15 it does allow for the year old engines to be used, they do however have to be rehomologated be the end of February... If the STR is a second a lap quicker than with the Renault PU then it isn't only the Bulls that need to watch their back...
Yes, that is what I posted/said (8/12/2015 rule change) but no, the 2015 (year old PU) will not have to be re-homologated because changes to specification is not permitted, if changes to specification were permitted, it would not be a year old PU.

A little conflicting in the regs that bit... Appendix 4.2 says PU's will only hold homologation for 1 season, but, 4.6 indicates that they don't need rehomologation (at FIA discretion)...
If "a last year homologated" engine specification has not been changed that engine homologation still stands, on the other hand, a current engine upgraded by use of tokens wi
