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


JJJ: I wouldn't doubt it if the Renault PU was to remain at the same level as last year, however, I suspect they'll make significant gains over this winter and the course of next year, either whithin the regulations or because the FIA looks the other way now and then to let Honda and Renault catch up (cause let's face it, F1 can ill afford to lose manufacturers which is the only outcome if the engine freeze is held up rigidly).So...bit of frustration from last year and wishful thinking for next year from Max I reckon.
As agreed by everybody concerned in formula 1 as from 2015 there was no engine freeze, in fact about half of the engine components (2015) and more than half again in (2016) can be freely developed. Also I don’t agree that if F1 sticks to the present engine format and to its duration any of the present manufacturers will drop-out, in fact I believe that they will if the goal posts of what was agreed upon will be moved.

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


richard: that is funny. it was stated a couple of weeks ago that str would be using the SAME engine as the works team. and that came from ferrari themselves!
Richard, I must have missed that one. Mytyres. This is a repeat post of mine from January 8th, “4/10/2015, 2016 regulations published by the FIA for 2016 season states that the 2016 customer engine/PU must be same specification as work’s teams” (article 23.5 of the sporting regulations pdf). Note that these rules turned out to apply ONLY to engine/PU hardware AND NOT to software, fuel or lubricants. BUT THAN after the above on 4/12/2015 “the FIA has a agreed a rule change to allow Toro Rosso to use year old specification engine/PU.

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


goldenoldie: The whole thing about the Ferrari engine deal is that you can only understand if you get the bigger picture! And as is so often the case in motorsports, there might be interests that are hidden from the public!
Goldie, the only bigger picture I could see and the one that seemed crystal clear to me was the assurance from the red bullies top brass (owners of STR) that they had terminated their contract with Renault one year short of contract duration and that if they will not have a competitive engine they will pull both teams out of F1. All this ended with rbr still ending up with a Renault engine while their other team ending up with a year old specification engine. add to all that that their genus has now ended up frustrated like never before because of the watered-down 2017 aero rules.

I remember the same article. The article suggested STR would have engine parity with the works team.
As I said to Richard, I must have missed what you two are taking about, but, the only supply parity I ever read about was that demanded by the red bullies top brass.

F1 » Italian GP close to securing Monza future


HRM:
107SS2009: Monza is one of the few races left on the calendar that formula one needs more than Monza and the other few races needs formula one.
Monza will only get a race if they can pay for it. Unless they can come up with a revised PU specification that is a count of 6 Races in dough over the next 2 to 3 years. Why do you think Bernie is screaming about costs because he knows the can not pass increasing costs off to the country's promoting F1 races.
"Unless they can come up with a revised PU specification" I thought we were talking about a race track on here, but it could be that your brightness which seems to be as bright as a 1000W bulb is effecting my brains.
