F1 » Honda hit by FIA engine loophole


This confusing situation regarding the (time) unfreezing the PU development is not new in F1, This situation (confusion) is mostly greeted by the specialised F1 British media, something that they specialize in and thrive-on, the real problem is for those people that depend on reading them to form their opinion, some of whom could not even form an opinion and are at a total loss with confusion.

F1 » Honda hit by FIA engine loophole


Mercedes has done all they could to lock-up for as long a time as possible their PU advantage. While their effort to prevent others from catching-up was ongoing their supporters were saying how sure they were that the others will not catch-up, a lot of horsepower that Mercedes could add to/could find in their PU was banded about, now that the others has managed to unlock Mercedes time advantage why is their supporters so upset? Mercedes is not being prevented from improving their PU any less than the others. Honda has no homologated engine yet, for them to be on the grid for the first race they have to homologate an engine they intend to use like the others did. Them entering a year later than others will be regarded as they has essentially having used all 32 tokens already, if not they would have effectively been provided with two development windows compared to others.

F1 » Honda hit by FIA engine loophole


rob01:
richard: it is no big issue! junglist has it right. but i cannot see many teams opting to run with their 2014 spec engines against a new 2015 engine. yes, there may be one or two teams that are prepared to take a gamble. merc for one, as their 2014 engine will probably still equal a 2015 renault or ferrari engine. the loophole was spotted by rbr, to the effect that they could hold out longer for the improved renault engine, and has absolutely nothing to do with honda and will not handicap them in any way.
Sunny says the Marlboro man found the loophole. And if the two of you really believe that loophole is real I have a bridge for sale in San Fran I want to sell you. Its one thing saying there is a loophole but praising anyone that had a begging bucket out and got it filled is just plain sad.
As I said elsewhere, this was the Marlboro man first direct hit, but at the table at the last meeting his representative was Alison

F1 » Abu Dhabi attempt cost Marussia £30,000


Who said that you couldn’t make a profit from F1 unless your name was BE?. Unlike Marrusia’s loss Caterham made a profit. Whilst Caterham was waiting creditors committee decision for approval to sell documents reveal that that the team made £75k profit from crowd funding, the plan raised £2.4m which allowed fans to buy team equipment and get their name on the cars, what fans got back amounted to £160,315. Kobayashi and Stevens provided £515,298, Caterham fuel bill in Abu Dhabi was £80k, plus travel/accommodation of £2577, team members were paid £2k each against what Marussia used to pay their team members (£2800 each).

F1 » Alonso the target if Hamilton leaves Mercedes F1


And now that the discussion has somehow more or less turned back on the subject proper, here is a warning to Lulu followers (are you reading Rob?) to brace themselves for a possible repeat of Lulu telling his present bosses to go swivel. Shortly after 2014 Belgian GP rumours stated doing the rounds that a meeting took place at Mercedes described as (could spell the end of Lulu tenure with the team), in the preceding weeks Rosberg signed a multi-year deal up to 2017, but plans were then put on hold in regards extending Lulu’s contract beyond 2015. At the time (5th September) the Guardian reported that those in Stuttgart weren’t happy with the level of remuneration they were paying Lulu and so any new deal would require Lulu to take a pay cut.

F1 » Alonso the target if Hamilton leaves Mercedes F1


HRC: Just to add a couple of points of note. GDI is nothing more than an acronym for gasolene direct injection, Mercedes version of direct injection, and not really any different than any other form of common rail direct injection, which all F1 engines have to utilise from 2014 onwards. Turbosupercharger, an old word that's not used any longer, could we just stick with turbocharger and supercharger which gives a clear distinction between the two.
No arguments about CD. but don't trouble the Profs too much. “turbosupercharger” because it (the air compressor) is powered/driven by exhaust gasses as well as by an electric motor.

F1 » Alonso the target if Hamilton leaves Mercedes F1


Rob, My personal opinion only, could be that last year was the year that we witnessed the last two mega drivers (pay) contracts (Vettel/Alonso. I wouldn’t count on the (Alonso to Mercedes) thing too much, I tend to give Bottas more of a chance, a bit more of (conflict of interest) will not hurt, that’s besides it will be (hitting three birds with one stone), a good commission on one side and a good pay rise on the other side plus a good saving for Mercedes.

ProfessorX:
107SS2009: Continued, And Mercedes known that the others will catch-up all along, what they managed to do was borrow some more time for 2015. Contrary to many believe Mercedes is the least experienced when it comes to F1 turbosupercharged engine out of the three on the grid (2014) and out of the four on the grid (2015).
I am afraid you are wrong Sunny, nobody will catch Mercedes, unless Honda is holding back, Because the rules are set, and Mercedes already have extra in the bag. Mercedes were not even running full out last year. In the end you have to look at F1 like fighter jets, and unfortunately Merc have the best reserves in terms of energy and the best potential in terms of out right ponies. Hence, Merc can run higher levels of down force and they have much greater latitude in terms of design. It's like watching everyone else have to carry 50kg of ballast. It's a no brainer, and Mercedes have GDI and a power plant that will prob
