F1 » Boullier: Works engine now crucial in F1


Those that are disagreeing with what E Boullier is saying are so much off the mark it can safely be said that they don’t know what they are talking about. That the advantage of being a works team/of having a works engine was going to be more crucial then before (it was always a factor before) has been recognised from before the season started. The fact that some done a better combined job than others does in no way suggests otherwise. The advantage of better/or preferential technical collaboration between chassis and engine manufacturers can best be seen by the Williams results.

F1 » Boullier: Works engine now crucial in F1


Mustafur, You are right nobody/nothing will stop anybody making the best engine, at present the immense complexity and expenses of producing the best PU has certainly made that task the hardest ever to achieve. But all the same previous experience/achievements/records do help and cannot be disregarded. For the record, Successes in the history of F1 engine designs/making, FERRARI 222 wins, Ford (Cosworth) 179 wins, Renault 166 wins, Mercedes 105 wins, Honda 69 wins. Note, I don’t have statistics as to the number of race starts entered.

F1 » Boullier: Works engine now crucial in F1


A lot to be said as to why and where are the Renault PU problems. But for the time being. History is going to repeat itself, “seven cars in the top ten have Mercedes engines” (Horner), the likely source behind the Renault engine plant for sale stories are Renault and RB, and this is the first step in a lobbying process to pressure the FIA to allow Renault to make incremental power plant modifications over and above those regulated for, this in an attempt to again equalise the F1 engines as happened (twice) in favour of the Renault V8’S.

F1 » Horner slams Renault failings


It is much overdue for Renault to tell RB to take their business elsewhere, Renault the third most successful F1 engine maker doesn’t deserve such treatment and arrogance, as A Prost Renault ambassador has been stressing to Renault, being an engine supplier only all the plaudits when success is reaped goes to the team and not the engine, while defeat will be all down to the engine, Horner and the Rottweiler arrogance knows no bonds, it was all demonstrated at their beginning with the Purnell/Pitchforth affair, it must be remembered that their RBR success years started by Newe revisiting the original Renault blowing of the diffuser, (dummy exhaust pipes days) and thereafter it wouldn’t have been possible without the Renault engine being able to be adapted so well to the off-throttle engine mapping.
