F1 » Button wants Honda push on power before reliability


Vincero, I did not say that the Honda PU is not the biggest problem of the MP4-30, I was quoting Arai as saying that the Honda PU was not the only problem of the MP4-30 and that the chassis had its own problems and also that both Boullier and Alonso agreed that the chassis contributed to the problems. And to be honest I was relieved to read that both Boullier and Alonso agreed with what Arai said, as this was another potential Renault/RBR situation. Certain arguments/opinions of McLaren supporters will potentially do more harm then good to McLaren.

F1 » Button wants Honda push on power before reliability


Yasihusa Arai is not of the same opinion as Button and even Eric Boullier agreed with Arai. Arai just came out insisting/saying that Honda is not solely to blame for mclaren’s 2015 formula 1 season problems, and he points to some chassis issues which have not helped matters, a fact that even Alonso admitted. Seems more like Button trying to smooth out his seat at mclaren for next year.

F1 » Red Bull waiting on Renault for answers


csmith: keep waiting my friends. renault was double dipped and fried by red bull during first half of year. All set and done renault have way more money than red bull and triggering their ego has yielded the expected result (renault ignoring redbull / charting its own path )
For those that seems incapable to dig deep into a formula one matter at hand before making up their minds and committing to comments. Less than two months ago Mercedes were adamant and saying “supplying PU’S to RBR will never happen”. And later “as it is there are still contracts to be respected by Mercedes”. Mercedes is a 3.1 percent shareholder in Renault, and likewise Renault a 3.1 shareholder in Mercedes, there is absolutely no chance of them stepping on each other’s toes.

F1 » Red Bull waiting on Renault for answers


here4thesun2:
And that captures the number 1 problem with Formula 1 competition today. Merc is allowed to run the table and the next in line is a customer. Unless Ferrari are equally as good to alternate wins, it is hopeless. They don't have (enough) tracks that would benefit a car similar to Red Bull (good chassis, not most powerful engine). There are deterrents for building a better (aero) chassis. So it is all down to who has the best engine and that is naturally the one who builds them. Although the major part of the new rules introduced in 2014 concerned the PU, they also concerned the chassis, these new rules wanted, formulated and agreed by all manufacturers on the grid were and still are equal to all manufacturers on the grid. A manufacturer having produced a better car package (engine/chassis combination) than all the others is not the problem, the problem belongs to the other manufacturer,

Those that don’t like reading facts and or only likes reading what they like to hear should skip the following, Apart from the fact that RBR has been fishing for a new supply of F1 engines while still under contract to Renault as a premier factory team, this fishing about having started in the Mercedes pound as far back as 2009 as conformed by both Brawn and Haug and as vetoed by mclaren, and as recently having went fishing in the VW group’s pound as confirmed by VW themselves, and later still back at the Mercedes pound as confirmed by the totonator, they (Horner) is now basically saying that if Renault buys a F1 team (presumably other than STR which RBR were willing to sell to Renault) Renault will automatically be in breach of their contract with RBR, as they are the Renault premium team. Somebody who really knows what he is talking about told me, Williams has a premium customer contract with Mercedes which could impact any deal with RBR. if true this means that there is even a diffe

The problem the FIA ended with on its hands by the new PU formula concern the customer teams, exactly the "technical" control vested on the manufacturer of his PU customers. up to 2014 the main elements of the car were the chassis and engine combination, from 2014 another element in the form of ERS was added to the combination of car chassis and engine, before 2014 any weakness in one of the two combinations could be more or less compensated for by the other, now from 2014 with the introduction of the third element to the car package, the ability to compensate with anyone of the three elements that makes up the car package is not as effective as before.
