F1 » ‘Below par’ Renault accepts it has ‘moved backwards’


107SS2009:
Googolplex: What I find extraordinary is that some people at RBR seem to think that after the first race of the season publicly humiliating Renault is good for business. How on earth is slagging off Renault at the start of the season going to lead to a good outcome for RBR? I think it is more a case of hubris and overinflated egos. Very disappointing.
Googol, As I said elsewhere, RBR truly shoot themselves in the foot several times. Any news from out there about the Sauber/GvDG disput? Rumours circulating out here yesterday said the dispute has been settled at a cost to Sauber of US$16M.
Sunny, BBC said it was reputed to be 15m Euros. You probably know that.

F1 » Vettel: Difficult - but not impossible - to catch Mercedes


richard:
Googolplex: Contrary to Richard's myopic view, Seb jumped ship last year because he finally realised he had little influence on the car's performance. However, if you insist on that theory Rich, you presumably will also acknowledge Lewis's influence. Since he left Macca they have gone down hill and Merc have gone to the stratosphere.
thanks to nico and also the work that schumi did! and even then he did nothing in 2013. the difference came when there was completely new rules which lulu did not influence in any way. vettels success came in a stable formula.
Thanks to Webber's good development work. :)

F1 » van der Garde reaches agreement, takes parting shot at Sauber


It is true that the two decisions of the Supreme Court of Victoria (at first instance and on appeal) were purely concerned with enforcement under the International Arbitration Act (Cth), but the legally qualified arbitrator with vested jurisdiction, who considered the evidence the two parties sought to adduce, determined that GVDG had a valid and enforceable contract. That determination has never been set aside. How anyone can claim there was no valid contract in light of that binding decision escapes me. GVDG has now said: "We have reached a settlement with Sauber and my driver contract with the team has been ended by mutual consent" To agree to terminate a contract involves an implicit acknowledgment of its existence and validity. Otherwise, there is nothing to terminate.

F1 » Only a matter of time until Ferrari catches, says Wolff


richard: benignly. first of all it was marko who said that would have to assess their position in f1, not horner. secondly, it is horners team, arden, that is the basis of rbr. thirdly, didi, marko and horner are the owners of rbr, so you cannot just say one should go. in my opinion, the mess is all renaults fault. they want out and as rbr are the only customers that they have, then they are not being overenthusiastic about improving the situation. i think it would make them happy if they found a reason to close shop. last year, they were talking about selling off the engine factory, and there were rumours that red bull could buy it . it didnt happen, but...watch this space...
Richard, All the shares in Red Bull Racing Ltd (RBR) are held by Red Bull Technology Ltd whose shares in turn are all owned by Red Bull GMBH, which company is controlled by Mr Mateschiz. The directors if RBR are Mateschiz, Marko and Horner, but the shareholders are the owners.

lol. yes webber developed the car so well that seb came from nowhere and trounced him, not just once but 4 times ! :D
Yes, to borrow from your reference to Nico as developing the Merc, the good development driver does not always make the best racer. I suggest you will see Lewis beat Nico more easily from now on, just as Seb did to Webber.

F1 » German Grand Prix officially cancelled


theeagle: Bernie saw to this and to ensure that foreign tracks (outside Europe) can get the races they are so desperate to stage. Only confusing and baffling issue is why Germany of all places (in Europe). Germany bailed out (Banks) Ireland, Greece, Spain etc, why cant they stage their own GP?
Somebody has to be responsible with their money. Why do you think they have the ability to do all those bail outs?
