F1 » Honda can develop F1 engine in 2015


ProfessorX: Honda equals weak sauce. Look forward to listening to the commentators keep talking up Honda's chances after they get blown out of the water ... "when they finally upgrade their kit ..."
Is comparing power units to condiments going to be a feature this year PCX? At least the new rules give Honda more of an opportunity to ketchup....

F1 » Honda can develop F1 engine in 2015


rob01: So I take it you don't think the FIA was appeasing Ferrari. They put the worst PU on the grid. Please tell me you don't believe there was a loophole. You're very bright so this should be interesting.
Your comment that I replied to was about Newey, which has nothing to do with Ferrari. As for last season I think the Renault was the worst PU not the Ferrari unit, although the Renault unit certainly caught up during the season. As for this year I don't think anyone is appeasing Ferrari, they (the FIA) are attempting to avoid another season like last. ie one with absolutely no hope of competition. The relaxing of the PU development can assist Ferrari, Honda and Renault but it could also assist Mercedes, not everything is a conspiracy to benefit Ferrari. But thanks for the "bright" comment, heart felt I'm sure xx :)

F1 » Honda can develop F1 engine in 2015


Omnicorse are claiming that Merc will not be using the 2014 engine at the first 4 races but will be using the new engine. It also claims that... "The 2015 engine will be significantly different this year, including a new Bosch injection system capable of turbo pressure to the regulations-maximum of 500 bar. The Mercedes’ 2014 turbo was limited to little more than half that figure." Is there a point in doubling turbo pressure when they are boost limited due to fuel? Sunny?

Rob, How would Alonso know which PU was worst? He didn't drive the Renault unit. I think out of the top teams Ferrari built the poorest car but it's problems lay deeper than just the PU. Anyway I can't ask Alonso as he doesn't return my emails, I take it he returns yours? The FIA got it completely wrong last year with development restrictions, ok the teams agreed to it so it's their fault as well but to create a situation where a team could come to the first race with a 2 second advantage and nobody could do a thing about it for the rest of the year was crazy. They are going some way to try and prevent that this year by giving everyone opportunities to develop, not just Ferrari.

rob01: It for sure doesn't have two C's.
LOL Since you're here Rob I was going to ask what team you'll be supporting this year but that's a silly question, better to ask who you'll be despising the most? Your dislike of Red Bull may have reduced with the exit of your favourite finger. Your former love of McLaren must surely be on the wain since they signed a certain Spanish gentleman, again. Then we have Ferrari, traditionally a team that gives you hives being driven by the person who created your finger phobia.

F1 » F1: V6 engine ‘attracts new fanbase’


Gecko: I used to work for Ascari, and we used to run a V12 Ferrari at Monte Carlo during the invite races. Klaas Zwart
When I read that at first I thought you meant you worked for Alberto Ascari! Given that he died in 1955 you must have been an early starter! But having read the name Klass Zwart I guess you mean Ascari Cars. Nice cars what did you do there? And yes the sound of a proper race engine is a wonderful thing, if it's too loud for some stick a pair of earplugs in problem solved.
