F1 » Dennis: F1 testing too restrictive

LoveF1: In other words....I would like the freedom to spend a lot of money and throw money at this!! There will always be the question as to whether he would be saying all this if he were in Merc's shoes and dominating. He now wants to be seen to be sharing his drivers' frustrations. Did he not have an opinion when the current testing rules were being discussed and introduced?? Hindsight is always a wonderful thing....
On the subject of throwing money at F1, 6 February 2014, today Micheal Schmidt F1 writer rivals that "Honda will be investing an eye watering 100 million Euros a year into McLaren in free engines, cash and 50% of drivers salaries".
Which just about equals the loss Mercedes F1 made last year :)

F1 » Dennis: F1 testing too restrictive

Isn't it odd that since the teams have been involved in rule making, there has been a huge rise in the number of complaints about rules preventing testing, engine development, aero and tyres and all coming from the teams. The platitude that 'they all agreed to them' is not very helpful and serves to prove that perhaps the teams are not the best people to do the job. Yes, they should be consulted but not regarded as 'the only way'. Sadly, the will of the FIA to control the sport has almost disappeared.

F1 » Kvyat not concerned by Red Bull rumours

STF1: To all those who say RB have a contract til 2020 that is true but if RB choose to sell to new owners then there is no fine. My feeling is if RB pull out their sponsorship/ownership they will be looking to sell Milton Keynes and Faenza's factories to new owners to avoid paying fines.
All very well except there is no-one to buy. Who would sink many millions into a box in Milton Keynes and get a team and car together by next February? Toyota? BMW? VW? I think they'll be there next year with Ferrari PUs, probably 2015 spec but 2016 spec for PR purposes. It buys RBR time to come up with a proper plan....
