F1 » Ricciardo, Kvyat penalised for Red Bull home race


What an excellent idea to batter popular, under-performing teams. That'll keep the fans flocking to the circuits and tuning in on tv. Even if the Renault and Honda supplied teams didn't get penalties, would they suddenly improve? This philosophy of ' your team is doing very poorly so we will hurt you further with race penalties'. is not going to improve their competitiveness but then that won't bother Mercedes or Ferrari who have sewn things up very nicely. Some other series had similar problems (motogp, BTCC) and dealt with things by some radical rule changes which have led to them becoming more popular with fans, more competitive and more attractive to new teams entering. F1 had the radical rule changes but they got it horribly wrong and until they realise this, the fans, sponsors and potential new teams will lose interest and the money will drift elsewhere.

F1 » Red Bull dismisses bid for Ferrari engines


Mishka: This reinforces the argument that Red Bull team is a just drinks manufacturer and not an automotive racing team. Prime focus is to have a high speed advertising board. I used to feel it was just sour grapes from the other teams, but now.... They have no heritage and will leave no legacy. They don't seem to possess the culture or philosophy of a team worth supporting.
No legacy? How many other teams have ever won 4 consecutive WCC titles? (Clue: Ferrari, McLaren and Williams.) That's a legacy

F1 » Button may run short nose, but expects penalties


ProfessorX:
Flyer0: I don't think it matters too much which nose they run its not the answer to all their problems.
yeah, maybe their 'powerful' MGU-H will come to their rescue.
I believe they may be working on an additional propulsion unit powered by Boullier's hot air. Mind you, even if they got it right the Mercedes MGU-TOTO would blow it away (and be fully within the rules, of course)

F1 » Imola return to save Italian Grand Prix?


Even though they spoilt the parabolica by tarmacking over the gravel trap, Monza remains one of the best tracks in the world. All these shenanigans though just look like a replay of the recent German GP saga so I expect Bernie to leave it off the calendar for a year. And if he does, may the fleas of a thousand camels infest his *insert appropriate body part*

F1 » Button: Don't discount our background developments


107SS2009: My opinion, Cosworth entry will be as per Honda but with 2016 rules, Honda entered under the 2015 rules, an engine produced by Nissan will be regarded as a new engine and that's what the name will be. a new engine, but Renault cannot manufacture an engine and brand it as Nissan, manufacturer entrant will have to comply with the rules at the time entered.
That's broadly what I thought. Its quite a disincentive for any new PU maker to enter now with the token reduction year-on-year when you start part way through the 'project'. And that's not good for the sport.
