F1 » Mercedes set to make F1 engine freeze compromise

I imagine the engineering department have been on the phone to say they can find an extra 50bhp if there is an engine thaw. After all, any un-freeze applies equally to all PU makers. And as for "You cannot track test it because you are only allowed to use one-spec of engine only, so you have to do all the dyno running and make - in our case - eight powerful and reliable engines. This is going to cost a fortune." - pretty bad news for the 3 customers then. Of course, they could cut their cost substantially by not introducing a revised unit half way through the season. It isn't compulsory.

F1 » Horner: F1 teams not here to sponsor each other

richard: conger. you really should research the engine supply and costing dictates already in existence! mr fill. red bull is a SPONSOR! red bull racing is a TEAM, and provides no monetary assistance to str! and if you look at other teams, you will also find that some major sponsors also provide sponsorship to lower level teams. for instance, have a look at santander!
Red Bull is not just a sponsor though, it is the OWNER of both teams so plastering its name on its cars and bunging the team some money is not exactly sponsorship. I don't imagine Mercedes charge themselves for every Merc insignia on their car for instance

F1 » Horner: F1 teams not here to sponsor each other

Poor old Horner - his memory really is slipping. "Red Bull, an energy drinks company, agreed its purchase of Jaguar Racing on the final day of the sale, 15 November 2004. BBC Sport reported that Ford asked bidders for a symbolic US$1 in return for a commitment to invest US$400 million in the team over three grand prix seasons" $133m a year investment for a team 10 years ago was not exactly a struggle and the revenue from prizes became rather unimportant.

F1 » F1: Double points could ‘overshadow season’ – Wolff

How can it 'overshadow the season'? The objective is to collect more points than any other driver. Been that way for years. If one driver has more points at the end of the season than the next, he will become champion. It matters not one jot how many wins each has had. If you want Bernie's half-witted medal idea, go and shout through his letterbox. And while you're at it, add a bit about how stupid double points are. Will we get more changes next year like quadruple points for the last race and half points for any race in a country with an A in its name?
