F1 » Red Bull engine crisis worsens after Ferrari 'rejection'

And today's puzzle is... Ferrari cannot supply RBR because "they do not have the logistical or technical capacity to give 2016 engines to Red Bull in addition to their other two customers" Mercedes cannot supply RBR because they were "not set up" to do so. Both teams are able to run a third car next year if required to do so. How to they intend to power them?

F1 » Ricciardo sceptical of Red Bull-Renault reconciliation

janhein: thank you richard. i remember this going on. are you also baffled by the fia not acting? .
Why should the FIA act? Mercedes are happy, Ferrari are happy. They can supply the other mugs, ...err teams, with their old tat preventing any real competition and are quite likely to be able to run 3 or more cars soon to tighten their grip further and get an even bigger share of the loot, especially as RBR have been effectively castrated. Honda and Renault have both been kept firmly in their place and no other PU maker is likely to appear. The future is very rosy for SF/MB - unless those pesky kids at FI and Sauber can get the EU to impose some sense to spoil their party.

F1 » Ricciardo sceptical of Red Bull-Renault reconciliation

George Zaidan: I wrote the same thing awhile back, Richard didn't agree.
and i still do not agree. the contract is a two-way contract, and failure by bernie and his team to ensure that the rules are upheld and that a top spec engine has to be supplied, could well mean that bernie will have to actually pay rbr compensation! however, i would be reasonably confident that bernie, in an effort to ensure that he gets the best price, will broker some sort of deal. rbr leaving would cost bernie a billion or two.
If the rules state a 'top spec engine has to be supplied' then Williams should claim compensation immediately for having sub-prime units supplied all this year.
