F1 » Dennis’ dig at Mercedes F1 engines


sprulz: .. But I fully agree with fullofit. It is an odd coincidence that they suddenly built such an amazing chassis after all the crap post-2010 and suddenly hit a deal with Merc a couple of months before 2014. It is an odd coincidence that this team is partly owned by Toto Wolff and that his missus got a serious F1 drive despite her poor (mediocre at best) performances in DTM. And presto! The team is SUDDENLY 3rd in the WCC! .... (I also find that Williams is the only customer team to have that big fat Merc logo plastered on their drivers' uniforms, just sayin')
Well I think its a coincidence that Williams went downhill when they appointed Sam Michael as Tech director. And since he left for McLaren, Williams have gone forwards and McLaren backwards. And if you havent noticed the huge Merc logo on the Macca and Williams drivers' right shoulder, you need specsavers.

F1 » Dennis’ dig at Mercedes F1 engines


rob01: The engines are sealed and distributed to Merc teams as they request another. No difference to what any of them are getting. The only real thing missing is support or knowledge of how to make it work optimally with mapping and the other components. Did Ron really think he would be getting that?
Ron has been waiting for one of the Merc drivers to publish the data on their twitter account.

Rayzerp2:
EdOz: And this is why I believe Williams will struggle to win a Championship even if they develop a car on pair with the Mercs... it would be like a satellite Honda beating HRC on MotoGP. The factory just won't let it happen.
Given the wilderness they have emerged from, being anywhere near such a position would be a huge step for Williams who were staring into the abyss not long ago.
Yes, but they pushed Parr and Michael into that abyss and then look what happened

F1 » Alonso: I’m the F1 decision maker


richard: negotiations with vettel would have been going on for six months or so. it is not just a sudden decision. so ferrari were obviously wanting vettel rather than alonso. they are also reputedly paying vettel double of what alonso was getting. but alonsos sniping at ferrari over the last few months was probably as a result of knowing that he was on the way out. merc didnt want alonso, but were happy to be chasing vettel. that must say something. if ferdi is to go to macca, it will be at a far reduced salary, and he will have to mend bridges with uncle ron!
Only if there is an uncle ron still there.....

F1 » Alonso: I’m the F1 decision maker


Objective: The word that is doing the rounds is that he signed a $50 million contract with Honda on Friday night. Ferrari apparently refused to match the offer and nabbed Vettel while they had the opportunity. Alonso was never in the frame for RBR. I did expect JEV to get the seat so Kvyat's promotion was a bit of a shock.
Well, 12 hours before your message the Daily Mail (paragon of truth and fairness) reported "Sebastian Vettel has left Red Bull and will join Ferrari in a deal worth about £50million-a-year, making him the highest paid driver in history." Note that is 50m pounds, not any low value $ and also that the source was the Daily Fail. The Telegraph reports 3 years at £40m/yr. Whatever the real figure is, these figures are pure conjecture.
