F1 » EXCLUSIVE: Horner: Red Bull still Renault’s focus in 2016

Interestingly, Horner limits his comments to the relationship for next year. And he is likely correct as the Renault engine will have been built primarily for the RB chassis. It's not like a new engine formula is in the works for next year. But he should be concerned for the following years yet doesn't mention the longer term future. I strongly suspect next season is Red Bull's last season with Renault, and both parties know it.

F1 » F1 2015 team budgets published - but which team spends most?

While one can never trust the accuracy of estimates such as these, it is clear that top teams spend hundreds of millions and even the back markers spend considerable to be involved in F1. I enjoy the spectacle but really, extremely high budgets to run 3 to 6 seconds quicker than a GP2 car. F1 will likely never completely reconcile whether it is a spectator sport or a test bed for the highest technologies, whether they make sense or not. I suspect a GP 2 car with 100 more horsepower, better aero and suspension, and better brakes, would provide an equally good or better show at a fraction of the cost. Wish there was a way back to the days of sanity.

F1 » Haas hints at driver options

RDix: His plan is Hulkenberg for a year before he goes to Ferrari after Kimi's final year which will be the 2016 season. He wanted Josef Newgarden from Indycar but the absurd super license points structure looks at Indycar and DtM as aemauter club racing even though both series have more talent driving right now than they did in the 90's so he won't get a chance even though he's more talented than half the current F1 feild. Guetierez will get the second seat because Gene wants that Carlos Slim money and Ferrari owes the kid for taking the Carlos Slim money so he's a shoe in.
I had not considered the points structure. Good point. Oddly, in years past there were probably more drivers moving between F1 and Cart than any other series. A shame we are where we are.

F1 » Haas hints at driver options

JEV, Guitierrez, and Hulkenberg have been consistently rumoured and Patrick and Rossi ruled out in other media, if you can believe the rumours. Personally, I don't see Haas doing anything contrary to best performance, and he is directly quoted as wanting drivers with F1 experience. His extremely strong, and growing, ties to Ferrari suggest to me that his team would be a great team to place Ferrari talent and might be a place to park the Hulk for a year. Who knows, but I am glad that the Danica story is unlikely to happen. If he really wanted an American he should consider Joseph Newgarden.
