MotoGP » Crutchlow: If we can alter my bike we’ll get results


Nope. Can't feel sorry for him based on his comments at season's end when he first signed for Ducati. He made it sound like he was the next Casey Stoner coming to rescue the company but instead can't even come close to competing with Dovi. Stoner? He was a pain in the ass but he got it done on the track. Brilliant rider. Cal? Just a pain in the ass.

F1 » Horner praises ‘remarkably mature’ Vettel


Strange Horner does not make the same comments about Seb that he does about Renault. Both have consistently got the job done well for the past four years and both are sub-par this year. But Renault receives scorn and Seb receives praise. "still half the season to go yet" could be attributed to Renault too but instead he says they have engine options. Should be saying they have driver options as well.

F1 » Boullier: Works engine now crucial in F1


Renault's problems this year are not engine problems. The internal combustion component works just fine. The intercooler application is not up to the standards of Mercedes or Williams but this is a team specific solution as proven within the Mercedes camp of teams. The main problems relate to the totality and integration of the various power units. This is significant because the enormous advantage enjoyed by Mercedes at the beginning of the season is being quickly eroded as other teams make major gains integrating their own units. Red Bull will win at least another race or two this season and I suspect that the total Renault package will be fairly competitive by season's end.

F1 » Rosberg: Drivers will always hide advantage


Quite early to be talking exit strategies. One DNF by Rosberg and a win by Hamilton and it becomes a very tight race once again. And with double points at the end the season remains wide open. Don't see why he would return to McLaren and don't see why they would want him when they have Button developing the car and Magnussen on the verge of being a great driver.

F1 » Horner slams Renault failings


I understand the frustration, but I do not for a moment believe Red Bull could build its own competitive engine package without considerable investment and the patience to "get it right" which would prove difficult with the current engine freeze. Yes, express your frustration to Renault but I think focusing their efforts to loosen the engine regulations for next year would be a better use of their time.

F1 » Horner slams Renault failings


Richard, I believe it could be done. However, I do not believe they or any other could accomplish this and be competitive right out of the box. Honda delayed their entry a year for that reason. They are upset with Renault after only 7 races. I do not believe they would be any more successful as an engine builder without a folk season or two under their belts. So, I question their motivations in this undertaking unless they are prepared to be a long term engine builder and supplier.
