F1 » Furious Vettel fumes at Pirelli after tyre blow


Yup, Can't agree with him on this one. Years ago, Kimi's tires fell of the cliff and he lost positions to the sudden deterioration of his tire. The complaints from the teams demanded a tire that did not fall off the cliff but degraded much more gradually, inviting teams to push them for many more laps than they were designed. Vettel and Ferrari gambled by pushing these tires to this degree and it appears the thread bare tread remaining separated from the carcass, causing the sudden failure. Don't think it had anything to do with Rosberg's failure, and I cannot remember the last time a Pirelli had a sudden tire failure. Wish someone from the team had got to him before he talked in anger.

F1 » Button will be smiling at Spa whatever happens


A great circuit indeed! I remember Villeneuve's massive crash exiting eu rouge a number of years ago. The drivers of the day were saying you could, on occasion, remain flat on the throttle but it was very challenging to do so. Today, drivers run the corner flat without trouble, underlining the negative impact the increases in aero downforce have had on the sport. Hopefully, F1 will act on its desire to dramatically remove aero and increase mechanical grip, making tracks like Spa, Monza and Suzuka truly great once again.

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.
