F1 » ‘Compromised’ Rosberg still expecting to beat Ferrari

Race pace will be interesting. We have seen that, since Hungary, Ferrari has multi lap pace similar to the Merc, which has better qualifying pace for one lap. Don't forget they cruise the second lap to charge their units to ensure maximum output on qualifying but must manage this differently in race trim. Laps three and four will be telling.

F1 » Arrivabene points finger at Raikkonen for bad start

Gawd, I cannot believe some of these posts! If Kimi erred, and it seems likely, it is one of a very few errors he has ever made at the beginning of a grand prix. Remember his start at Spa people? Seemed to go fairly well into the first corner as I recall. And as for resigning him for next year? Well, he out qualified his teammate and next ran from last to fifth in the race. He remains one of the very few top talents and Ferrari was wise to sign him for another year.

F1 » Renault decision due in ‘next two weeks’

As noted earlier, Autosport and other news sources are reporting that Red Bull will part ways at the end of the season. Horner's comments, if made in the past day or so, surprise me. But really, Red Bull has been clear they want out and, if Renault do indeed buy Lotus, they would want to end the RB relationship too. I think Renault is delaying a bit to ensure they receive all of the advantages that a manufacturer is entitled to before coming back into the sport. And I think Mecedes will grudgingly supply Red Bull and perhaps Torro Rosso in the interests of the sport.

F1 » McLaren keen but Button coy on 2016 deal?

RDix: Jenson has been offered what basically amounts to a blank check to join HAASF1. The team will be molded around him and development will be guided by his feedback if he accepts the offer. It may seem like a bad choice to some of you but I promise you HAAS will finish ahead of McLaren and their joke of a power unit next season in constructor points and Jenson will get a much greater sense of satisfaction having so much input into the development of a new team, more money certainly won't hurt his decision either. I doubt he forgets the way he was treated by McLaren last year so this is perfect Karma for Ron and the rest of McLaren/Honda.
How do you know this? Would be nice if it were true, but Renault is a team he drove for in the past and will be instantly competitive, if he is offered a ride with them.

F1 » Alonso: Ferrari no better than when I was there

True, and Alonso might add that McLaren is much worse since last time he was there. And he was out qualified by his teammate today. Fernando is an enormous talent, I know this, but he is used to being the centre of his universe with relatively competitive cars. I really wonder how long he will stick with this project if the McLaren does not begin to show form soon.
