F1 » No Renault token use until Russian GP


I dont understand the plan but i guess that Renault are focussing on 2016 at this point, leaving red bull out to dry for 2015. Renault probably have decided that red bull aint worth providing constant upgrades. Renault buying lotus in 2016 seems to be the paddock news even confirmed by grosjean. but still delaying engine development im not sure is a good strategy even for next year. either way i just want a strong renault engine ASAP for better races

F1 » Arrivabene: Ferrari never expected Hungary success


The answer is very simple. Everyone has good chassis. (Ferrari redbull and mercedes ). It is the engine which isnt great for ferrari and red bull. In tracks with low average speed ,energy recovery and other complex systems are of less use (see kimi s statement that even without mguk he was ok in most places except straights ). Hence ferrari are as good as mercedes and redbull. If it is a 150 mph average speed track engine once again rules. We will see mercedes cars (even ones like lotus and force india with an ok chassis eating up ferrari and redbull ) Its been like this from start of season. Except for nico and lewis having a bad start (or mercedes has a start problem) nothing has changed. Mercedes will fix start issues in next one or two races

F1 » Arrivabene: Ferrari never expected Hungary success


Even ferrari and redbull currently agree that their power unit is the weakest link. But on days like this when they win, they would like to forget that weakness for a while and celebrate. I would do the same too

F1 » Raikkonen: That’s luck, that’s racing


I agree. If it was only five laps or so kimi could have continued but 20 laps is asking for trouble. Enough with jules accident. No running on track if the car isnt trouble free

Greg Campbell1:
HairyLuthier: I don't understand why they brought him in. When Raikkonen's MGU-H failed he was losing 4 tenths a lap. If he had stayed out he would have still got a points finish.
Mmmmmaybe.... W/o the kinetic harvesting to help slow the car, the (tiny) rear conventional brakes tend to self destruct quite rapidly. The driver can 'manage' them to a degree, but only at the cost of going even slower. And even then, the brakes will eventually fail completely.
