F1 » 'Performance deficit due to engine and chassis', says Renault

At some point you have to wonder how all this is affecting the Renault-Nissan Alliance. Its a Renault branded PU and a Nissan (Infiniti) Sponsored team. If RBR were to move away from Renault Power, would it ( I believe so) also affect what has been a rather lucrative sponsorship arrangement for Infiniti? So it (potentially) further exacerbates the situation of dwindling sponsorship of the series as a whole. Or the whole thing could just be a ploy to get the FIA to step in and give them some help against the Mercedes Juggernaut. Any way you slice it its bad for the sport.

F1 » What we learned at the Australian Grand Prix

fourteenseven: Barring miracles or some bad management, Mercedes will crush the opposition some more
Or they will simply dial it back a bit to keep it close and avoid further scrutiny. At least until such time as the others truly catch up, then its a simple matter of turning the wick back up. Horners F1 Brinksmanship aside, the show is in peril. 15 cars starting, and 11 finishing a race is bad for business! Simply slowing Mercedes down won't fix that. They need a stable, attainable, and functional rules package, and they need to be willing to reach out to audiences worldwide across whatever form of media is necessary. The only way to put more cars on the grid is to attract more sponsors to pay for them! At this point they would do well to retain all of the ones currently involved. First Santander and now potentially Red Bull departing the series would be bad!

F1 » Vettel: Difficult - but not impossible - to catch Mercedes

ProfessorDave: 34 seconds behind in 92 minutes of racing is only 0.6%. I know that's still quite a margin in F1 terms but it is catch-able with an aggressive development programme.
Good luck with that. Certainly not this year, maybe next year. He acts like Merc is just going to stay stationary and not develop there package even more. Like I said maybe next year.
Ferrari do have a few more tokens to play with than Merc. so its not inconceivable, just very tough!

F1 » Vettel berates Rosberg over team-mate jibe

Maroc: ... Formula E from Florida on Saturday was 10 times the spectacle, great challenges, good over taking, I will definitely going to see it in London this year and I definitely will not be going to a F1 race this year for the first time since 1980. Hamilton only has to beat one car to win the title, and the title has already been decided, its laughable. ...
it might be a better spectacle, if your ears can tolerate it, but it's by no means a sport. You would have a better spectacle watching the grid on golf cars than those wannabe racer formula e cars. Formula E did not evolve out of any real interest and competition, it is some control freak's wet dream.
You may not like the sound but this Electric car racing is here to stay. And it will get even better next year when the regs open up a bit and the teams can do there own development. Now if they would allow them to broadcast their own motor sounds to the cars! Im

F1 » Horner calls for engine equalisation amid Renault struggles

I have to admit it is a bit disheartening to see 2 car races every round. But is it really right to hamstring a team that just got it right from the outset? The FIA's decision to go all in with the hybrid PU, brake by wire, fuel flow regulations, 4 engines per season etc etc is seemingly just playing into the hands of the wealthiest teams. Add Bernies efforts to shun any emerging media and/or sponsorship opportunities and its a recipe for disaster.

F1 » Vettel happy with rare ‘smooth Friday’

thisiscalin: Clearly there is a realistic but positive mood in their garage.They got the best driver to create that mood,focused and hard working.The results will come,question of time.I wouldn't be surprised if they are upseting the Mercs towards the season ending.
If you put any stock in the Massa interview elsewhere they are already a source of concern for Williams. No one is going to rattle the Merc's if their early form is any indication. They were miles ahead last year, hopefully that can be trimmed to Kilometers here? Kudos to Ferrari for what looks like a very positive step forward for them. Now on to Qualifying!
