F1 » Renault ‘holds up hands’ for poor reliability


107SS2009: The funny thing is that Renault is recognised as having been the prime pusher of the new power unit controlled development programme and the token system. Their reliability problems needs no tokens to solve, tokens are there to develop the PU, reliability solving needs team work and above all money to spend, both of which seems to be in short supply.
Absolutely. Renault was one of the engine suppliers that threatened to leave F1 if they didn't get their beloved hybrid V-6 P/U instead of the V-8. So the fans got what no one asked for and Renault is getting what they deserve for hoisting this crap formula on the fans. How's that money saving new formula working out for everyone Renault?

F1 » Button: More power won’t make McLaren front runner


More word salad from the back of the grid. Honda had a whole year of unrestricted development to get their P/U, at the very least, to be reliable. There is no excuse for this shoddy level of reliability coupled with this little horsepower. Even the pathetic Renault P/U makes more power. McLaren had a year to get their aero package and chassis ready for the Honda P/U. A lack of down force when they have their own wind tunnel? They should fire the entire aero staff if the problem is down force. Both Honda and McLaren look pretty foolish in this mess. A piss poor P/U coupled with a low down force car gets you exactly what McLaren has shown. The most expensive back marker on the grid.

F1 » Force India switches to Toyota wind tunnel


And with Haas F1 joining the fray in 2016, and with Haas being the sole owner of one of the only full size wind tunnels with rolling road technology and 180 mph wind speed capability, (the Windshear Tunnel) how much is Ferrari set to gain? Haas is going to be running basically a Ferrari customer car in 2016. That cozy relationship didn't happen by accident and being able to give back to Ferrari this kind of telemetry on their own car in Haas colors can't be under estimated. Ferrari might have just moved from having the worst wind tunnel in F1, to having access to a tunnel and telemetry no one else is even close to.

F1 » F1: Vettel set for Red Bull swansong


JoeKlip: I think Vettel best days in F1 are behind him. Without all the superior RedBull aerodyanmics and chassis balance, Vettel is not the same driver since.
This is going to be an interesting journey for Vettle. I don't think Ferrari are currently capable of delivering Vettle a car he can challenge with. I also don't think Vettle will be able to extract as much out of the awful Ferrari as Alonso has. It doesn't look like there is going to be any meaningful unfreeze to the P/U development for 2015, so Vettle and Ferrari will still be 70HP behind the Mercs with terrible aero to boot. Yep....going to be interesting. Probably not successful.....but interesting.
