If Red Bull don't like Renault, ditch them!

Christian Horner again complaining that the Renault is down on Power

www.autosport.com/news/repor...

If they are that unhappy, then tie up with Ferrari or Cosworth.

Why shouldn't the other teams start asking about chassis, suspension and downforce equalisation? Oh wait, then you have a spec series.

Is this another excuse coming from Horner about why the Red Bull's are not at the top of the championship despite having a clear speed advantage?

Not many cars have overtaken a Red Bull this year, so they can't be that down on power.

Arrgh!
Damn this 3 minute rule.

No, that doesn't include first lap passes.

And I meant top 3 qualifying for all races except Mark at Bahrain.

At least 1 Red Bull has been on the front row for every race and they've had 4 lockouts.

Not bad for an under-performing engine.

"If they are that unhappy, then tie up with Ferrari or Cosworth."

Horner would ideally like Renault to be given permission to adjust the engine as it is already the most drivable. If Renault equalise the power with Mercedes they will easily have the best engine on the grid.

MajorDanby, therein lies the problem.

If Renault is allowed to do that, then the other maufacturers will complain that the Renualt has better mpg and driveability, therefore they should be allowed to change their engines to match.

It is good that there appears to be a choice between the engines. Do you choose outright power (Ferrari or Merc), driveability and mpg (Renualt) or cheap & cheerful (Cosworth)?

Forza choice! Forza unpredictability!

I summerised all of their options for next year and realistically they only have one option and that is Renault

Perhaps Red Bull are hoping to get a third update of the Renault engine to aide reliability.

If only Horner and all the Red Bull drinking bosses back in Austria could have swallowed their pride and pit a Mercedes engine into those cars,

Then they wouldn't be having these sleepless nights on where,

''Will the car hold or not''

Kind of complaints!

Next time guys, get a Merc engine ASAP!

Ross Brawn has been to the Mercedes Board and said he thinks they shouldn't supply engines to anymore teams other than the three they currently do, so no Merc engine for RedBull for a few years, Mercedes aren't likely to drop Force India - the team that is currently housing one of their drivers (paul) and they're supplying Mclaren untin 2015.

doh Urrgh...not AGAIN. How many times will Renault be given extra chances to sort their engine out after getting it wrong before the freeze? Tough luck it should be in my opinion.

It's fair enough if red bull don't like the renault engines then they should replace them but maybe it's red bull's way for renault to improve them.
