Where did he change his gear box first, why didn't anyone hear about it and how come he avoided a grid penalty for it?:S If he used a new gear box here, why was it missed by almost everyone.
I hope Red Bull's wish comes true and they get Mercedes engines. This is one of those stories that's been going on for years. Firstly, Renault engine is not as under powered as Red Bull in particular make it sound.
Secondly, being the most fuel efficient engine, Red Bull and Renault are able to start a GP with as much as 10kg less fuel compared to other front runners, which is a huge advantage.
Thirdly, you don't always get a different engine and make it work like a dream, much like Brawn GP was able to do. Even if they manage that, i wouldn't care because taking on Mercedes engines would free Renault to supply engines to Williams:)
Na, i am not for it. As things are, it's quite likely they will go down the route similar to what you are suggesting. I read-that Bridgestone was looking into providing softs and super softs, which will do pretty much the same thing.
Sir Frank is a co-owner, he has always been a co-owner with Patrick Head, though the team carries his name.
Btw, that guy was Trulli, the Lotus driver in the picture.
Genius, did you also read the article " Explaining Canada's tyre strategies "
I'm sure your " regards " have been well received by Steve;)
Luca wants teams to run three cars and for good reason. Just to clarify, i was not dreaming or making up stuff, here is part of an article JA has done on the subject.
In fact, when you study the lap times, although they are somewhat erratic, Trulli’s pace around lap 39 for example was a mid 1m20, while Webber was leading doing 1m 19.6, Hamilton catching him on 1m 18.8 and Rosberg in midfield was doing 1m 21.6s.
The incident with Trulli which enraged Alonso was on lap 28 when Alonso was pitting. He had just done his fastest lap of the race to that point, a 1m 19.05, and was headed for the pits. Hamilton had pitted two laps earlier and Alonso was flat out to try to jump him at his second stop. “If Trulli hadn’t slowed me down I would have done it,” fumed Alonso on Sunday night.
“I lost two and a half seconds and when I came out of the pits I saw Hamilton ahead. Without traffic I would have had the lead.”
That lap Trulli did a 1m 24.7 and says that no blue flags were waved at him that lap.
