    One would hope so. As it is MacManor is going to finish behind Sauber in points this year so they may be dumping what little revenue they make for an engine deal.

    Nobody ever said Sauber F1 was well managed.

    Sauber is on the Ferrari 2016 engine. They can never get anywhere on this. With Honda there is a chance despite slim they can get competitive one day. So it´s the right call as Ferrari 2016 is not competitive at all. It´s slower then the Honda when it works but wins on reliability of course :)
  3. Hutnicks
    Guaranteed DNF's are rarely the right call:) Renault would have been the better bet.
  4. oqvist
    Renault won´t let them get their engine and tide can turn fast. But yes everything is better then Ferrari 2016 engine.

    I slept through some but that was an entertaining race. Disappointed the softs hold up so well though the end part was not brilliant. Was just hoping the med tires at some point would get seriously better then the softs. Mercedes won on strategy but certainly have the pace.

    Incredible to see both Sauber in points. Both the top fight and the filler up fight is more exciting then ever. Only Red Bull stranded in their own category don´t look like they will catch up.

    That old Ferrari engine ain't so bad after all.
    Force India punching well over their budget here. What the devil is wrong with Williams?
    Kimi having his usual miserable luck return to him on starts.
  7. oqvist
    Its the worst on the grid otherwise its good. Thankfully engine don´t mean to much at Barcelona which Mclarens and Sauber relative success is a proof of. Also to some degree how Williams can be so bad on a merc engine.

    Oh Gawd. Just when things were getting better, Peter Windsor is back. Great now he and Bumbledoor can trade wits and no one will have a clue whats going on.

    C'mon Ch 4, do a deal with the Yanglese.

    C4 may be do doing something right, but I do wonder about the BBC - 5 out of the 7 most recent stories on their F1 site are about Alonso in Indy 500... http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/formula1

    Indy 500 has nice coverage on all F1 websites now. Indy has its own youtube channel and they were broadcasting the practice live for last 3 days.
  11. Hutnicks
    Yes something about Alonso and the Beeb just does not ring with synergy. I wonder if the Commerical Rights holders for F1 are upping the pressure for that as it's one of Chase's men running Mac now?

    Indycar racing has never recovered from their wars. The 500 gets the attention and then folks tune out for the rest of the season.
  12. Muinarc
    Not to mention the ridiculous looking "open wheel" cars with pontoon fenders over the rear wheels. The racing died with the split to CART and now even the 500 is dying (for me at least) because there's 0 innovation and complete spec-racing. Might as well watch NASCAR's brickyard race, it's pretty much the same.
  13. oqvist
    I have never seen a lap of Indy 500 :p

    Indy should really be Formula 1 rules on Oval Tracks. Basically it's GP2 cars (or worse) on a high speed oval.

    You want to compete with the big boys, be prepared to spend the money.

    Otherwise, you're competing against NASCAR which is kicking your ass.
  15. Roen
    Imagine if Vallteri forced Vettel off the track....into the inside wall on the front straight.
