Well they're well prepared and practiced if there are reliability issues with their engine!


Definately seems like Redbull can’t get any worse with reliability. Wonder how many races will mad max keep his cool lol....

I really do hope Honda does well. You don’t wanna see a big engine manufacturer struggle in F1. It will prevent other companies from wanting to try.

Or hopefully make them better prepared and not come in earlier than they wanted by being pressured by the team...


Good point as well, that whole situation was a weird one to say the least. Personally I would love to see more manufacturers in F1 but it won’t happen. Especially with the teams all changing their tune on the upcoming engine rules.

I thought this news article on Motorsport.com was particularly interesting.

Max Verstappen claims the Renault engine is "the slowest out there". Considering the data Red Bull must have gained from Toro Rosso, one could read into this that Red Bull racing seem to think that Honda has already surpassed Renault when it comes to performance.

On the other hand he might just be refering to the top speed, but it is an interesting quote nonetheless.

Typical Verstappen attitude, but the guy does have reason to be livid after another engine issue. Battle of the engines in F1 is one the things I look forward to in F1 but in the same regard when a manufacturer supporting serval teams falls behind the sport loses a bit of its shine. By that I mean we have top tier drivers just driving fast but not racing. Or not driving at all because of faulty equipment. Yes, it is a part of Motorsports but the sport does suffer because of it.

Reading recent reports from Renault it seems the latest reliability issues are down to Red Bull's packaging demands, which amongst other things means they can't use the latest MGU-K (I think). Which doesn't sound too dissimilar to some of the stories of the McLaren-Honda difficulties. I wonder how short this honeymoon will be...?

Much as I believe Renault I wouldn't blame them for blaming Red Bull whatever given what they've put up with over the years
