Scooba0010 in another Red Bull hate post shocker.

I've honestly never seen another man get so would up about a F1 team before. It's a bit like logging into a Liverpool forum for opinions about Man Utd.

Sparky.....

You need to put that picture up your place of work

If you did how do you think the boss would react??

And the argument over better car or better engine..... its the complete package that wins the titles.

Adrian Newey having less involvement will show even more next season.

As for the engine, Renault will get some more ponies out of it over the winter, just don't think it will be enough.

Watch Mclaren hand it to Red Bull as well.

So why were Merc so adamant that the engines would remain locked

I mean , it's not like they changed the rules almost on a race by race basis when we were winning is it? Oh wait....

I think they wanted engine development locked because that was the rule for 2015, but Ferrari found a loop hole. Winning teams always want things to stay the same and losing teams always want change, it's always been the same.

LOL, how very true, Adrian Newey came up with some brilliant designs like part of the chassis would drop due to air friction heating special metal parts up so they would sag reducing air flow under the car (Not sure how true this is) and front wing designÖÖ

Every team will try to hold onto any advantage they have for as long as possible and Iím sure RBR did this over the 4 years they were very successful. You canít take away they have done incredibly well in the short space of time they have been in the sport.

They just picked the wrong engine partner

On another note, I didnít want Lewis to win the championship but he proved to be the better (Mercedes) driver. So all I can say is well done Lewis

We had a rocky start with Renault last year but, that will improve.

I'm glad lewis won, winning that amount of races and not winning the championship would have been harsh.

Lewis really matured this year, and is clearly a better driver than Nico.
If other teams cannot match Mercedes he should be in for a few years of domination.

Ricardo is clearly full of talent, a nice guy, but also amazingly quick. I know Vettel struggled to adapt to the rule changes, but the some of the over taking moves Ricardo pulled off this year sublime. He had no right to win any races this year given the advantage performance of Mercedes, hope Red Bull can give him a decent car for next year, so that he can give the Mercedes cars a challenge.

New cars do sound tame compared to the old V8s, as a spectator you hardly need ear defenders now. The F2 cars sound better, which isn't right :

The V10s were my favorite, they used to scream. Every time one went passed all your organs were vibrated around your chest

I've been waiting for this thread to come up for a while...

I was in Abu Dhabi, and I have to admit the cars sound spectacular for real, the old V8s in the F2 cars sound exactly that... Old.

Anyway, unlucky sparky. Better luck never.

Hope Ricciardo goes somewhere else so that I can support him.

Here's hoping for a quick return to the back for RB, now that Newey has got fed up.

Some people like the same old bollocks every wk horner kissing vettels arse lot a good that did him when they built a Car that wasn't up to the Mercedes he just showed what he thought and fucked off. Spoilt little brat.


I would like to see Williams grab a couple of wins as well
