    Default Ferrari will not supply engines to Red Bull

    Ferrari is rumoured to have made a decision not to supply engines to Red Bull, but they are willing to supply Toro Roso with previous years spec engines. If true, Red Bull could be without engines for next year.

    what a remarkable situation where the engine technology is so esoteric, that even Renault, with all its experience, has failed to keep up.

    It appears Red Bull are back in talks with Renault...

    I'd love to be a fly on the wall in those negotiations...

    If Renault buy into Lotus, will they want to supply Red Bull?

    that's what i was wondering.
    still, contrary to my earlier ponderings, perhaps it really significantly helps to defray costs if an engine manufacturer can sell engines to other parties?

    Bernies has floated the idea of Red Bull using a modified version of the last generation V8's. He didn't say which one or who would make it.

    Aerodynamic is a big part of today's F1 cars. Engine size/shape dictate much of the rear end design in relation to aerodynamics. If they don't have a engine sorted out soon, it may be too late for them to design the car for the start of next year.

    I could have told them that already. Been trying to buy a Ferrari engine for my Renault for ages

    Reports are that Ron Dennis is preventing Honda from supplying engines to Red Bull also.

    Looks like it's Renault or nothing for RBR?

    Business or overt conspiracy? Or is it just sport?

    They are only looking after themselves, none are concerned with whats good for the sport. One day they may kill it if attitudes don't change.

    Maybe that's why Bernie is selling up

    The amount of money floating around Formula One doesn't have anything to do with sport. It's just about money. Bernie has had no other interest.
    Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone............

    That's debatable he has been known to associate with a number of "ladies" as well.

    IMHO, "one day" is already here. I have only a passing interest in F1 any more and yet once was an avid follower and late night viewer even before it was possible to record the middle of the night action and replay it a civilised hour. It may be age but watching a "race" where only 4 out of 20 starters have a realistic chance of a win is no longer my idea of fun. I do however continue to follow Moto GP. At least all the rule changes there have not totally reduced the competition to a couple of teams. The racing is closer and passing is possible. The ratio of skill to engineering is more balanced. Bernie and his cartel of self-interested overloads see it only as a cash cow.
