Renault admits teams could run out of engines

Some Renault-powered F1 drivers could run out of engines later in 2014, the French supplier has admitted.

Renault chief Rob White said the French marque's recovery from its early-season struggle for power and reliability is still ongoing.

"At the first test we were miles off. We were in a crisis," he admitted to Germany's Auto Motor und Sport, "but we didn't panic.

"We set up a plan to close the gap. Since then we have made progress but unfortunately not quite enough," White acknowledged.

And those efforts to end the crisis have had a price, he added.

"Within the individual teams, we have consumed more components within the power unit than we had planned. It means that the teams are at different development cycles.

"For some it might be tough to stay within the allowed five units (per driver per season)," White said.

Although world champion Red Bull's struggles have had the highest public profile, correspondent Michael Schmidt claims Lotus is in fact the worst-affected Renault team, followed by Caterham.

Despite the current problems, however, White is confident Renault can continue to close the gap -- and he insists the horse power advantage held by Mercedes is not even a target too far.

"There is nothing in our engine concept that prevents us from being the best," he said.

However, it has been said that Mercedes stole a march in the fundamental layout of its V6 concept, uniquely situating the turbine and air compressors at either end of the 'power unit'.

White insisted: "It's not that we didn't think of arranging it that way. We don't consider it the match-winner."

Renault's F1 boss Jean-Michel Jalinier agrees: "We have not had any great eye-opening experience in which we had to admit to ourselves that we were caught out."

Rather, White said Renault's 2014 problems have been because "we were late to reach our goals, or because we underestimated the risks or overestimated our capacity to solve the problems in time".

Something wrong with original chassis according to Vettel

Sebastian Vettel has admitted there was "something wrong" with his original 2014 Red Bull chassis.

After Barcelona, where the German impressed at the wheel of Red Bull's winter testing monocoque, it was reported that the team had discovered a 'bend' in the car with which Vettel struggled during the first four races of 2014.

Red Bull immediately denied the report.

But the story has now been repeated by the major German daily Bild-Zeitung.

Vettel is quoted as saying: "I knew there was something wrong. I had lost all trust under braking for the corners and accelerating out of them."

Dr Helmut Marko, Red Bull's outspoken director, does not deny Vettel's claim that something was "not right" with the car Vettel originally dubbed 'Suzie'.

"The chassis was not really bent, but in some places it just was not one hundred per cent right."

Marko said Vettel will stay at the wheel of the winter testing chassis for the time being, "but soon he will get a new one".

Reigning quadruple world champion Vettel is not even ruling out his first win of the season next weekend in Monaco.

"At Monaco you don't need as much engine power as you do at other circuits," he is quoted by SID news agency.

"Maybe some rain could help us as well. There is always a chance to win," added Vettel.

Not surprising....well deserved:


Horner: Ricciardo already earned 2015 seat

Christian Horner says Daniel Ricciardo has already done enough to secure his seat for the 2015 season.

The Australian signed a three-year deal with the World Champion team after two campaigns at junior outfit Toro Rosso, with his first official podium finish – after disqualification in Australia – coming at the Spanish Grand Prix.

"I cannot speak highly enough of what Daniel has done in the first five races," said Red Bull team boss Horner. "He has done a great job and is so calm in the car. He continues to impress us with his speed and his approach.

"He is enjoying what he is doing and you never see him not smiling. It is a pleasure to have him in the team."

Making reference to Ferrari's reported quest to lure design chief Adrian Newey away from Red Bull, Horner added: "We have always believed in stability and continuity. Daniel is on a long-term contract with the team and it will be highly unlikely he will be anywhere else next year – unless of course Ferrari are chasing him as well."

Horner was also keen to make it clear that Ricciardo has been working extremely well with Sebastian Vettel.

"It's a walk in the park compared to previous years," he said. "But that is part of the challenge of being a boss."

Williams 2012 car built ground up. Time elapse photography. Amazing how many people and how much time and obviously money it takes. Too bad Maldonado thought it was a riding lawnmower.

I will always remember the 2012 season as the one that was singlehandedly decided by Grosjean. He crashed Alonso out in the first corner of 2 races in 3 and Alonso went from leading the Championship by 41 points to being behind Vettel by 1.

No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!

That was definitely a large setback, but the tide was turning by that point anyway. There's no guarantee that the title was little freddie's. I don't remember which race it was, but you could say the race that he stayed out and ran over his own front wing instead of pitting had as big an impact.

Or maybe that was last year.

It would kind of cool to see how Schuey would have done in these dominant Mercs. He was normally faster than Nico. Would MS be the points leader right now?

The tide was definitely not turning that way. Even after being punted out of 2 races by Grosjean, Alonso finished the season only 3 points behind Vettel.

They could at minimum have had something like "the Nikki Lauda Curve brought to you by "insert multi national conglomerate here". I thought is was slightly classless.

I see where you are going, but that kind of reasoning has to assume that there was *no* bad luck for RB that year which isn't the case. You are cherry picking.

And I will continue to do so. I am not alone in thinking that Grosjean lost the Chamionship for Alonso in 2012. Lots of people were talking at the time and since what could have been. Dont forget that Grosjean was banned for a race that year because his driving was so aggregious.

No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!
