Do a marketing deal with a manchester company so the full name of the cars can be the Red Bull Sheet.

Red Bull Powered by one of those French engines I guess they'll need to do something or Newey won't have time to draw the new chassis.

They've already made 4 different versions of their 2016 car ready, so it will accommodate ANY engine they can get their hands on....


The lulz are strong

Anyone going to the first race of the season? I'm making plans to do a solo trip to Melbourne for my first overseas Grand Prix.

The government being the equivalent to US Republicans hate the 'Socialist' BBC and are attacking its funding.

Sport is expensive and so with severe pressure upon BBC finance it is an easy saving to make. Cameron and co - Trebles all around.

Kevin Magnussen seems to have secured a seat at Renault for this season in place of Maldonado who has run out of money:

http://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/magnussen-renault-f1-deal-done-claim-sources-670758/

Renault will hold a press conference on wednesday so it should be officially announced there.

This would be quite a positive turn of events for Kevin, driving for a factory F1 team instead of doing endurance racing for Porsche. But this time there will be no excuses. He will have to consistantly outpace Palmer if he wants to stay in F1.

I just hope Renault can get their shit together within a reasonable timespan. They have already said that 2016 will be all about rebuilding and restructuring but that they want to race for the championship within 3 years.

Maldonado confirmed he was out of a drive in a tweet or something so I think Magnussen is in for sure as they say in F1.

finally!! justice! out with the money, in with the talent!

i don't think renault will achieve anything, or even try to achieve anything in the first year
they're stuck with a chassis developed for a merc engine (on a tiny budget as well!), and now they have to bolt a renault in the back

i think they'll just be making up numbers in 2016, and after the first race of the season, all their resources will go to the 2017 chassis...
