are they?
or did the rumours just pop up because Newey is designing an AM?

the problem is, MB isn't allowed to have more than 4 customer teams, which they currently have
so if RB wants MB engines, one of the other teams has to go
most logical choice would be Lotus, as Renault is looking into buying them
but that's a lot of criteria and a lot of collaboration that needs to happen between rivaling teams before anything like that can happen!

if either MB, RB or renault feel they're coming off worse, the whole deal will implode
and lotus may be happy they're still around! not like they have anything to say in the matter :lol:


EDIT: james allen doesn't believe a thing about it either...

Kinda feel like we need a thread where we can submit our own baseless speculation and then see if any of it ever ends up sticking :p
The Toyota 86 is not getting forced induction because Toyota are working of a hybrid version to give it more punch in the bottom end. Man all I need now is a bad render and I'll get a job at Autocar!

that's a lot of ground clearance!

and that car actually takes humans? looks so small!

Very cool concept and looks like it's actually going to go in to production. Let's see how well it works in real life conditions. It has carbon-carbon brakes and i have no idea how they are going to make those work on the road

1. Looks like huge underbody tunnels for downforce, so the ground clearance is deceptive.
2. Cockpit looks bigger than a LMP1 car's tub, and a LMP1 car can carry two people at a squeeze with some adaptations.
