Vettel's too polite to be Lauda. Lauda's best feature is what an arrogant prick he is.

I'm not going to lie the most exciting prospect of Renault buying Lotus is the revival of the Prost v Lauda rivalry in "Old man who you're not quite sure what he does in the team" form.

Pretty sure the veto is in Ferrari's Concorde agreement, so it wouldn't matter what Todt/Bernie does.

In Kimoa we believe that, regardless of what occurs outside, life is what happens within. Freedom is a state of mind, and limitations are too. We always chose freedom. We believe that if something frightens you a little, but it makes you happy, you should go for it. That's the essence of adventures.

i mean, if you want to get autistic about it, they're not TAG-branded engines. TAG doesn't own TAG heuer anymore.

This also means a year of people mis-pronouncing "heuer"

bernie and Todt just got given absolute power with the mandate to kill the f1 commission and all the working groups, remove Ferrari's power of veto, decide on the engines and to set the prices for them and to have the technical rules rewritten. The screaming I can still hear from Italy and Germany would suggest otherwise.

I've read that the Ferrari veto is legally binding and they can't remove it. Or something.

Do we know the details of the Renault/RBR split engine wise?

My guess is that the Illian-based changes to the block is what Renault and RBR can start working from, but everything else will be designed separately? Is RBR going to manufacture their own blocks, or will they be supplied from Renault/Infiniti/Nissan still?
