Obnoxious vs. Pretentious :confused:

I loath the way Renault is being so pompous :reallyevil:
Renault IMHO is OK, whereas F1 media - not so much.

Renault has ended months of speculation about its Formula 1 future by confirming it will be taking over the Lotus team to resurrect a works outfit in 2016.



Hallelujah.

Good to have them back as a team. Shame Grosjean left.

Still, they have some work to do. We shall see who ends up with the better engine...Renault or the Renault-Tag-Huer-Ilmor.

RENAULT TO HAVE MERCEDES-SIZED BUDGET FOR F1

http://www.grandprix247.com/2015/12/07/renault-to-have-mercedes-sized-budget-for-f1/

Renault means business, however why a French company is willing to pay British debts is not clearly understood.

200-250 is a Williams-size budget, not a Mercedes-sized budget. I gather Mercedes is spending more like $400 million a year (plus an initial investment in engine development rumored to be $700 million).

Prost is being quoted about Renault, how late in a season, even a few days before AD GP, it was expected that Ghoson shall pull plug on F1. Regarding his own association with a team, it's in "maybe" stage. Next month should give us some answers.

Several prominent names on TP short list, with Alain Prost possibly have an edge (Minnardi). I would love to see him back. One of my heroes of yesteryears, and one of the very best of all times in top class category (IMHO), for now matched only by Schumi and Senna. Fangio was living in different era, and might not matched those three guys, but that we will never know, and for Vettel racing is not over yet, thus his place in history to early to judge, however he is on right track to make it into that elusive club of greatest.

Parallel rumor has it, that Ghoson has recognized what kind of bad situation Hauk and Brawn were when Schumi came back, and when initially they have to check with mother ship on every move they wanted to make. Today of course it's gone, and Wolff and Lauda enjoy far more autonomy. McLaren emulated that management setup, and Renault apparently might do the same. At the helm then we should expect more than one headmaster. Frontline will decide on actions in real time autonomously, however, there is of course the old saying, you live by the sword, you may die by the sword.

I like it.

Crossing the line of acceptable rhetoric?

I am not sure what RB thinks F1 owes them, but maybe their early exit would have resolved number of issues in one shot.

This is the same story as on the front page of this site. Clearly these sites are all buying their stories from the same news service.

Nearly all F1 news comes from one provider called global motorsport media (GMM) :puke: . It lets Bernie/FOM control what is released :max: and is why many f1 articles are just rehashes of old stuff usually taking a quote out of context as a headline for clickbait.
Why aren't you playing for grandprix in the interforum league?
