Yes I read that yesterday. It’ll be difficult for them to get a RENAULT engine to be honest. I mean they’re quite a back gridder, they were only better than.. what? HRT? I mean I don’t even know how Caterham got a Renault engine. There was another article I read here in F1F that STR wants to change to Reanult from ’14 which you have already seen. And Renault wants to cut down supplier teams. Phew!
We really do need new manufacturers.
Of the current engine suppliers, I don’t think any of them needs more teams (maybe except Ferrari). Renault want to reduce their teams, I suppose Mercedes might get another team only if Force India gets Ferraris (which I don’t think will happen) and I am not sure about Ferrari
I wouldn’t be surprised if we see the entire team in a new guise from 2014. When asked about whether Vitaly Petrov could be a replacement for Luiz Razia, Oksana Kossachenko said that she wasn’t talking to the team because there is no longer a Russian presence there:
It’s been speculated that Marussia have no further plans beyond 2014 – which they are reportedly only looking to contest because of the Russian Grand Prix – and their road car division hasn’t actually produced any road cars.
