The Zengő team uploads 3-4 videos on a race weekend. After the weekend in Suzuka, a few questions have been raised. At the end of one video a Honda representative approaches Zengő and says: We have something to talk about. After a few days another video is uploaded in which the team principal speaks his mind about their options regarding next years car. There are three options: stay with BMW, change to Honda or Chevy.
In his view, the BMW still has some potential, but without factory upgrades they cant guarantee that the team will stay competitive.
The Chevy will leave the sport next year, but right now they are lightyears ahead of any brand, and there is still a long time until the cars reach the state that BMW is in now.
The Honda has just entered the series, so their car is not competitive enough just yet, but it will hang around for a long time, which suggest regular facory upgrades.
Michelisz said, he loves this car, he loves to drive this car, and he thinks it still has potential to be competitive next year, and that the factory will start working on the WTCC project again.
The main problems are:
1) The last two years the team got to know the car realy well, but there is a limit without factory upgrades, which they will reach in a short time while other teams might get better with other cars.
2) If they buy a new car, they would need a lot of time to get the same amount of knowledge of the machine, as of the BMW.
3) Buying a new car is not easy on the wallet, and as Zengő said: any parts to the Honda or the Chevy costs at least twice as mutch.
4) Now they have two cars but dont have enough money to race two drivers all season long, but if they change the car, it is not granted that they can buy two.
Opinions? Which car should they race next year and why?
