F1 Fanatic - Cristian
Mine is quite evident actually, it’s me at my favourite’s band (AC/DC, obviously) first and (still) only concert in my country.
A bit difficult to tell at the moment, but I believe so. I’ve always liked Rosberg more than Hamilton, so i might be a little subjective here, but Nico just seems so be more of a racing driver than Lewis is…I mean, I look to Hamilton and a I see a brand and I look to Rosberg and I see just a driver, a really fast one. Still, Lewis has a title and a lot of wins and podiums and poles and Nico dosen’t (yet). I guess we’ll see…
I think I would much rather like to see Hankook (as they are doing quite a fine job in DTM). Again, I’m for multiple tires suppliers, honestly.
I though Michellin business with F1 was ove, after what happened at Indianapolis 2005 (even tho they competed in the 2006 season, as well). I don’t really think the fans or the press or the teams or actually anybody will be happy with such a move…
And, @Aish Heydrich, that was my first thought, as well :).
That sounds fairly right to me. Clearly the Renault engine isn’t fit for the already weak FW35, so Mercedes power might be a smart move. Also, I’ve heard that Renault’s 2014 engines will be the most expensive on the market, at around 25 mil and as Williams’s financial status isn’t exactly good, the less-expensive (yet still as good, I believe) Mercedes engine could solve that problem. And the, we have to consider that Merc will lose a team as of 2015 (when McLaren switches to Honda) and supplying Williams might be the key to keep the a certain equilibrium.
So, there you go…a lot of reasons why this could (and should) happen.
