F1 2016 Discussion Thread

Honda have announced they will be making a "Massive" leap forward to be closer to Ferrari and Mclaren next season, also rumours Sauber are going to using a Honda engine from 2017.

Wonder how Haas will get on, mainly using Ferrari parts, they should at least give Marrusia someone to race

What are Marrusia being rebranded for 2016?

Force India are rumoured to be becoming Aston Martin

I'm getting dizzy from all the snowflakes flying around.

It's a huge commitment! They are already cashing in 'some' money. It seem that bernie was desperate to keep them & RedBull in F1. Reanult has now "historic" status just like ferrari & mercedes.

In light of the talks, Autosport understands Renault has committed itself to F1 for nine years, through to the end of the 2024 season, receiving an advance payment for the first sx years, and retaining all of the historic rights.

I thought they'd already agreed to have a Renault engine but follow their own development path?

I can't see this happening - can you?
One part of FCA group vs another!
Unless this time the threats are real. Not that we have not heard them before mind.
Ferrari threaten to quit F1 as sport races towards epic power battle | F1 News

Alfa Romeo to return to F1 and Ferrari leave to WEC?

It seems that silly season has arrived early!

But it won't be one part of FCA vs another next year as Ferrari is fully spun off. That will leave FCA without an F1 presence or R&D.

Sorry. Distribute the rest to FCA shareholders. So Ferrari effectively becomes and independent company.

What everyone said. Piero Ferrari will own 10%. 10% was sold off and the remaining 80% is to be equally (depending share quantity I guess) distributed amongst existing FCA shareholders.

Odd because currently an FCA share is $13.71 and Ferrari $48.50. I know little about how it all works but do wonder how it all distributes with such differences? 1:1??

Yup, no more Chain I'll wager.

BBC to end Formula 1 television contract early - BBC News


"...and welcome back, while you were away, Alosno span off and collected Rosberg. Vettel performed an audacious overtake on the last corner, and Maldonado crashed on the pit straight which has brought out the safety car, where we rejoin the action."
