    Renault's issue is they're so obviously holding out for Alonso. Anyone decent might be put off by the high chance of being sent packing in October.

    I thought the interesting quote was that others were "unavailable" - almost seemed like a dig if anything?

    Remember when Mercedes chewed through tyres then had those 'Illegal tests' with Pirelli?

    We mustn't wish for Mercedes demise to much otherwise where will we be? Not even a Ferrari walk over, simply back to a Vettel domination period. I hope Mercedes get their act together, a few more duds and the championship will effectively no longer be a battle.

    I think it's far from over, Merc still have a phenomenal car and allegedly the best driver. Just because they are used to having it their own way and suddenly have a competitor, shouldn't be confused as being the underdog IMO.

    Merc and Lewis have been preaching from their pulpits about having competition, battling Vettel in equal machinery - well they've got it now.

    yeah, though I don't think either is as happy as they said they would be. I knew Ferrari would make more gains than Mercedes PU wise, but I didn't expect it to be so much, or that Mercedes would stand still.

    thats nice, gets a go in the car he missed out on. Imagine what he could have done in it in place of a rusty Kimi

    I saw that elsewhere the other day and it was taken relatively recently. The angle makes it look worse than it is, but it's still significant.

    Considering this happened, being back in the 2012 car is quite a brave move.
    I hope its an inspired one.
