    Ross Brawn, F1's managing director of motorsports following Liberty Media's takeover of the sport, has outlined his vision of Formula 1's future. (VIDEO INTERVIEW w/Martin Brundle--14min 35sec)

    He keeps bringing up the fans with regards to noise and design.

    Mclaren lost 7 sponsors of the likes of 100 million euro's. Aside from paying for their own engines and drivers salaries, they better turn it around for 2018 and get some constructor pts. $$$$$$$ or it does'nt look good for this iconic F1 team going forward 2018/2019.

    After reading this, how can any fan question Clair Williams hiring Stroll who not only helped a little financially; but also brought in some points!

    Why good news?
    They seemed to be able to work very good together..

    Good for them, probably bad for everyone else :(
    Common doesn't mean "Come on"; "Should have" not "Should of" ;)

    they tested it in the last 2 GP's of 2017, so you can say they are ahead in that aspect. They are still up in hp but 2018 will also determine reliability as the engine and components have to last 7 GP's before swapping them out. Mid-season should tell where Ferrari stands in hp and reliability. This whole era of F1 (2014 - current) has been focused on the engine and its reliability, chassis of course too, but mainly the engine....and when the lead car gets ahead, it cuts back on power to save the engine/components for the next GP....pathetic IMO.

    Well it depends; if it,s NOT a reliable engine, then it’s good for us, and if it’s the other way around.....well u know the answer to that

    But I’m sure Ferrari has not been sleeping and I’m sure if we do another good step as we did over the winter of 2016-2017 we,ll be much closer then Mercedes. ....or let’s hope better then them

    But in all fairness we haven’t hard much news on ferrari so far, just like last year so let’s hope they,re looking something good on the back burner with lots of innovative things
    ...the new SF70H looks amazing. Let's hope it's gonna be as FAST as it looks.

    Yup, I’d have to agree with you, totally pathetic......long gone are the days when drivers would push flat out the entire race
    Back in the day when real F1 cars would use real engines, not these pathetic so called power units.....back in the day when a fresh engine would be used for qualifying alone, then come race day a fresh engine would be strapped onto the car and go flat out the whole race.

    I’m not saying that these engines are not a great piece of engineering, cause they are, they,re magnificent and they have outstanding efficiency but to my opinion they DO NOT belong in formula 1

    In F1 we need much simpler engines (v8-v10) that are much cheaper and LOUDER because that’s what every Fan wants....at least that’s what I want

    Yeah but then the advanced development of technology in F1 will cease and the championship will slowly begin to wither and lose its status as the pinnacle of motorsport.

    They didnt test new engines at all. Just parts. Also, it will be new engine....

    "Some of it is big, fundamental bits of learning, combustion progress, friction reduction, new materials that unlock areas where we've been struggling with reliability. And sometimes it's just a surprise.

    "There's still gains to be had [with this formula]. It's a plethora of marginal gains, five millisecond gains.

    [arms up in the air with shoulder shrug]

    Kvyat did well with STR then RB......no pressure....then Max came along and suddenly....PRESSURE....and thats when Mr. Torpedo got demoted back to STR.

    I don't know what to say. Then the history with Vettel, which I'm sure both drivers will work things out.

    Why am I smelling Russian money in this deal??

    He'll just be a development driver like JEV. It looks like the team prefers former TR drivers to assist with development.
