Torro Rosso




Horrible but atleast all the cars will be different. Will be interesting to see what nose they will all be using at the end of the season

tbf its not the end of the world, the main thing is that the cars are going to be harder to drive which should make for much more interesting racing, they're all new at every point so its a more level playing field at this stage

Plus, as long as it's exciting racing with some car failures and some mardy drivers who really cars :lol:
Having a push to pass system that is even more powerful than last year is comical.

Just give them boost controllers in the car and allow them to choose what boost level they run during the race. No need for any artificial tools to create passes.

It was an ERS failure for Vettel and now the Caterham has had one as well. Looks like we might have some fragile Renault power this season.
Last time Button had 22 on his car he surprised everyone by being quick in testing and look what happened that year.

It's no longer a push to pass, it's all in the engine programming (from what little I've read). They do have boost controllers too (hence the max and average fuel flow limits) so we should see people running out of fuel too when "Strategies" go wrong. All things that are likely to make Alonso/Hamilton/Vettel cry on TV
