Looking at the picture, it appears that the end plate of the right wing is scoring the tyre! Not good for longevity!!

Renault have looked pretty quick here in Q3; Hulkenburg in 6th is much better than they achieved back in Barcelona. Looks to me like their new parts may have worked.

A lovely tribute to their debut back in Britain in 1977, too, because they have apparently decided to run a one-car team as they did back then!

teabagyokel What I meant was that they didn't want Buemi, but Sainz, which is why they aimed for Ricciardo this time to get Sainz, as Red Bull would always offer them a driver who is not as important to them.

Yeah, hence why it's a cheek for Red Bull to offer Renault their own driver.

The biggest pity about Sainz going is it keeps Torpedo in Formula One.

I think the concern is very justified. The man is privy to very sensitive technical information from ALL of the teams. An individual with such info would confer an enormous advantage upon any team that he would work for. Three months is an entirely inadequate amount of gardening leave for someone in such a position of trust.

IMO, if the FIA hopes to keep the trust of the teams, and doing so is essential to the survival of the sport, they must impose a gardening leave period of between 12 and 24 months on any individual in such a sensitive position.

One of the main reasons why they're all upset, because they either didn't make the move to sign him or he didn't want to sign for them.
Now, they should just get on with it.

After raving about Hamilton for one fifth of the show, Mr. Kravitz finally got around to speak about the Renault case and said that Mr. Budkowski had visited Mr. Horner/ Red Bull factory just one week ago and gained an insight into what they are doing for next season... ROFL
I applaud Renault for this signing.
