Renault have given Red Bull a May deadline to decide which engine they use for 2019.

Horner is saying they have options for 2019.

Renault have a contractual obligation given to FOM when they negotiated their deal to return as a team. Nobody is going to let them vary that. All the choice is with Red Bull.

Be a major gamble to take a Honda supply, unless they make huge strides in the first couple of races.

Alonso gave serious thought to quitting F1 before the 2018 season.


Fernando Alonso: "Yes, I did think about the possibility of changing series and stopping Formula 1.

"After I did the Indy 500 last year, when I came back there were a couple of races in Austria, Silverstone, when I thought, 'Maybe next year I could try a different series; I could do full commitment to the triple crown and do Indy and Le Mans and maybe that's the best thing.

"But I felt it was not the time for me to step out – not right now, not after these results, not with this feeling.

"I knew I would regret it for the rest of my life and that I would have this bad taste for the rest of my racing career.

"So definitely I still want to succeed. There is unfinished business for me and McLaren together.

"And I think this year is the time all these things will change. I feel pretty sure about that."

If the troubles from testing continue, will he be regretting his decision by midseason?

How galling will it be if the Toro Rosso's are finishing ahead of him?

Let's see how much of a fuss is made over this one. I'm guessing not much because he's off to Ferrari. A broom and a rug please.

It’s already causing controversy with McLaren claiming that this is not right

There should be a fuss.

How far can't this go? What if Charlie Whiting received a compelling offer from one of the teams?

Being right and Ferrari do not go hand in hand. Never have. Never will.

Boullier: “Ferrari went against the gentleman’s agreement, and the FIA has not enforced it.”

Lol, exactly on what basis could the FIA “enforce” such an “agreement?”
