Had to laugh when I read that Renault are expecting an immediate gain in performance with their new fuel to be introduced in Spain.

Red Bull, with their refusal to use the recommended by Renault Castrol / BP fuel and oil wont have access to this. McLaren will as they followed Renaults recommendation.
(Red Bull are the only team to not use the same fuel as their engine manufacturer. Mercedes insist FI and Williams use Petronas as Ferrari do with Haas and Shell) The engines were designed and built around the use of their recommended 'liquids'. Seems like a no brainer to use them. But Red Bull know better.

Renault is expecting its Formula 1 engine to get a performance boost from next week's Spanish Grand Prix thanks to an upgrade from fuel supplier BP.
The works team and McLaren will have access to new fuel at Barcelona, but Renault's other customer Red Bull will not.

Renault I think will look better with McLaren in 2019. They will do well this season, especially their works team, but donít expect fireworks and donít expect RBR to always be up there the way things are

Honda have somehow have created a completely free hype machine... everybody seems convinced that they improved massively in Canada when there actually was no indication of that whatsoever. In fact, Renault was the one with the big improvement, comfortably beating Force India.

As usual with these sort of things emotion and ego go before facts. Red Bull will not win a single race again from 2019 until the new engine regulations if this is true.

Toro Rosso with Renault engines finished 7th in the WCC last year.

The Honda showed the biggest improvement in Canada rather than the modest Renault gains.

IMO switching is a no-brainer. At worst will still be the third best team, can get STR to trial stuff on-track for them and get paid instead of paying. Also get an additional PR machine behind them who doesn’t have their own team.

Team A dumps engine X and goes with engine Y.

Team B dumps engine Y and goes with engine X.

Team B beats team A with the engine they dumped!!


Possible scenario for 2019??
