I think they're happy as long as Bottas can finish second to Lewis and disrupt others. Putting in a Vettel, Danny Ric, Max or Alonso would cause a lot of issues.

It would be good for Sauber to have his experience, but no reason for Räikkönen to do it unless the money is right. Why carry on......?

As a tea kettle? Maybe, if it doesn’t run out of power from the fragile energy store...

If it were my brand, the F1 engine would have done more than 15,000 laps of Suzuka or Mr Fuji by now in the back of an LMP2 chassis, belting the bejeezus out of it at the limits of blowing up. Rain, hail, heat whatever conditions

Break it. Redesign it. Break it again. Redesign it. Break it again.

Bring the proven tool to the fight.

No more testing in public.

Tears before bedtime many times already, let alone next season..

That's what Honda has been doing since 2014 anyway.

Almost 5 years on... the Honda still keeps breaking, they redesign, breaks again, redesign again, still breaks down... and on and on it keeps going.

In 5 years, Honda still cannot get their engine to be, at least, reliable enough to last the required amount of races before penalties are applied. And then there's the horsepower issue. Made a lot of promises, but the Horsepower Option Never Did Appear.

It seems you failed to notice Ricciardo's Renault breaking down during the German Grand Prix.

Red Bull are confident the Honda is no worse than the Renault, and those are the only power units available to them.

Being the works team didn’t do McLaren much good.

Umm... the reason I "failed to notice Ricciardo's Renault breaking down during the German Grand Prix" is because when I posted that, the German GP had not happened yet, and Ricciardo's Renault hadn't broken down yet. So what point are you trying to make again??

Comparing a dungheap with another dungheap only proves that you have been in the presence of two dungheaps....

Sadly, Ferrari and Mercedes are bad sports and refuse to supply the fine team at Red Bull Racing.
