The subsequent regulation change to a V6 design for the 2014 season reset all teams engine development...everyone started their V6 hybrid design at the same time.
The idea behind the original 4 cylinder turbo engine design was that this would bring in VW and or other manufacturers into the sport.
A plan that Ferrari were dead against because they didn't make a 4 cylinder engined car.
Mercedes wanted to stick to V8s
Renault were very keen on the idea.
Well done Senor,
The article is dated Dec 2010 which gave all F1 teams two yrs (2012-2013) to develop the 2014 spec PU.

It's as if those that claim otherwise are unlearned....ok, perhaps uninformed.

There is ZERO evidence that Max is faster than Lewis.

You can base it on historical data, current data, and even with an interpolation over car performance. Hamilton has won EVERY wet race bar one since 2013 and you guys STILL say VER is the rain-meister. This is literally insane. He has ONE wet race win since he has been in F1 and 2 good wet performances including that win.

Now on to raw speed which can be most demonstrated in one-lap performance either in the race on on Saturdays in Q3. As I stated in another post, Max has had over 20 opportunities at tracks that give the Red Bull a performance advantage in quali and over a race distance. These are facts. Yet his performance has been 2 pole positions and 9 fastest laps. This is very damning.

He threw away a race win in Turkey because he was devastated after thinking he would win pole-position and was destabilized for the rest of the weekend. He had, by far, the fastest car on race day and did nothing with it. Nothing.

I believe that Max is in the top 4 drivers on the circuit with HAM at the top. I even praised his first Championship level drive earlier this year. He was, in that win, everything a team could ask for.

I will now put on my senior management hat and share with you my diagnosis of the problem just as I would assess one of my clients. The problem, as I see it, surfaces as an inability to worry about his own game. Both he and his team worry too much about Mercedes and HAM. The first thing I would do if I were Max is insist they go to a lower rake and longer design. There is now ample evidence that it works best provided the car can be induced to rotate properly. This will also give Adrian Newey, the Aero-whisperer, more surface area in which he can work his magic. Additionally, I would get more input from the 2nd driver about the cars performance. They have gone down a self-limiting development pathway and exacerbated it by using Max only as the reference. Sometimes you go faster by moving more slowly in certain types of track situations. Most importantly, I'd scrap the company culture starting with Darth Marko and tell everyone else, including Max to STFU about other drivers and look inwards on doing those things necessary to improve himself, the leadership he evidences in the team (if any), and remove all other toxins from his influence at the track. (Jos) This would be a good start.

I look forward to you and the other RBR supporters holding the team accountable for their lack of success as we do here in the states for the teams we support.

Max is a great driver and may be a generational talent, time will tell...but currently he is no Lewis Hamilton based on actual evidence and performance. Lewis wins races he is supposed to win AND races he isn't supposed to win. Max doesn't do the former yet and definitely not the latter.

Cheers, my good friend and I look forward to more FACTUAL debate.

Well said MK,
The observation regarding the RBR's higher rake makes complete sense. And your comment re Newey's lack of results to deliver his expected aero-magic is spot-on.

Then while recently reading up on Red Bulls flexible front wing controversy, one of the regulations that was "broken" by their wing design was the minimum front wing ground clearance.
So it occurred to me how else could Red Bull get round that particular regulation and keep the aero benefits of reduced drag at high speeds that their flexi wings gave.
So....with a high rake car design, assuming you run a stiff front suspension for best grip and turn in and a softer rear suspension for best traction...then at high speed if the rear of the car is slightly pushed down while the front of the car remains stable you will have in effect reduced the angle that both the front and rear wing present to the airflow.
Even a small effective reduction in wing angles would still produce a reduction in aero drag and thus a benefit to top speed.
Thanks!

High praise coming from you. I simply can't understand the benefit they gain with high rake, unless it's as you state...they are gaining a straight line advantage, since rotation has been solved by both the W11 and the W10...both low rake designs.

With a lot of advantages .Which other teams don't have ... Approved by the FIA or not , It doesn't matter because they win all the races with the advantages of the car anyway .
And that...."THAT" makes the MERC W11 the fastest car of the decade .
The W11 is actually unbeatable and very reliable, that's what we could see in the last seasons..
Even a grandma-driver like Bottas can win races with the W11's "warp-speed-cruise-control" !
At least "IF" he is allowed to win the race ...
The W11 is the ultimate dream machine for every F1 driver in a seat ! SEB said : I would drive for free to get a W11 seat..

My statement is also PROVE and should be part to make your statement complete .

Yeah my friend inspectors...

Last year in the '19 season the FIA president Jean Todt was 100% aware of the cheating Ferrari-Jet-Mode !

Finally by the complains from the other teams , The FIA HAD TO DO "SOMETHING" about the whole situation
.
The "SOMETHING" was an internal agreement to remove the Ferrari's 5H1T !

Ferrari was never punished or fined . The Ferrari drivers ranking , victories , podiums and team rankings were NEVER deleted !
I really wonder how the rest of FIA-Clowns could be agreed with that ?

The Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA in English: "International Automobile Federation" is an association established on 20 June 1904 to represent the interests of motoring organisations and motor car users. To the general public, the FIA is mostly known as the governing body for many auto racing events, such as the well known Formula One.
The FIA :
Headquartered at 8 Place de la Concorde, Paris, the FIA consists of 246 member organisations in 145 countries worldwide. Its current president is Jean Todt the master clown !

In other words ,there is an organisation of 246 clowns who were aware of the whole '2019 Ferrari cheating !?!?
In other words : The whole FIA organisation is cheating as well !
The today's FIA should be fired ASAP ! All the clowns of the F* circus !

The saying F1 inventions ,approved by the FIA .I wouldn't trust the FIA for one second ...

No driver wins the WDC without advantages. Reliability, aero, suspension AND driver. Mercedes W11 has them all. But it is still not more dominant than the MP4/4 which lost a single race. Nothing else comes close.

And again, the assertion that BOT isn't allowed to win races. This is where you lose credibility, my friend. BOT doesn't win races because he is teamed with HAM. No one wins overall against HAM. Never has happened, never will happen. BUT and ROS each got a season off him in separately unique circumstances but I highly doubt that Lewis will ever be beaten by a teammate again, especially after the ROS debacle.

I find it also really remarkable that LeCrash and SEB never mentioned one single word about the Ferrari-Jet-Mode .

Honestly .I don't understand why ?

They were faster than HAM the GOAT ! It must have been their driver skills..

That's for sure my friend . That's why Toto said : I'll do anything to avoid another "Star Wars"
With MAX on our side : It would be the "War Of The Worlds"

Cruising with warp-speed to non-stop victories is always been easier !

Max would be HAM's worst nightmare in the W12 and it's what is badly needed for '22,for the fans and to save F1.

Only on the straights though, even then they still lost the WDC and constructors championship. MB is better at cheating.

Of course the Ferrari's ran suddenly slower at the Circuit of The Americas ..
And that ...That was really strange !

That's really irrelevant and a bit of a petty and silly condescending shot, and who cares, really? Fact of the matter is that there are too many variables, period.

You guys are just speculating and not being objective. If everything can be averaged out and 'reasoned' away, why do the manufacturers bother spending $$$ on developments trying to get a leg up on the competition?

Anyway, I don't need to be part of this silly circle jerk as many of you only have opinions and aren't stating facts. There is really only 1 way to find out. Wake me up if they (whoever thinks they are the best) agree to it.

EDIT: and another thing, you could put a complete dweeb in one car and have the 'best driver' in another and if the rest of the field conspire to box the latter in, what can he do? Cars spin out, have accidents, strategies, poor patch, oil slick on the road, bad judgement, etc etc etc, and this is all in addition to the myriad of other factors I've only touched on its surface in my OP yet many of you still think you can compartmentalize all of them and determine maybe not w 100% certainty but perhaps 90%, 80%, what? I guess you can decide that Mercedes is X% better than Ferrari and so on, etc? LOL gimme a break smh.
