Seg you cannot even see the fatal flaw in your own argument.
You quote numbers for Mercedes unit being better than the Renault unit(because newey said so right?) Yet you yourself say this....

So how can ysou make a fair comparison then?
Give me stats on the Benz V8 compared to the Renault or just give it a rest.
You then talk of locked in advantages, and how you will refer to this thread as a means of proving your argument. Well, didnt Renault get two mods to their original engines? The long shot you are taking here is most amusing.
1)that VW will enter
2)they go with Red Bull
3)They are the best from the off(with ZERO experience)
And the cherry on the cake?

Well Im not sure the mirage is in our minds, it more aptly describes a person using speculation and passing it off as fact.
The simple truth here is that neither you nor Newey can honestly say what the Mercedes can do any more than Haug or Whitmarsh can for Renaults V8.
The Red Bull chassis was brilliant, but some of that could also be due to the more compact Renault engine. Maybe the Mercedes V8 is too bulky and chassis sacrifices are needed to accomadate it. Hence why all 3 Mercedes powered teams had less than ideal chassis for 2010.
Maybe Red Bulls vast resource capacity means that even with a Renaut engine, maybe they are gaining an unfair chassis advantage that is locked in for the year(homologation of chassis tubs etc) by them going over prearranged budget restrictions for 2010?(so much over budget it has them "nervous"AMuS
There are bigger issues at hand than hearsay and cries of foul. maybe its best you see the big picture rather than focus on somthing you cannot prove.
