Those are not same profile jobs. Though I think there is a good chance either Symonds or Allison will return to Enstone.

Fred was great in lower categories and he'll do a very good job in Formula 1 too in the future if he comes back, but I think the timing for him to take such a role in 2016 wasn't the best. Big brand coming back to F1 and building a team, people moving around, new rules etc.

Props up for bringing Hulk aboard.

Don't think Symonds will join Renault. I would love to see Paddy dressed in black & yellow though :)

Paddy go to Williams, or not?
If he moves to RF1, that will be big boost and surprise.

I agree that Fred was amazing in lower categories. Symonds has to rest for a year (like Paddy) as well?

Renault announce that they don't need a Technical director at the moment and will revisit their position should it come to that.

Renault's F1 managing director Cyril Abiteboul says the team will not be hiring a new team principal following the departure of Frederic Vasseur.

Vasseur and Renault mutually parted ways this week after just one year together, smoething the Frenchman put down to the lack of a coherent vision for the future among senior management. Vasseur joined as managing director in early 2016 before being made team principal in the summer.

Abiteboul does not feel the team principal role is a necessity in modern Formula One.

"We will not replace Fred in the capacity of team principal," he said. "If we feel we are held back by not having a team principal, we will take action.My belief is that the team principal role is something you need from team to team. If you compare Frank Williams, Monisha [Kaltenborn], Vijay Mallya and Christian Horner defining it is so difficult.

It would be nice to see a third team up there to mix it with the Bulls and the Arrows.
