The main issue is reliability and every time that either Daniel or Max want to push the RB13 it lets them down. While in performance the Renault might be able to get past customer Mercedes it certainly isn't anywhere near the factory Mercedes performance, especially when Mercedes have the dial turned to 11.PhillipM wrote: ↑Sat Jul 29, 2017 5:23 amI think the Renault engine by this point is a lot more competitive that people give it credit for, they certainly don't end up in fuel saving modes much any more, no more so than the Merc and Ferrari anyway, and it doesn't lack much for straightline speed any more either, DRS overtakes on the Merc and Ferrari are no issue any longer.
imo they are trying to turn the front of the floor into a ground effects tunnel intake to feed more air under the floor - just like the ground effects cars from the golden era of Champ Car.gridwalker wrote: ↑Sun Jul 30, 2017 8:59 amWhy are people discussing the squirt slots?
