Renault are throwing more money at the problem so hopefully we'll see some strides being made.
But what intrigues me is that out of the last 30 seasons in F1, only one team has won the championship not being affiliated to a manufacturer. That team being Brawn. Both Williams and McLaren had close ties to Honda, and then Renault and Mercedes respectively.
Red Bull must now clearly see that, and it is irrespective of the engine rules which they'd have you believe.
They need to bag a manufacturer, or make an engine themselves. Waiting for this miraculously stupid alternative engine will guarantee one thing....a manufacturer exodus.
