No that's not the only advantage. Fuel efficiency, driveability and torque are its other advantages according to Mike Gascoyne.the one advantage it (the Renault) has:it fits the RedBull gearbox...
They've got nothing much to lose, coming from the bottom though. I think changes such as these are quite positive too, considering alot of their retirements were hydraulics.marcush. wrote:I learned in Motorsport not to be too adventureous and NOT change too much at one time,especially when you have limited recources.but who knows.
Do you really think you would be able to win both championships with a load of crap engine?? Then the rest of the car should be made of magic materials to compensate.marcush. wrote:err wasn´t the Renault engine a definite load of crap according to Newey,Horner and some forum members?The Cosworth was good enough to outscore Force India and Sauber this year who had two of the better engines according to common perception.
I´d think buying the Williams hydraulics+gearbox would have done the trick as well ...so HRT did the more efficient move methinks.
the one advantage it(the renault) has:it fits the RedBull gearbox....but then Pull rod was not an advantage as well ...so..it is the change per se that makes them quicker???

Degration is a metric few here consider. How is the power curve on your engine after a race or two?donskar wrote: At least one other important metric springs immediately to mind -- cooling requirements, where Ferrari (supposedly) has a problem. And isn't it strange that drivability/torque/"power under the curve" (take your pick) wss not mentioned? (Or is the quote incomplete?)

With a RS27, with is said to be less demanding on fresh air, an ultra compact RBR gearbox, a conventional diffuser and more time to optimise the bodywork, the next Lotus will look superb
The latter, with a simple diffuser, already produces as much DF as the T127 according to mike .
I stop dreaming. Nothing is won yet...
