My post was about Cyrils disconnect from reality thinking he could compete with 1/3 the budget, 1/3 the staff and very very old outdated equipment compared to Mercedes and Ferrari. Even regular armchair F1 fans know this is not possible but not Cyril who is supposed to be at the top of the knowledge tree.
The fact is he has always been delusional. Yes the budget and facilities are now being upgraded but only after years and years of bashing from Redbull. What every half intelligent F1 fan knew from 20 years it took Cyril years and years to understand after Redbull had to explain it to him 100 times after then proceeding to bash Renault everyday in the media. Cyril is a very very slow learner.
Cyril is delusional and always has been. Just last year he was saying he would make Redbull regret leaving and instead the only regret is from Mclaren as they too are now leaving. Cyril has now put Renault in a position where he is on the backfoot and a mountain to climb. He has no other engine data to help engine development. Mercedes thinks extra engine data is helpful hence they have so many customers. But Cyril claims it makes no difference. Again primitive thinking and i know who is wrong again. It will probably take Cyril another few years to admit yes extra engine customers do help us. yes Cyril has made a few decent decisions with grabbing Ricciardo and updating the factories sure. All the team principals even Racing point now are massively updating facilities. Any regular armchair F1 could tell you this a good idea to keep up with the latest technology and equipment. It is hardly rocket science to know this. But overall Cyril has been a massive failure, missing all his own targets for years now and is extremely delusional i am sorry to say and always has been.
i don't see how we can know all this about Cyril. We just see him being interviewed, then obviously he has to say positive things, and he doesn't decide his own budget does he?
yes team managers say positive things. Look at Ross Brawn who set up mercedes to be the monster team they are now back in 2010-2013. he never stated he can win with 1/3 the budget. He told Mercedes they needed to invest big and updated the facilities etc to be able to win. Merc had the highest budget to win.
Newey was brought in by Redbull from Mclaren to win. He told them what facilcities and staff levels and budget were needed. Along with Horner and Marko they all told Dietrich what it took to win. Dietrich agreed to there plan and Redbull spent more than any other team in 2010 to win their first title. It was a realstic plan and it worked. Same as Mercs realisitic plan. Both teams showed incredible management to get to where they were dominating.
None of the F1 managers decided the budget like Cyril you are correct. F1 Managers like Horner and Newey and Marko go to Dietrich matesitcz and tell him this is what budget we need to win. We cannot win with less. That is what smart realistic managers do and it worked on both occassions as both these teams dominated the last 10 years.
Not once did Redbull or Mercedes say we can do more with much less and win.
Cyril actually has said on many many occasions he can do more with less. So obviously the Renault board believes him along with all his other failed targets. Cyril has missed all his own targets every year he has been at Renault going back to the massive arguments in 2015.
