Just a quick question:
I read somewhere (think it was on AMuS) that the installation of the Renault C-Spec engine is very complicated, the packaging is a nightmare and costs are about 1.00.000 $. Why are Red Bull even thingking about testing the engine in Monza when Renault themself is unsure about reliability and saying themself that packaging is a nightmare? Isn't Red Bull helping a competitor with this? Is it the data of the C-spec engine they're after?
They've already tested the engine on the dyno. The Spec C with the Exxon fuel maximizes performance. RBR take the calculated risk to just get a few podiums.
Since RBR has to change the lot they decided to take on the full Monty. Spec C engine with the new MGU-K and a (total) repackaging of all components.
Yes, it also helps Renault to have a guinea pig, but RBR can afford to take the risk and focus on winning single races this season.
Guess everybody (the whole field) is curious what the Spec C combined with the new MGU-K will do.
