hard to tell...

but I believe red bull will benefit from the new rules the most, since most of the changes are about aero, it's no surprise adrian newey will get the most from the new rules with his talents.

of course, mercedes is still the team to beat, but red bull will be much closer.

also, with the token system being taken down, renault can put full force on developing its engine.

the other team is ferrari, I am not sure how much they will improve, since the departure of james allison, they've been struggle on developing the chassis, plus the engine is also going nowhere, I am more on the conservative side about them.

lowe-leaves-mercedes-formula-1-team

so... mercedes wants bottas, but they don't need lowe, and williams wants lower cost on the engine.... plus.. bottas is managed by ace-management which, one of the partners is wolff...

although there's rumor saying wolff is leaving ace-management in the future...

however... the director of a f-1 team also have some power on the drivers market... mmm.... conflict of interest...?


since when the drivers market in formula-1 has turned into a political party....

All the aero/tire improvements are supposedly allowing the cars to take corners 40 km/h faster than last year (so I've read). Now that is something that we will notice and hopefully will help bring back some excitement to the series. Now if they could only bring back the manual stick shift........LOL.

I used to be a McLaren fan, way back to the Prost/Lauda decade.. then Senna/Prost... then Hakkinen... then starting to fade since the Hamilton years....

was excited couples years ago with the Honda....

but this is the 3rd year....

I have the same feeling as their driver.....

Still a McLaren fan. Tough days now but here for the duration.

And in the meantime, a Williams fan.
