    I really like the red bull team. Max is awesome and I have always liked Perez. But for some reason I can't stand Horner.

    Really? This Horner has always seemed such a Flake. Just find another car manufacturer and actually build a relationship with them, to match Newey's designs.

    So is the story here that honda is leaving F1 engine development? It seems electric will overtake petrol right around the time this engine is ready.

    Really cannot be more happy to see someone investing so much in F1. I can really admit that backdays after their title run I did not had much hope they will still here, fighting more than ever and even build own engines! Not my favorite team, but full respect!

    I was 100% against sprint races. Then I was confused and thought they were going to have sprint race at Algarve and I was excited! It means knockout quallie is on Friday and then racing on Saturday. It's more racing and it makes Friday relevant to the weekend. I hope they make all races like this now! I predict it will be a raging success!!

    I'm a Mercedes fan, and having a strong nemesis always makes the victory much sweeter, more deserved. As Bottas beat out the field today, I hadn't been excited for a pole sitter since Stroll took in in Turkey. There's real competition from RB, and as much as I love to hate them, I do wish they'll give my boys a hell of a fight. So, good luck to Red Bull, may they be strong seconds :D

    I think I might not completely understand some of this F1 terminology. At 0:55 he says that Ferrari and Redbull will be the only ones to have end-to-end integration of powertrain and chassis. Does that mean that other engine manufacturers have those divisions separated?

      @David David No worries David :), I understand what you mean mate. The only thing I'm concerned about with F1 is that the UK & Europe are pushing for the ban on IC engines for 2030, which could mean an all electric powertrain possibly like F-E?. I only hope Exxonmobil and Porsche can push forward the synthetic fuels r&d for the next regs in 5 years time. I don't want an all electric hybrid powertrain and 4 cylinder engines like Mercedes are doing with the new C63 AMG

Don't make me wrong I welcome ( I 've worked with plasma coatings operations for Praxair and GE)any new creative, innovative engineering to this level are a more than benefits. Without F1 or any other high level sports (drones racing included) humanity would be very far from where we are now.

      ​@David David RB, Merc, Alpine, Williams employees are mostly British, nothing wrong with that. Who are the most accomplished engineers in F1? Newey, Lowe, Allison, Brawn, James Key - all brits my friend, the current crop of new engineers in British teams are all young British people - go visit McLaren or Merc Brackley tour days after covid, you'll see for yourself like I did in 2018. As for materials, I don't understand what you mean, composite production in the UK is aerospace quality in automotive sectors - we even manufacture Airbus CFRP wings in Wales., McLaren pioneered nano matrix resins, BAR Brackley introduced carbon gearbox cases using Toray T800, Red Bull carbotanium, Flowvis, CFD, Mclaren Atlas fly by wire telemetry [1993], CVT gearbox [Williams 91], honeycomb, active suspension, Beryllium - all developed by the British. F1 parts are all manufactured in house via CNC 5 AXIS, topology optimised 3D printing, composite parts are manufactured mostly via Mitsubishi Japan prepegs, electronics are all in house as well - why do they need to outsource? We wouldn't have carbon fibre chassis, semi auto gearboxes if it wasn't for Gordon Murray and John Bernard

      @msagoo29 where do you get parts/ high qualitymaterial? And skills? Uk only? I have 2 friends woking on F1. 1 from Europe another from Middle East. Imagine the quality of materials, skills and experience a group like Red Bull required for success. Not in the local mechanic, software, ... British apprenticeship scheme.or local shop for high standards quality materials. There "might" be but its going to cost more time and money than other F1 team. Uk, these days, is a bad bet. Sorry buddy. But one government after the other. The country brains, skills and manufacturers have been sold out.

    Building your own bespoke F1 engine in house? Man, it's a long list of people who have tried and failed this past 40 years. Even Ilmor had a long period of marginal results before they were eventually injected with Mercedes money. However, that being said, Red Bull have deep pockets AND they're a true front running team, so the chassis won't be holding them back.

      Unless something dramatic happens, they'll still be using ICEs when the new engine regulations hit. F1's focus is on using synthetic fuels to minimize the carbon footprint, instead of entirely new tech.
