    Renault aiming for race wins in 2011

    http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/88905

    I think regular points finishes are realistic with some podiums achievable. But race wins? I think the leading teams would need to have all had disastrous races for this to happen.

    Outcome of the Pirelli 2 day/night test in Abu Dhabi

    http://www.jamesallenonf1.com/2011/01/pirelli-is-ready-for-formula-1-says-confident-de-la-rosa/

    http://www.planetf1.com/news/18227/6673500/Pirelli-happy-with-wet-tyre-test

    IMO, the crucial information that seems to have come out of this test is that the front tyres for the harder Pirelli compound are stronger than the Bridgestone front tyres were in 2010.

    Schumi and Massa will be happy to hear this and they will no doubt be the most keen (of all F1 drivers on the grid) to see for themselves whether this is really the case when pre-season testing gets underway in February.

    http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/88985

    Pirelli will be carrying out its own tyre testing programme this year: in Istanbul, Barcelona, Bahrain & Abu Dhabi and is hoping to tyre test in Monza and Spa-Francorchamps as well. Plus, if teams request it (due to a specific problem), they may also tyre test during Friday Practice during GP weekends.

    Pedro De La Rosa rules out driving for HRT

    http://www.planetf1.com/news/18227/6673665/HRT-not-an-option-for-De-la-Rosa

    He's 39. He didn't impress in the chances he has had when in a racing seat in F1. He still doesn't seem to get it. His finest contributions have been as a test driver. I think PDLR won't get more than a test driver or reserve driver role in 2011 and beyond.

    Re: 2011 F1 Pre-Season

    While Group Lotus is seeking summary judgment against Team Lotus/Lotus Racing, it turns out that this may be just one of the problems that Group Lotus is facing - the black and gold livery of Lotus Renault may contravene the anti-tobacco advertising legislation.

    http://www.planetf1.com/editorial/6678650/Kramer-Versus-Kramer-Again

    I think the situation is really so messy that it will confuse the average F1 fan.

    Group Lotus is a sponsor only of the Renault car (Renault engine and chassis).

    Meanwhile, Team Lotus/Lotus racing is a constructor (chassis only) using an engine provided by Renault in 2011. They ditched the Cosworth engine they used in 2010. So there could be 2 teams called "Lotus Renault".

    The whole situation is a dog's breakfast IMO

    Re: 2011 F1 Pre-Season

    The most bizarre story I read today - Renault says Kubica is like a diamond but they want to 'polish' him. Huh?

    While Renault has enjoyed success as engine supplier to Red Bull, they are lucky to still be competing in F1 as a chassis constructor. Renault F1 is lucky to have a driver like Kubica.

    When Toyota and BMW left F1, everyone thought Renault would do the same. Well, the Renault name stayed but the team is not owned by Renault anymore.

    Kubica could drive for McLaren, Ferrari ... any one of the leading teams. The fact that he is spending valuable years in his career remaining with Renault is IMO an act of faith and generosity from Kubica.

    I think Eric Bouillier is talking nonsense.

    http://www.planetf1.com/news/18227/6672723/Renault-look-to-polish-Kubica

    Kubica is a good friend of Alonso. Kubica wouldn't go to Ferrari while Alonso is still there. McLaren are happy with their 2 former World Champions in their driver pairing. Mercedes has Schumi and Rosberg and they seem happy with their line up too. So Renault is the next best race seat available to Kubica. That's why he is still there.

    Re: 2011 F1 Pre-Season

    Martin Brundle says he never clashed with Jonathan Legard. I believe him. Brundle is too smart to fight openly with Legard. My assumption is that Brundle didn't need to. I assume he just spoke to the producers of BBC F1 coverage and expressed his view that Legard had to go.

    Re: 2011 F1 Pre-Season

    Hulkenberg rejected a race seat at Virgin Racing. I think he is making a mistake. His manager, Weber, wanted a race seat of at least the same level or higher than Williams. There isn't one. Renault confirmed Petrov would keep his seat.

    Hulkenberg may find people quickly forget you in F1 if you have no visibility.

    http://www.planetf1.com/news/18227/6673281/Weber-Hulkenberg-turned-down-Virgin

    What made me wonder is that Weber said that 2 Germans in Virgin Racing (i.e. with Timo Glock) would be too risky. Why? Don't Hulkenberg and Weber think Hulkenberg can outperform Glock? How's that for confidence!
