The Formula 1 Stuff Thread

I just don't see him getting the Merc engine. I'm sure Red Bull will be trying to get it, Haas might try but who else would have the money? It will be going to the highest bidder you'd think.

Ferrari engines are maybe the worst ones to have, and expensive.

Renault would seem most likely, but they already have Lotus, RBR, Caterham and STR.

If Red Bull got Mercedes engines, as unlikely as it sounds, then Haas will get Renault IMO.

It would be pretty poor of Red Bull to leave Renault after one bad season since Renault dedicate themselves to Red Bull the most.

Yeah I don't see it either, but Red Bull will probably review their options if Renault don't improve by the end of the season

What are the odds/possibilities of another manufacturer entering the sport? I ask because Stewart-Haas Racing is a GM-backed team. Chevy also started making engines for IndyCar a couple years ago, so I wonder if they have any interest in expanding to F1.

This is purely fantastical thinking at this point, just curious to know if it's possible.

@Syngamer I don't think so, but speaking about another manufacturer, there were some new rumours about BMW a few weeks ago...

That would be interesting. My fear/suspicion is that Haas will be a dud the first year or two, IF they make it to the grid in 2015.

I can only imagine the Americans being all like "Hell yea boyyy, and we'll make a 6.5L V12 Triple Turbo Engeene for that sucka." 

Then somebody tells them it has to be a 1.6L V6 Hybrid Turbo: "Wut... Are they gay or sumthin'? And they turn right as well as left?"

It must be the time for a 2015 Driver line up prediction! 4 races into the 2014 season...

Red Bull: Sebastian Vettel, Daniel Ricciardo
Mercedes: Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg
Ferrari: Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen
Lotus: Romain Grosjean, Pastor Maldonado
McLaren: Kevin Magnussen, Stoffel Vandoorne
Force India: Nico Hulkenberg, Sergio Perez 
Sauber: Esteban Gutierrez, Sergey Sirotkin
Toro Rosso: Daniil Kvyat, Carlos Sainz Jr
Williams: Valtteri Bottas, Felipe Massa
Caterham: Marcus Ericsson, Will Stevens
Marussia: Jules Bianchi, Max Chilton
Haas: Alexander Rossi, really have no idea
I agree on everything , except Will Stevens in the Caterham. I'd say it'll be a cash strapped driver like Cecotto and for the second Haas seat I'll take a wild guess and go for either Nasr or Coletti

Keith Collantine has literally no sense of humour. Some guy had a rant about the new style Formula 1 on F1Fanatic. I said "Somebody get this man a Snickers" and my comment was removed.
I knew before he was an uptight control freak, but going through the comments and deleting any that don't relate to Formula 1 is just nobish.

Let people have free speech!

Red Bull may use Cosworth if they come back in?

Haas: Alexander Rossi, Adrian Sutil

That is what I think. I don't think there will be many changes to be honest. I think Haas will pick up Rossi and Sutil. I don't know if Sutil would go there or if there is even a chance of it, but you never know.
What engine will Haas use? I'll say Honda or Ferrari - just a shot in the dark but I can't see what else they'd use.
yeah I agree I don't think we'll see the end of button yet not sat least for a couple of seasons my guess would be Honda for Haas given  McLaren are the only confirmed users of that engine right now

I'd guess they'd stick with Renault rather than go to Cosworth :p

It's already been posted that McLaren will be the only team to have a Honda engine in 2015. Haas could get one for 2016 though probably.
