Cyril abiteboul Plans for 2021 will entice new producers

The head of Renault's Cyril abiteboul doubt that the new engines proposed for 2021, suitable for independent producers.The idea is that independent companies such as Aston Martin, Cosworth, Ilmor were able to enter the championship on the rights of the manufacturer.But Cyril abiteboul doubt that plan will work "If the FIA and Liberty will not be able to offer an engine that will work on standard technology, so even with the extreme limitations in most areas of development, the private producers will not be able to enter the championship.And this business plan will only work if producers are subsidized by sponsors or a major car company.But this engine will be attractive to car companies. So I ask FIA and Liberty to ask themselves new potential participants what they want from the new engine".

Jacques Villeneuve does not believe in the return of Kubica

Champion 1997 Jacques Villeneuve has questioned the ability of Robert Kubica successfully return to Formula 1 next year.Jacques Villeneuve "we are Talking not only about the upcoming tests, when he will have to get out of the car with a set of Halo that is already difficult enough for a guy.How about the start of the race, when he will have to sharply deviate from other machines I doubt he can do it with one hand. From my own experience I know that it is almost impossible.I think the FIA need to think carefully about whether to allow the race pilot with an injury or not. He can initiate accidents. Kubica himself also need to think carefully about whether he wants this.It is not about playing cards, he is responsible to his colleagues. The same applies to Williams. If there is a serious accident, the responsibility will be very great."Informed negatively about the idea of the return of Kubica spoke ex-pilot Williams Juan Pablo Montoya and former technical Director of the British team Patrick head.
