Of course, he is dissatisfied with the current situation in his team.But Red Bull is still a very strong team, and even in these difficult times it is unlikely that someone will leave her, especially as Adrian Newey is at the peak of his creative activity. There is no engine that can bring the chances for the title, so of course the situation is frustrating in the long run.Red Bull always had a lot of patience, and now when needed, they suffer. It's a tough time, but you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Honda, running in the Toro Rosso, is the beginning.I believe in Honda, which has a sports culture in the company, the resources and now the team with the mentality of Red Bull.I can imagine that Honda will return to its original shape and build a top-end engines.We must wait the new regulations on the engines. This Aston Martin has the resources and capabilities to do this I don't know, but I doubt it. Red Bull do not get hung up on this company".

Christian Horner Formula 1 at the crossroads of choosing a new engine

Head Red Bull Christian Horner believes that Formula 1 is facing a serious choice in which the championship should help the Formula. Christian Horner "a Whole galaxy of brands rushed into Formula E, and this gives us a chance to return to the classics of the engines of Formula 1 in the future.Formula-E - platform for the development of future technologies. Porsche, Mercedes, Renault, Audi, Jaguar is much more manufacturers than Formula 1.The cost of the work in the Formula-E is now 5 percent of the budget in Formula 1, so I can imagine that manufacturers of machines for the masses are in the Formula, such as Ferrari, Aston Martin and Lamborghini, pay attention to the Formula-1. This is their place.So I see that the championship is at a crossroads. If you believe a policy, we'll all be driving EVS in 2030, so the Formula-1 should be pure racing, a competition of the best pilots in the world with internal combustion engines.I conducted a survey on one of the forums fans of Red Bull, and all welcomed my opinion when I said we want to go back to V10. I doubt we'll do it. We have to settle for bi-turbo V6, but the sound is the key. Of all critics of the current engines the most important thing for fans is the sound.

Martin Brundle, the New leadership will change this world

The ex-pilot of Formula 1 Martin Brandl believes that the new leadership of the championship will help the Royal race to ascend to a new level of popularity.Martin Brandl "I think Formula 1 up to this point relied only on their own history and the legacy of the past.

So I think with new media and many other aspects of the championship will be able to access new opportunities and achieve new heights of popularity.Bernie Ecclestone has done a lot right, made a lot of money and popularity for the sport. But when he came to new technology and a new era of technology, he just hid his head in the sand. You can't do that, because we live in a different technological and information world that does not see Ecclestone".

I remember the days of blown diffusers when Red Bull could take almost any turn, sinking the gas pedal to the floor.Then there are new hybrid engines, which do not sound as good as I would like.New cars will have more downforce and tyres that are 25 percent wider than their predecessors. The car will also be wider and slightly longer. It will be a monster on wheels. But give us an interesting race - we'll see.The braking distance will be shorter. More traction means that drivers can slow down on four or five meters later. It also means that pilots will have fewer opportunities for overtaking.View, perhaps the race will turn into the drive one after another for one and a half hours".
