    Looks like Magnussen might be headed to Renault...
    Maldonado's oil $ may have dried up... and does Renault even need it?

    According to reports in Spain, the 2016 McLaren-Honda will be boosted by 223 extra horsepower this season after the Japanese engine manufacturers found a breakthrough solution to their 2015-long ERS flaw. 

    According to Spanish publication As, 'the new Honda will have 223 horsepower more than that of 2015. Last year the combustion engine had about 70 horsepower less than that of Mercedes and also had to make up 163 horsepower from the energy recovery system (ERS) which could barely be released, unlike the other cars, on the straights for 33 seconds per lap.

    'In Sakura, the Honda factory in Japan, they have been working 24-hour shifts – and didn’t take Christmas holidays - to solve the problem and, in summarized and basic terms, they have increased turbo by sacrificing other parts of the power unit that have minimal impact and by relocating the ERS cooling system.'

    Something is up for sure. Want to be true so very much. I guess we'll find out in a few weeks.

    There is nothing I would love more than seeing Alo stomp all over Mercedes and Ferrari next season.

    Seems like Manor is signing all sorts of heavy weights in last few weeks. Will be awesome to see if they come up the field this year.

    Allegedly, the stunt organizers needed approval for driving of vehicles on the slopes outside the normal routes or fenced areas because of the potential to cause damage to natural state of the area. The fines could top 30,000 euros (approximately $32,450).

    I'd rather see a clear canopy (jet fighter style) than that design.

    Something about being able to exit car fast in case of fire kinda causes issues with that.
