Obec'o sam deci :P pa da otvorim temu za ovu godinu!
 

Honda is targeting the podium for 2017.

That is despite the fact that Fernando Alonso has never ruled out the possibility that, after McLaren-Honda's struggles in 2015 and this year, the title remains a goal for next season.

"Everyone has improved a lot in the year, both at McLaren and at Honda," said Honda's F1 chief Yusuke Hasegawa.

"We have shown some good results, but in the end I am not satisfied with the results we have," the Japanese told Speed Week.

Indeed, McLaren finished the season sixth, with Hasegawa hinting that the rise to the very top might take the Anglo-Japanese collaboration a little longer.

"A podium would be a good result," Hasegawa said. "And also a realistic goal, even if there is still a lot of work and some unknowns regarding 2017.

"For example, we do not know where the other teams are in terms of performance. The key is time," he insisted. "We need time for success."

However, Hasegawa said he is happy with McLaren's 2017 driver lineup, with rookie Stoffel Vandoorne to replace the retiring Jenson Button.

While highly rated, Belgian Vandoorne is largely untested and new McLaren CEO Jost Capito says retaining Fernando Alonso beyond 2017 is a top priority.

And new McLaren executive Zak Brown has made a point of saying the door remains open in the future for Lewis Hamilton, whose relationship with Mercedes appears shaky.

Hasegawa, meanwhile, backed Vandoorne.

"Stoffel has shown that he can fight," he said.

"Normally, a new driver is a risk, but Stoffel is talented and calm. We have no great concerns about his performance as he has proved his talent already.

"The biggest problem is when a driver wants to prove something, but I want Stoffel to do his job and not put on a show. We have to make him feel good.

"This will be very important," the Japanese said.

 

To sto Hasegava-san prica se poklapa tu negde i sa mojim ocekivanjima, otprilike da budemo negde gde je Fors bio u sezoni 2016 - dakle, iza "velike trojke" Mercedes, Red Bul, Ferari, ali ipak pri vrhu, regularno u Q3 i u bodovima i uz par osvojenih podijuma.

 

E sad, da li ce to biti dovoljno da zadrzimo Alonsa - videcemo. U slucaju da on ode imperativ je dovesti sampionskog vozaca za 2018. Onoliko koliko nam u periodu 2015.-2017. sampioni nisu bili potrebni (a imali smo ih dvojicu) toliko bi, za slucaj da uhvatimo prikljucak sa samim vrhom, oni postali neophodni od 2018. i nadalje. Videcemo, mozda je Stof taj buduci sampion, no da se na vreme radilo na tome on bi sada vec mogao da bude na pragu svoje trece F1 sezone. Momak nije nista manje talentovan od Maksa.

 

A ko zna, mozda stvarno pukne tikva izmedju Merdze i Hamiltona, u kom slucaju se ovaj mozda i vrati, jer jedina druga opcija mu je Ferari a ne cini mi se da su oni dugorocno perspektivniji. Sada trenutno da, zato sto je kanal iz kog se cupamo zaista jako dubok (zahvaljujuci klovnu Araiju), ali nakon 2018. vec nisam ubedjen da ce Ferari imati prednost...

 

No, bumo videl'... :)

Meni se cini da je zamena hamilton-fetel najrealnija. Toto i drustvo u nemackom timu sa dva nemca, svetska sampiona, zvuci jako dobro.
Sto se mclarena i honde tice, bice zanimljivo, svakako. Ja sam ocekivao da cemo do kraja sezone prestici force indiu, jer nisam ocekivao da ce oni ulagati u stari bolid, nego da ce svu snagu usmeriti na 2017. Ipak, to se nije desilo i force india je jos uvek bolja od nas, ne previse, ali ukupno gledano bolji tim.
Hornerova ekipa bi mogla 2017. da bude najveci pobednik. Jos uvek ne deluje realno da mercedes bude pobedjen, ali ovi ljudi znaju posao, a znaju i u renou da prave sampionske motore, pa ako ima neke sanse da se 2017. mercedesu stane na put u makar cetvrtini trka, red bull je prvi koji bi mogo do tog rezultata.

Izgleda nista od BP sponzorstva?
 

Red Bull and ExxonMobil
December 1, 2016 by Joe Saward
 

 

I think it was back in Austin that I first mentioned that Red Bull would be getting a deal with ExxonMobil, to replace its partnership with Total. It has taken a while but the story has finally been confirmed, the date is obviously part of this as December 1 is often a contractual cut-off point for deals and so we can expect some more stories to sneak out in the days ahead if anyone, for example, has an option on an engine deal for 2018, which must be taken up or dropped, and this sort of thing.

I am still expecting to hear that Renault has done a big deal with BP, as the McLaren deal announced some weeks ago seems to be only a fuel and lubricant partnership and not a sponsorship. I believe the proposed BP-Renault deal will be for about $35 million (which is a big deal these days) but it is rather complex as Renault and has an ongoing agreement with Elf (a division of Total) until 2019 for Renault to recommend the use of Elf lubricants to its whole network and customers around the globe. Renault has promoted Elf oils in its road cars for decades, while its F1 cars also carried Elf sponsorship. This changed in 2009, when Elf logos were replaced by Total. The problem is that it seems that Total has decided to stop all sponsorship in F1 in 2017, what with the oil price and falling revenues. Renault wants money for F1 or freedom to have another partner. This is taking time to sort out.

Stoffel Vandoorne has admitted he is unlikely to be in a position to win races straight away in formula one.

Although several years older than Max Verstappen, Belgian Vandoorne is already being compared with the young Dutchman as he prepares to make his full F1 debut for McLaren-Honda in 2017.

"That's normal, although we are very different," Vandoorne, 24, told Belgium's Sporza news agency.

"We have different characters. Many enthusiasts are looking forward to a fight between us, and hopefully it will be for victories."

When asked if that wheel-to-wheel for victory might happen as soon as 2017, Vandoorne answered: "Why not, but it will depend on the car.

"It probably will not be enough, but we will take big steps forwards.

"Technically, the team has some difficult seasons behind it, but next year looks positive even if it remains difficult to predict.

"Probably we will take a big step forward, which is also what we need. But if we will be able to fight for victory, I cannot say yet," he added.

Meanwhile, Vandoorne ruled out any suggestion that he might be an outside contender to replace the newly-retired Nico Rosberg at Mercedes, after Toto Wolff made flattering remarks about him recently.

"I have a contract with McLaren-Honda and I'm super happy about it," he said. "I am focusing now on next season and not thinking about the other teams."

Jost Capito: McLaren to part company with F1 boss after four months


McLaren are set to part company with their new Formula 1 boss Jost Capito less than four months after the German joined the company.

The 58-year-old started in his role as chief executive officer of McLaren Racing in September, having been recruited by chairman Ron Dennis.

But Dennis is on gardening leave pending the end of his deal next month.

And Capito, too is now on his way out, having been viewed as Dennis's man, BBC Sport has learned.

Capito is still an employee but is no longer working day-to-day for the company.

When asked about this situation, a spokesman said: "I'm not going to talk about that."

Capito was unavailable for comment.


The move follows the recruitment in November of leading F1 commercial expert Zak Brown as McLaren's new executive director.

Brown and chief operating officer Jonathan Neale have been tasked with running the McLaren Group on a day-to-day basis.

In a separate development, long-time McLaren marketing chief Ekrem Sami has had his position as a director of the McLaren Group terminated.

Sami, 62, has been a long-time close ally of Dennis, for whom he has worked for nearly 40 years.

Dennis technically remains chairman and chief executive pending the end of his contract next month but no longer has an active role running the company. He is also a 25% shareholder in McLaren Group.

In Dennis' place, the company is being run by an executive committee formed by the other main shareholders - the Bahrain sovereign investment fund Mumtalakat, which owns 50%, and TAG's Mansour Ojjeh, who owns 25%.

Once Capito's departure is formalised, the most senior person at McLaren's F1 team will be racing director Eric Boullier, who was brought in at the start of the 2014 season after Dennis ousted his former friend and protege Martin Whitmarsh from the positions of McLaren team principal and chief executive officer of McLaren Group.

The Frenchman, 43, will report to Brown and Neale.

Eno tamo sto je Stof izjavio. Verovatno velik korak napred, ali nedovoljno za pobedu u nekoj normalnoj trci.

 

Rano je jos za neke detaljnije price o tome, sacekaj da pocnu testovi. Sve pre toga je cisto nagadjanje i gledanje u pasulj.
