I could see a diesel waiver allowance without much issue. It'd need to be a pretty small diesel, though. Maybe a 1.5 turbo diesel in order to compete with 2 liter NA.

The thing is, if you allow the manufacturers to dictate too much of the rules, they end up controlling the series. You have to find a breakover point where you tell them to pound sand, even if it means they walk away.

I recognized it from the F1 calendar, but couldn't pinpoint which one it was.

Nice call.

It's because Renault isn't even remotely connected to the RBR cars, and there's something weird that goes on if you change the name of your powerplant in the middle of a season, or from one season to the next, regarding your prize money.

There was a reason that Sauber was called "BMW Sauber Ferrari" for a season. It's something to do with not being eligible for an entry the following year, and not allowing you to receive your prize money for the current year.

Because Infiniti is just a title sponsor, they can call the team "Infiniti Red Bull Racing Renault" and continue to use their existing entry without applying for a new one.

F1 is weird.

The 356 was nice, I'm sort of surprised it was a no-sale.

I'd like to have a police car 356 Cab.
