Renault: "Mercedes has the worst F1 engine in the race"

The French, very criticized for their lack of evolution during the season, say they are up to Ferrari and ahead of Honda and Germans.


Looks like a usual tonic at Renault. Every time someone questions the performance of the Viry-Châtillon power unit in the Formula 1 World Championship, Cyril Abiteboul quickly comes out in his defense by displaying internal data handled by the diamond brand engineers whose veracity, on many occasions, I might question. As his last exam on the revenue of the four engines of the 'Great Circus' in race pace. Because if it were true, it would leave the chassis and aerodynamic departments of Enstone in a very bad place.

"According to our data, Ferrari and we have the best engine in the race. Then there is Honda and then Mercedes," is the replica that Abiteboul has made in 'Auto Motor und Sport' to the comparison made by Helmut Marko in this same medium on the profitability of the propellers this season, where Ferrari was the most powerful propellant followed by Mercedes, with Honda less than 10 horses from the Germans and lastly, Renault.

A statements that have not sat well in the silver arrows, since a spokesman for the hexacampeons has responded to the Parisian engineer ratifying the classification made by Marko. "Our order would be Ferrari, then we, followed by Honda and fourth would be Renault. The differences between us, Honda and Renault are minimal already, only Ferrari stands out a little" .

It should be remembered that last winter Renault improved its power unit 40 kW (53 horses), a progress that was highly praised by all McLaren members. However, the reliability problems caused by this evolution and the little development achieved during 2019 (10 kW (13 horses)) caused that at the end of September the Woking team announced that as of 2021, Carlos's orange papaya car Sainz and Lando Norris will again be driven by a Mercedes engine, leaving the French without any client equipment on the grid and deepening a crisis where the figure of Cyril Abiteboul is more than discussed.
