click here He is saying Mercedes should not supply engines to other teams.
He did not complain when they supplied the engines to his winning team when they owned 60% of McLarean, if they thought the same way as him he would not have had an engine anywhere near as good as the one that helped him win the championship.
To be honest, I can see where you are coming from. I firmly believe though all this sharing of engines should never of been allowed in the first place. One team should have one engine by one manufacturer or they should all run the exact same engine issued by one supplier. I can't believe that say Maclaren were the prefered car of say Mercedes engines, and Torro Rosso also had that engine. Now just imagine that Torro Rosso advanced their aerodynamics or suspension packages and started beating the Maclarens. I think that Mercedes would force info sharing to ensure their prefered team gained an advantage. That's why I think it is one team, one engine or all teams the same engine. That's just my opinion though.
My dad used to tell me tails of the firemen on steam wagons raking the hot clinker onto the road and causing the following car with pneumatic tyres to get punctures. Would that be a permitted tactic...?
What he did say was that Mercedes should think carefully before supplying extra teams. That is supplying engines to more than six cars i.e. three teams, as last year, when Mercedes supplied McLaren, Force India and Brawn.
When you think each team used to use about 70 engines per year, now cut to 16 (8 per driver). Supplying several teams with a standard engine with no updates should not be a problem should it???. I think what he is saying Cosworth came back to F1 to supply customer engines and they should be fist place to call, but would he be happy with a Cosworth engine??.
