Featured Renault unhappy with new Super license points system

    After news of the latest FIA Super License points system was revealed earlier this week, Renault has immediately given it's response to the system by requesting to speak with the FIA about the ranking of their respective junior series.

    Both the World Series by Renault and Formula Renault 2.0 series received poor ranking points in their opinion and want this to be ratified before the start of the 2016 season when this system comes into place.

    Renault are upset that competing series such as GP2 or FIA F4/National F3 series have been given a higher prestige within the points system than their own series. This will therefore seriously threaten the grid sizes of both series as young drivers will bypass the various Formula Renault 2.0 series and World Series by Renault for these other series.

    Considering the amount of money Renault have invested in both series they will want to rectify before the points system comes into place in 2016. Alongside requesting talks with the FIA Renault has contacted teams within both series stating "will take all the opportunities to defend our championships." This could be a long running story during 2015 as Renault and the FIA attempt to find a solution to this problem.

    FIA in self interest shocker! Poor form I think by the FIA in this, how many drivers and teams have built there careers on the back of Renaults motorsport involvement? I can understand why they are upset.

    Renault have been the cornerstone of single seater racing for decades, when other manufacturers have come and gone they have stood firm in offering affordable (if your loaded) racing. To then say these series are not rated as high is laughable considering how many top line drivers started their career in Renault junior categories.

    Ludicrous. Just see the list of previous winners or top-runners in Formula 1 and it you see how nuts this whole idea is.

  5. They have already killed F3000, you don't really see many names pop up on F3, GP3, and GP2 has been a bit of a joke as F1-feeder for many years now, etc etc etc.

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    Agree 100%
    FR 3.5 has every bit of credibility that GP2 has.
    What it doesnt have unlike GP2 is Bernie Ecclestone and Flavio Briatore as its owners.

  8. The monopoly continues to expand.

    Time to get some fresh blood in Bernie's place - somebody that will fight for the betterment as the sport as well as being profitable - not just the latter.
