the First official session of the Brazilian GP 2015 Formula 1 quite normally. Expected rain, but it has left the session of free 1 and free 2 played with dry tires. For morning in classification is expected to rain, although it is not certain and it could appear at the end of the session, or once you are finished. As you know, the rain is quite linked historically to the GP of Brazil, and although he has appeared at the end of FP2, it has been very shy.
in general the sessions have been quiet, without too many incidents with the exception of a few passes of braking and runway excursions without importance. Less tranquil is the view of the paddock with some rumors and breaking news, as the Red Bull team. Christian Horner has confirmed that they have signed up to participate in 2016, so left and threats of leaving F1 and will be safe next year.
Without leaving the Red Bull team, it seems that Toro Rosso will end up leading Ferrari engine and Red Bull will continue with Renault engine. It looks increasingly evident, and in addition Brazil will test the new engine of Renault in one of the Red Bull to determine the improvement that has of course the 11 tokens spent by the group in gaul. What is not clear is if the part hybrid the will develop the French or the Red Bull team.
as for Renault, it also seems that your offer of purchase of the team Lotus go ahead and lack the final signature and to confirm this as it has been well said Federico Gastaldi, who seems to have offered to continue as project leader the next year. Just need to wait for the official confirmation of both the position of Federico as the purchase of the computer that maybe you’ll come after the next and last GP.

In terms of McLaren-Honda, things seem not to change too much. Fernando Alonso leads 12 engines this season, and in the free 2 we have seen that the Honda was starting to smoke and fire, while from the wall indicated to him to stop the car to end the session in the absence of testing the soft tyres. Need to confirm what engine will be mounted, because if you do not want to suffer a penalty you should use the from the GP of Mexico, which lasted just one lap of the race with a problem…
