Kobayashi: Renault currently unable to compete with Mercedes and Ferrari

arton32513Kamui Kobayashi took some pretty hard against Renault. The Japanese speedy, who had a productive day yesterday with Caterham, said the Renault V6 engine is currently unable to compete with its competitors such as Mercedes and Ferrari.

“This is what we have in our hands right now, so we have to help them so that they are able to compete with other rivals,” said Kobayashi at Sakhir.

“At the moment, we lack a clear rhythm. We give priority to Renault, and then we will work on our car. So we expect progress on the engine. ”

“We met other cars on the track and we clearly found that cars powered by Mercedes were much faster in a straight line of 20 to 30 km / h if not more. This is not anything because, if we had a decent engine braking points would not be the same, etc. We’ll see what we can do in the short term. Currently, we are clearly behind.”
