The latest F1 race in Qatar is a bit of a mixed bag.
The Renault engine had to be replaced in Bahrain for the race, while McLaren was forced to replace its engine in Brazil for a race in Australia.

The team’s Renault engine was running at a good level in Brazil and the Red Bulls RB10 engine was doing better in Australia, but the Redbull RB9 didn’t have as good of a race.
The Red Bull Red Bull Racing engine was also struggling in Brazil.
“The Renault-powered RB9 was a little better than the Renault engine, so the RedBull team went to Bahrain and they got the new Renault engine.
The problem was the RB9s power unit was really struggling in the race,” said Jeroen Bleekemolen, Head of the RB10 Team.
A couple of things helped the RB8 in Bahrain.
Firstly, it had a lot more power from the exhaust than the Red bull RB9.
Secondly, it was able to push harder on the straights than the RB7 in the early laps.
Bleekempolen said that the Redbbs RB10 team has been trying to work out the right way to get the Red-Bull RB9 into the right situation to fight the Red bulls RB9 for the lead in the first lap.
“[But] the RBs power units are still in the same place, so it is difficult for us to compare them,” he said.
That is why the RedBBS team is trying to get a better result in Brazil than in Bahrain, and try to win the race on the opening lap.
“We are happy that we won in Bahrain because we need to get another good result in Qatar, and also we need a good result on the second lap in Brazil to win on the first day.
We are not thinking about qualifying, but we are trying to win as many races as possible.”
The team is also keen to keep the Red Bushes RB10s powerplant at a better level in the event of a bad race.
In Bahrain, the Redbushes power unit had to give way to the Renault, but it was still running at an acceptable level.
There is a lot of talk in the F1 paddock that Renault should be given a shot at the RedBushes.
Jeroen Van der Poel, Managing Director of the Red Box company, told RTE that the team had received offers from teams for the opportunity to compete in the FIA World Endurance Championship.
But he said that Renault would have to give the Redbox a fight if they wanted to get back into the F2 class.
As for the future of the team, the driver line-up remains unclear.
For the first time, the Fords have fielded two drivers since Fernando Alonso took over from Felipe Massa.
When asked if that meant the team is ready to move on, Van der Poomel said that they had already started discussions about how the team can better compete in this season.
And when asked if there were any other teams who could be interested in the team in the future, Van Der Poel said, “I don’t know.
We will see.”
Renault has been fielding two drivers in the past four seasons, but with Fernando Alonso gone, the team may be looking to move into a more dynamic era with a new driver in 2017.

Reece Byrne will start on the grid for the team and will join the team after the race.
Both Daniil Kvyat and Felipe Nasr will be back on the starting grid for Red Bull, while Sebastian Vettel will be driving the car in the Red Yellow.
While Ferrari and Renault have been running their own engines in recent years, Red Bull and Red Bullracing are the only teams to have a fully fledged engine on the track.
