    Default F1 to ditch current V6 hybrid turbo motors

    "A broad agreement has been reached for the future of Formula One engine technology, with the sport targeting cheaper, louder and powerful engines after 2020."
    ......

    "
    The broad agreements are likely to see the current 1.6-litre V6 turbo hybrids ditched for a simpler solution that can still be used by manufacturers as a test bed for road car technology."

    I'm all in favour of V10, 22,000 rpm road engines.....
    Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone............

    Yup, just the right setup for city use.

    "..as a test bed for modern car technologies"

    Yes I can test my rain sensing windscreen with a V10, along with the Bose sound system we plan to install

    I thought small Turbo V6's were a good compromise on the contemporary pressures the combustion cycle faces. They $$$$ to race with are they? Surely they have only had 3yrs to developed it at the moment?

    Perhaps get rid of the rules and enforce a total fuel usage over a weekend, oh wait, the sport will get super $$$ again.

    ok ok ok LS3's for everyone, and fiberglass Myers Manx chassis (1 per season)

    GO!

    The small turbo engine is just one part of a very compex and expensive power system. The linked article expands of the complexity of the current power packs in F1.

    One thing I note, it is longer accurate in the article where it states if F1 engine stops on the track it can not be re-started by the driver. We saw Kimi Raikkonen re-start his Ferrari during practice in Melbourne after a gremlin struck and caused the engine to stop whilst on the track.

    So it seems the rules give the teams the elec motor system, along with the turbo, and they bolt it onto their own developed v6?

    And starting, with direct injection, Don't some Mazda's now do that when they stop at the lights?

    And funny article;
    1) F1 should be hightech
    2) Fans want it to be noisy

    Perhaps just louder waste-gates and bovs to keep the proletariat's happy.

    How about V12's or V10's, ditch the hybrid systems and remove fuel restrictions. Would be super fast and loud and loads cheaper than the current hybrid power plants. Maybe even limit the revs to 12/14,000 rpm and get the engines to last a little longer..
