    Hmm. But have they got the manufacturers on board, that's the question...? After all they were the ones who wanted the current engines as they were supposedly 'road relevant'. But F1 has a problem looming, Like it or not, by 2030 road cars will be electric, so F1 has to either become an electric series or take the drag racing route and divorce itself from road relevance (and perhaps manufacturers in the process).

    I'm really not sure how F1 is road relevant in any way. Yes, the cars have 4 wheels, an engine, a chassis, a steering wheel and brakes but that is where the likeness stops.

    Touring cars are road relevant.

    Rumours now of a V6 Twin Turbo with no MGU-H.

    Almost, but most certainly much better racing(in the BTCC anyway), used to follow both but now only attend the BTCC, 3-4 rounds a year, the rest live on tv, F1 I hear about in the pub on Sunday nights

    I read that this design made the driver feel dizzy and sick. Not good for an F1 driver!!

    Wow; most likely caused by the curved light refraction. Hadn't seen that.

    Jean Todt is steadfastly opposed to bringing back the V10s for environmental reasons and social responsibility reasons. But then he’s also up for re-election as FIA president shortly and could be deposed by someone more friendly to 20,000 rpm.

    I hear Flavio Briatore isn’t busy at the moment, maybe he’d be willing to “Fix” things ;)
