Re: 2021 Engine Proposals announced

Wonder if this will actually come to pass... so often F1 announces things and then later on changes it's mind. In fact sometimes it's hard to believe that F1 is actually a professional entity! https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/ferrari-f1-future-974190/ And here we go... "...it needs to be absolute...

Re: 2021 Engine Proposals announced

A regular, naturally aspirated, petrol-powered internal combustion engine is what... 20% efficient? What are the current cars? 45%? It's a huge difference. And don't forget, the more efficient, the more power gets to the wheels for each litre of fuel, it's not only about fuel saving. Nobody cares. ...

The simplest way to increase power is to increase revolutions. More gas and air, more power.

BINGO kleefton. I've been in Kart races that were louder and sounded better and those are measly 125cc motors. Herb, I went to several CART races and I would disagree they weren't as loud.

Re: Interesting article; future of motorsport

The hybrid engines have been an abject disaster for Formula One. Do you care to explain your point of view ? The engines were sold to the teams that they would be lower cost. Instead, they are massively higher in cost. We've seen several teams fold up shop due to the explosion in higher costs, all ...

I know I'm a fan of Bottas and not so much of Hamilton, but is Hamilton's championship somehow triggering a load of votes? The fact that he got his WDC doesn't make his drive better. This whole weekend, I'm not convinced he's really been any better than his team mate. And given that he was lapped, ...

Vettel faded pretty bad this year and Kimi faded many many years ago. So yes, Ferrari do indeed have a driver problem.
