sas, you have forgotten something.

THE FIA COST CUTTING MEASURE: Engine Freeze.

Its worked out much cheaper to freeze engines and introduce KERS hasn't it!

Thanks Max.

Oh theres a suprise the mighty German manufacturer MB with its brilliant KERS system is actually a device designed, developed and built in the uk.

Well done Zytec.

The only reason KERS worked for Hamilton, is because most of the cars around him did.nt have it.
Kers was introduced as an energy saving (recycling) programme, not as a power button, which it has now become, if every body uses it lap after lap, it just negates itself.
The system in A1GP, where a driver can only use it so many times in a race, makes much more sence, an also requires a bit of discipline.
I would also question whether KERS developement was a saving over engine developement ???

I would love to see frozen aerodynamics instead of frozen engines. Although I enjoy aerodynamic developments and all the tiny wings and stuff, I would happily give that up in favor of highlyn strung engines pushed to the limit, with the added bonus of the occasional blow up now and then.

I also think it would be much more interesting for the engine manufacturers (except Mercedes maybe if there engines would blow up again every race), and I think we would see BMW at the front, since they can build the best engines. The engine development I think is also more relevant for street cars than adding an extra winglet.

JJ- 'I think we would see BMW at the front, since they can build the best engines'
Have you seen how many engines of theirs have blown up so far this season? I think Kubica has only one completly fresh engine left for the remainder of the season! :rolleyes:
