With all the restrictions on HP and Rpms and such. Does it really matter whats under the hood? Just like the current engine formula, producing engines that are as close to the same, as if they were all built by the same manufacturer.

Come on this is F1 we should have 1000bhp at least, we should have rules on even stronger chassis, further circuit safety improvements, why keep taking steps backwards?

The days are over when Ferrari is seen to enjoy a position of privilege in Formula 1.

That is the belief of two highly experienced F1 paddock veterans: the Brazilian journalist Livio Oricchio and Red Bull's technical boss Adrian Newey.

Oricchio, who writes for the O Estado de S.Paulo newspaper, said Pirelli's choice of tyre compound for next weekend's British Grand Prix is proof Ferrari can no longer overtly exert its influence at the highest level

Max fixed this before he left. So Ferrari wanting a V6 was nice but not necessary.

Mclaren like Red Bull wanted the four cylinder theY both didn't get it, Red Bull has now spilled the beans while mclaren changed their mind (like their driver often does) and are saying the new engine is good for F1.

So GLAD everyone is so pleased about new crap engines in F1.

F1 sucks more every day.. teams turning cartwheels about a low spec V6 in F1. HaHaHa Wrong Direction!!!

Interesting comments from Brundle who did 20 laps at Valencia with the current V8, and claimed" what a dog the V8 is".."had no torque what so ever". Now we get some gutless V6 with battery motor assist.

Quickly loosing my interest...
