Soon there will be more team orders as the Teams loyalty to the engine supplier will be tested.
F1 NEEDS MORE ENGINES NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I mean what will we have next year 3? 4 tyhe following year?
May as well all buy the same engine from the same supplier .
I am afraid that F1 is as Dead as Motgp .

Interesting, if I recall correctly the Ferrari power unit will be much cheaper than the Mercedes one so if Marussia haven't made a decision yet that suggests they believe the Mercedes unit will be the stronger of the two.

Honda will be in F1 soon, and I bet Toyota returns in two years. Let's hope the continued rumours of VW prove to be true as well. The world economy may still be in the dumps but all three of these manufacturers are in significantly better shape than two years ago, and smaller displacement turbos make sense to their business plan.

Wonder how influential Bianchi's position in the team will be in the engine decision? Of course, he may very well not be at Marussia next season (and his performances so far suggest he deserves better), but his links with Ferrari might prove decisive.....

Lets hope more manufacturers invest long term in not only engine development but KERS development as well. This will be where significant advantages will be made. It just depends on whether the V6 route is viable in terms of road car development and packaging!!
F1 chose the V6 route for the purposes of F1!!
