This is going to be a totally new experience for F1 drivers, the faster drivers which would not manage to get rid of the habit of driving fast would not be suitable for the job.
The drivers will need to learn a special skill to use special instrumentation to determine best operating conditions for best fuel economy as rapid accelerations or decelerations and operating at or near full throttle should be avoided.
And how the hell Mercedes HPE can be sure of leading this economy run?
Give me a V12, V10 OR AT LEAST A V8 ANY TIME.
