But Rob.. How big are those tanks? I appriciate that they want as little weight as possible in the car, but if they feel that having to carry fuel that add's say 1/2s to a lap gived an advantage of 3/4s per lap on pure power then they will find a way to fit a bigger tank in the car andf claim that extra 1/4s. Limit the fuel and that's not an option anymore - they have to find the performance without using the extra fuel. I do agree though that making the F1 car fuel efficient does nothing to the eco credentials of a sport that flies teams around the world. Nor will it help with costs, as making a V6 produce 800+bhp within tight technical confines probably means less performance per 1m spent. If they teams really wanted to save money they would, but the only ones that want to are the ones who cannot survice - the rest don't care. Until it's their turn of course!
