I rather suspect the 'frozen' engine idea for 2014 is rather fanciful. Perhaps frozen in the same way as BTCC where teams (usually Honda) enjoying an advantage get their boost dropped. If, say, Merc engined cars win the first 6 races of 2014 by a country mile, the frozen engines of the rest will become thawed out and rightly so. The FIA are always banging on about how F1 technology passes down to road cars and yet they stifle engine development for 6 years while allowing all manner of aero twiddles, none of which are particularly relevant to 99% of road users. I don't buy the cost argument as aero development is certainly not cheap.
