What I still don't get is that these manufacturers are pouring millions and millions into these new engines, only to then have the FIA come in and create equality between them for the next several years (this has to be done of course, since real engine competition/development isn't allowed anymore but at the same time none of the manufacturers will accept running behind one of the others for 5 years). Back in the good old days when engine development was still allowed it made sense to pour every last million into it to make sure your firebreathing monster had a couple HP on the other guy's powerplant, it was an equal playing field of fair competition that yielded great results...Now though, what's the point? Might as well manufacture a Trabant if it means then all the others are effectively not allowed to build something better...
