The FIA could have just ask the engine manufacturers to reduce the displacement from the current 2.4 litres to 1.6 litres and still retain the V8 configuration. Would have been cheaper and with the addition of the turbo and ERS the difference in lap times would just be a second or two, or maybe even none.
