bryan. i fully understand the "complexity". the turbo does not power the kers, the transmission does, exactly as it is doing at present. the engine itself has no effect other than to drive the gears. the engine is a "stand alone" unit and creating a new engine is well within the ability of the manufacturers. dont forget, they were building far more advanced turbos in years gone by! yes yes. you are right, people forget the changes quite rapidly. remember the small rear wings, the stepped nose etc etc. nobody has an issue with these, after a years racing. and as for engines, i have lived through probably 10 engine changes, including turbos etc, and now some are calling for the reintroduction of old formula engines of differing sorts?? in 10 years time, when 1.2 na engines will be required (:D :D), posters will be calling for the "traditional" 1.6 v6 turbos to be retained, as the sound was "so sweet".
