Surely the issue is, does F1 want to represent the pinnacle of motor racing technology? If the answer is Yes (and it should be), the naturally aspirated, high-revving four-stroke no longer represents the latest technology: it has been replaced, for reasons of volumetric efficiency mainly, by the boosted (turbocharged) engine. Bernie may wish to make the clock stand still, but no one can. And as for worrying about manufacturers being left behind, surely that's the whole point? Otherwise you might as well do an engine contract with Manufacturer X for the whole field like Indycar.
