F1 » Possible lifeline for V8 engines

i can not follow that one. the 1,6T will be from the "worldengine" plattform, so it will be an engine quite similary to the engines WRC and WTCC/BTCC are using - so that manufactures (ford-wrc, citroen-wrc, GM-WTCC, Mini (BMW-WRC), Seat(VW-wtcc), VW-wrc from2013) will build that engine anyway. so i think the manufactures actually not running in F1 all will be very happy with those new rules, the manufactures (renault, mercedes, ferrari, cosworth(?)) will not like it! so what is better meeting with newones or keeping the old ones .... Worldengine is defenitly the FIA wants to go, F1 is part of FIA - so FIA also wants F1 to use "their" engine greetings

F1 » TWG approves FOTA version of 2013 rules

manufactures will love the 1.6l turbos .. they already use the worldengine in WTTC and WRC - same specs. GM, Ford, Citroen, bmw (mini cooper) already use it, VW just builds it for WTCC/BTCC's Seats. the old diesel's are not competitve anymore against the 1.6turbos (eveybody who whatched Monza last weekend knows what i mean) greetings greetings

F1 » Gascoyne applauds 'ballsy' Pirelli for changing the face of F1

fast degration is good - but maybe they've gone a bit to far with it (lets see 2012 tires..) but they messed it up between hard and soft. hard can and should be a bit slower, but should defenetly also hold longer! that is not the case with the pirelly - on some cars the soft even runs longer than the hard one. so i only can partly agree with gasconye (but still getting rid of bridgestone was the best - better again would be a second supllier - but without testing not possible)

F1 » Parr: New engines will be good for F1

finally they will have to use fia's world engine (1.6l turbo)this year already used in WTCC and WRC those to series even have almost the same homologation rules so one manufacturer easly can use his cars (parts of the cars - eg driveshaft..) in the other series FIA defenitly wants this engine also used in F1 (this is really rediculus!!) powered up maybe through twin instead of single turbo and naturally with a strong kers system. .... not good for F1 greetings
