F1 » Horner wants F1 engine unfreeze handled ‘responsibly’


Taz:
Patton: They need to junk the little no noise ,underpowered Berrine engines. What is needed is 5 L 1400hp plus big noisy engines, Big wheels and tires, Lot of down force, excess power !
To be fair to the poison dwarf (and I rarely say that) he was dead against the current engines. It's really the "Todt engines".
Yah, it's called too much politics from an institution that has an almost monopoly over 4 wheel racing and their respective venues (licensing) ... and an agenda that is very long in the tooth.

F1 » Horner wants F1 engine unfreeze handled ‘responsibly’


rob01: Currently the teams are developing their 2015 car parallel to the 2014. No one is aware of gains that have already been made but not realized. Between the two with issues that need improving the most solid gains may have already taken place and now be looking for additional improvemen's over rules they agreed to. There are also rumors that Merc has made a very good improvement on the 15 that may be causing the other two further heartburn. Having seen the architecture of the current Merc pushes them towards a redo and not wanting to use their tokens. Is that really fair to a team that got it right? Or is parity the goal?
All Merc need is reliability and better aero/setups. The other factories are too far behind to even hope to catch Merc's level of downforce/total output energy during a race.

why don't they just get rid of the freeze, it's not like freezing them contains costs, you lose either way ... But you know, i think the guys coming up with these stupid rules know that anyways, what a fracked up regulation. An investment is an investment, you lose more if you know you will never win, if you want to contain costs, run a ballast system and prohibit teams/mfrs who go too fast, and then teams who spend little and get more will benefit more in that system, and teams who spend too much will reach a wall where the cost is too prohibitive to keep spending (power unit development) Strict and rigid totalitarian rules are nothing compared to good economic thinking. Some people apparently either don't care or have another agenda. You can't contain costs, you can only hope to shape them. How about this, freeze the winning manufacturer's power unit for 1 year if they take the WCC, thats about as much ice as i can stand.
