Jul.6 - If the latest F1 meeting is any indication, the sport's future is looking bright.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff headed to his native Austria for this weekend's grand prix only after attending the engine group meeting, where the post-2020 rules are rapidly taking shape.

F1 has said it wants the next engine to be louder, cheaper and simpler, amid rumours it will be a 1.6 litre V6 with a bi-turbo and single KERS.

But what was surprising about this week's meeting was the number of interested parties in attendance.

"There were surprising participants like Porsche, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Cosworth, Ilmor and AVL," Wolff is quoted by Speed Week.

Other sources report that Audi, Alfa Romeo, Zytek and others were also there.

The implication is that the current 'power unit' regulations were simply putting off too many potential F1 participants for too long.

F1 legend Gerhard Berger told Servus TV: "Many companies can handle the technology of the current engine very well.

"But when it comes to the entire thing in its complexity with the hybrid systems, only a few are really able to do it very well."

F1 CEO Chase Carey agrees: "The engines should be louder but also less complicated, while at the same time keeping the costs down."

  • Jazzi: "... so far in 2018"? What a laugh ?. Its pitiful to see a former world champion, superb driver and thoroughly pleasant chap get treated so shoddily. Respect to the Iceman for maintaining his class and dignity amidst Ferrari's disgraceful practices. They self-destructed last season, poetic justice some may say. If so, the implosion may be even worse this year because Kimi is genuinely competive. He out-qualified Seb in Melbourne, and in the last 2 qualifying sessions, he was only edged off pole by Seb in the final flying rounds of Q3. Yet, he still gets screwed by the Ferrari strategist in the races. Pathetic! View Post
