Guys my name is Billy, I'm a newcomer to this forum and I've really enjoyed reading the threads posted by you guys, namely FF, Andecorp, allenuber, Flamestone, dodger, fivesix, Mondi, Wattens, Ashsimmonds, aircon, deangpsx8, Thedoctor etc, I don't know if you guys are into F1, but this is really disturbing you have to admit..

Related statement from the FIA:
The Technical Regulations for 2013 were approved:

- Power units will be four cylinders, 1.6 litre with high pressure gasoline injection up to 500 bar with a maximum of 12,000 rpm, with extensive energy management and energy recovery systems (now known as ERS), reflecting the decision taken by the WMSC in December 2010

- The aerodynamic regulations have been based on 2011 rules, with modifications in order to improve the aerodynamic efficiency: together with the power train rules, this will enable a 35 percent reduction in fuel consumption

- The height of the tip of the nose will be limited to ensure better compatibility in a T-bone style accident

- A limitation on transmissions (gear ratios, number of gearboxes) in order to decrease costs

- The overall weight of the car must be no less than 660kg
( 20 kg more than 2011 )

The FIA will now consult with the sportís main stakeholders and, depending on the outcome of this consultation, may hold a fax vote (by June 30 at the latest) which would permit the implementation date to change.

Bernie Eccelstone said in an interview that if these changes( ie. engines) were to go through, F1 would be risking losing two of its biggest selling points, 1. The sound and 2. Ferrari

Obviously the majority of negativity including my own opinions are strongly related to the new engine package.. a 4 cylinder Ferrari engine.. what are your views on this??

if there's gonna be a turbo bolted on then I say bring it on

It would be good to see the days of exhausts shooting flames and turbos blowing come back to F1

Ferrari have done great 4 cylinder engines... the 500 Mondial and TRC, and 750 and 860 Monzas.....

They'll do it again too.

They'll just cut a 458 engine in half.

the road car engine would make ~300 BHP out of 2.25 litres, without a turbo.

They are going to be Hybrids by all accounts or has that idea been scrubbed????

I read an article stating that there will be:
Turbo Charging
Energy recovery systems - with power to be harvested from the brakes and exhaust gases.
And electric motors - which will exclusively power the cars until they rejoin the racetrack during Pit stops.

Those classics were undoubtly beautiful cars, championship winning cars.. with 4 cylinder engines but they weren't classed in Formula 1. The most dangerous period in F1 was with turbocharging so we all know what a couple of hairdryers can do so I'm all for forced induction period...  :thumbsup: But my arguement is based on why was there a need for such a change? It's a sport and like many other sports it has its responsibilities, its market share etc so to risk interupting a multi-billion dollar business, Jean Todt would like to introduce into the sport the world's enviromental issues?

Cmon guys I understand we need to learn to preserve our heritage and how our enviroment is in such bad shape and we all need to play our small parts in producing less emissions and better means to fuel effeciency on and on and on  :rolleyes: The problem is far too great and far to long-term and irrelevant to make these sort of changes with motorsport? Yet each and every day in every part of the world at the same time we can only imagine the shitboxers that are out there producing so much emissions that are really making the difference.
I would love to see someone try and make enviromental changes to NASCAR with their small block 8's, insane cams and there still CARBY!  :doh: These solutions should be inverted in our daily lives not applied to 24 cars racing 20 times a year for just over a hour..

Ultimately why compromise on history and reduce or downsize I should say to what we've been acustom to, 'cause really nothing compares to a Ferrari V8, V10 and V12 @ full song  ;) Lets just hope Toyota don't return and do a remake of their 4AGE to kick our asses!  :p
