F1 loses steam and HP in 2013

Post  Ikon on Wed Jan 05, 2011 1:26 pm

Are we looking at drop in HP and top speed for F1 in 2013? Reason, new engine regulation, they will drop the V8 2.4 cc engine and go with 4 cylinders 1.6 cc turbo engines! If that happens, we are looking at some interesting development as well for road cars.... so far only one team is unhappy with the engine change and that is Ferrari, why? Have we ever seen a Ferrari with V4, 1.6cc engine?

Maybe, but Ferrari got no experience with small or turbo charge engine ...... Very Happy, perhaps 2.4 cc is the smallest they have work on..and that too a V8 engine.

A bit difficult VW is a giant in the motor industry, they own so many brands name like Audi and etc, and in the instance of Ferrari they are owned by FIAT who happen to also own Mesarati, Lancia, Alfa Romeo, so if the two giants buy each other out later GM might just sneak in and pick up the broken pieces Laughing

Yup, one of the brand they is Daewoo, rebadge to Chevrolet, Opel they have substantial share in Suzuki as well. Cpme to think of it, they don't really acquire these other car maker, only majority shares in the company. They also own Saab, but due to the economic crunch thet let go that brand to Dutch car maker Spyker.
