(Motorsport-Total.com) – The new hybrid turbocharged engines have so far been heavily criticized in Formula 1: They are expensive, mainly due the small team pushes to the edge, and the sound leaves something to be compared to the naturally aspirated left. Here, FIA boss Jean Todt had made intensive strong for the new technology ahead of the Regulations Revolution 2014 give the motorsport in the future legitimacy and to make it attractive for manufacturers.

So far, only Honda jumped on the Formula 1 train, but it is quite possible that Mercedes or Renault would no longer be on board under the old regulations today. If the decision was therefore right to focus on the new technology? “When it comes to whether it can be applied to road cars, it was absolutely the right decision,” says Renault engine boss Rob White. It used in the series, although perhaps not to the same elements, but design, development goals and some technologies could be transferred directly

Ferrari engine chief Mattia Binotto agrees his French colleague to:. “There is no doubt that the technology for the series is relevant because hybrid is the future. ” According to the Italian Formula 1 is going to be their claim, the laboratory for road, absolutely fair: “The best drive units in the series have an efficiency of over 30 percent, but we are clearly more than 40 percent and even better I am. therefore think that we do a good job for the street cars in F1. “

The Briton believes that the formula “has certainly done the right thing” 1 that “the timing but given the economic crisis was unfortunate.” Toro Rosso technical director James Key has as Symonds quietly reservations: “If we could turn back time and make us from the question: ‘Do we get it done exactly as we wanted, and it works accordingly’, then we would it might change. There is now a bit late, but probably we have to question whether the results match or just the principle. “

For Red Bull chief engineer Paul Monaghan, the drive unit has at all a minor Meaning: “There are some rules, and someone has to win in the end if you screwed a different engine to the rear, then the game remains the same, we want to win…”
