FIA/Mosley to freeze all F-1 engine development

What do you think of the FIA/Max Mosley plan to freeze all F-1 engine development for three years after the 2007 season? Horst K

Stupid idea. If he wants to turn F1 into special Olympics - he will need to compete with A1GP

RE: FIA/Mosley to freeze all F-1 engine development

I agree, they are even talking of a 5 year freeze now. I saw Bruce McLaren and Denny Hulme race on the old Nuerburgring at the age of 10 and have been a F-1 fan ever since. Mosley will turn the pinnacle of automotive technology into a mediocre shadow of it's former self. I just can't get into the oval thing, otherwise I would Indy and Champ car more (why the heck are there two?). I also agree with your A 1 comment and last years U.S. GP was a disgrace never seen before in F-1. GP 2 was certainly exiting with some great new talent. Anyhow, we'll see. Cheerio, Horst K
P.S. Check out Keith's Nuerburgring Nordschleife, it's in English.

RE: FIA/Mosley to freeze all F-1 engine development

I agree totally stupid. I do however agree with the V8s over the V10s due to possible down flow of technology into the public offerings. The freezing of development idea is due to cost savings, however if he really wanted to reduce cost he should have stayed with the V10s. Did he seriously think that F1 teams had V8s just lying around waiting to be used?

RE: FIA/Mosley to freeze all F-1 engine development

Not enough lead time to get the V8 engines fully developed as can be seen from all the blow up's. Also, the last part of qualifying with most cars circulating just to burn fuel does not make sense to me. At least we got some young talented drivers with Rosberg and Speed. Kovalainen deserved a shot at racing too. Cheerio, Horst K

I agree ia a attempt to save money it is costing more. I hope this doe's not in the direction with teams building their own cars and using one engine supplier. Just a thought.

I hope the FIA wakes up and limits/regulates the fuel in third phase qualifying.

Mosley needs to retire *now*. He is slowly killing F1. He comes across as a schoolyard bully that is getting off on a power trip.

F1 is the showcase for automotive technology.
