If Red Bull has plans for an F1 engine program..


A much more serious piece of news was the announcement from Porsche that the technical director of its LMP1 programme Alex Hitzinger is departing the company, after five years. The team has won the World Endurance Championship and the Le Mans 24 Hours and it seems that the idea of repeating the success is not that appealing to Hitzinger, who is supposed to be leaving motorsport. Hmmm… So this guy has all the secrets of F1-style hybrid technology and has spent the last 20 years in motorsport and he’s just going to stop and leave the business. I think not. Hitzinger is a man who would be on the shopping list of anyone considering building an F1 engine, or trying to make a poor one work better. Among his jobs in the past have been head of Cosworth’s WRC development, head of Cosworth’s F1 activities, head of advanced technologies at Red Bull Technology, and technical director of Scuderia Toro Rosso.
