With costs becoming an issue again what is the point of the new costly power train regs for 2014? I don't see f1 or anyother Motorsport for that matter being attacked by environmentalists, making the cars greener seems to be the point. So why not reduce the rev limit of the current engine and compensate with the planned greater usage of kers?
At the end of the day the greatest environmental impact of f1 it's the air miles clocked by hundreds of team personnel and hundreds of tonnes of kit. I read somewhere that all the fuel used by f1 cars in a season is the equivalent of 1 transatlantic flight. Also having entire circuits floodlite isn't exactly green is it. I hope these changes are postponed until the economy gets stronger.
