Lewis Hamilton says he does not think that Formula One will introduce standardised engines in an effort to cut costs.
The FIA is currently in top-secret talks with F1 constructors about how to reduce expenses over the next two seasons following the collapse of Honda Racing.
“I don’t think that a standard engine is ever going to happen,” Lewis told reporters."I can't see that happening simply because the manufacturers play such a huge role in the sport.”
Hamilton added that he thinks introducing a single engine for the sport would make it “less exciting.” He admitted reducing costs in F1 was necessary but said it was “about having a balance.”
The FIA’s plan to cut costs in F1 is expected to be revealed later today after being approved by the World Motor Sport council.
