    I hope so! I believe, other than Honda, Porsche and Audi have the recent racing experience, as well as hybrid technologie experience to be able to be competitive from the get go!
    So does BMW by the way.
    I really would encourage such competition of European sports brands. Would be better for Mercedes and Ferrari too.
    Not so special to mention you beat a Renault.....

    Re: Formula One

    IMO,

    VW will not step into F1 and considering Bugatti is now up for sale along with other cutbacks taking place elsewhere, not to mention Weissach has no current power plant for the present or for the discussed upcoming rule changes, i doubt highly they will partake. Porsche is also hampered from their last major F1 fail and historically (so far) is only willing to invest in Lemans type projects ..

    I would not be surprised if F1/FIA has a freeze on current power plants until after pending economic storm, as for Honda withdrawal official story, to focus on electric power plants, IMO they are currently receiving buckets of returns on their Indy program spear headed by Satoís ( big deal in Japan ) success , I'm expecting this is their immediate focus and not F1..

    Hard to justify the $$$ ..!

    Cold and rain in store for the German Grand Prix this weekend. That should shake up the field. Looking forward to watching.

    Re: Formula One

    Both first and second practice were cancelled today due to inclement weather. I enjoy watching the Sky Sports F1 coverage of practice. The broadcast crew at Sky is so much better than what we used to suffer through in the US. Diffey is just irritating and Matchett was relevant 20 years ago. Hobbs was the best of that crew; funny at times.

    Re: Formula One

    I know almost nothing about F1 but I'm just starting to develop an interest in it. What engine configurations are used in F1? Any V8s? V6s? V12s? Any four cylinders? I would expect they're all super/turbo charged? Are the engine configurations pretty much all the same or are they all different from one another? What kind of horsepower are they turning these days? What are the highest straight away speeds that they're capable of? How do Indy cars differ from F1?

    For 2020 F1: In Formula 1, there are no regulations for the amount of power a team can use in their cars. There are engine specifications thought, which needs to be complied to. The specifications are four-stroke, turbocharged 1.6 liter, 90 degree V6 turbo engines. The maximum engine power rotational speed is 15,000 revolutions per minute (rpm).

    Coming to the amount of power generated, the exact numbers are highly classified in nature by the engine providers. The current F1 engine providers are Ferrari, Mercedes, Honda and Renault. Mercedes is considered to have the maximum Horse Power (HP). Ferrari comes next, with Renault and Honda have considerably gap over the two giants. The teams invest a lot of money in research to give them an extra edge in powerful engines.

    The total power of a F1 engine is measured after calculating the power in the V6 engines, and Energy Recovery System (ERS). Considering the development of engine by the aforementioned engine suppliers, it is considered that the current F1 cars carry more than the magic number of 1000 HP. In spite of this, the F1 cars are extremely safe to drive, with good fuel efficiency, with major accidents rarely reported from the tracks

    Hey Chris, thank you so much for that rundown. I really appreciate it. I've always been in awe of how quick F1 cars are. Things happen extremely fast with both F1 and Indy cars. I don't know how the drivers can react so fast. I can't even begin to imagine the skill it takes to be competitive in either sport.

    At a track where both series compete, Circuit of the Americas, the F1 lap times were about 14 seconds quicker than Indy cars.

    Re: Formula One

    To add to my previous post, the biggest factor in the speed differential between F1 and Indy cars is aerodynamics rather than engine power. Engine power plays a role too, just not the biggest one.
