The president of F1, in favor of everything that is to reduce expenses
Those of Milton Keynes would use the Honda engine as a base
Formula 1 has been in talks with the different teams for months to freeze the development of the engines for the 2022 season at the request of Red Bull. Stefano Domenicali believes it would be something positive for the premier class and for all teams.
Honda will leave Formula 1 at the end of the 2021 season. The Milton Keynes people consider that the best option for them is to acquire the intellectual property of the Honda engines and continue to use them in 2022. That is the reason why they called for the freezing of the engines. engines. However, it seems that all the teams disagree.
On February 11, the final decision on this and on the new regulations for power units will be made. If it succeeds, the energy drink team would not need to buy engines from another manufacturer already present in Formula 1 and would have much lower expenses.
Domenicali has made it clear that this would not only benefit Red Bull, but also the rest of the teams, who would not spend as much money in that regard. “I hope everyone realizes that is the right choice not only for Red Bull but for all of Formula 1“, said Domenicali in statements to the Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport.
The negative point of this freeze for most teams is that they will not be able to catch up with Mercedes in terms of the engine until 2025, when the new regulation that affects power units is expected to come into force.
However, a car is much more than the engine. The new regulation of 2022 that will change the cars in a substantial way and is designed to reduce the differences between the Germans and the rest and start a new era with a different champion.
