F1 wants to keep its engines green, but is this keeping away new manufacturers? Formula 1 is always rewarding to watch, but it currently has room to improve. This opinion was echoed by Christian Horner on the BBC during the 2015 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, when he stated that the competitive edge has been lost to the engine-based formula. I understand that F1 organisers want to keep the green hybrid engines, but this is preventing new engine manufacturers from joining the fray.
How about this for a possible solution: have one engine supplier at a time on a two-to-three-year contract, with suppliers bidding for the new contract. They’ll then pay a premium joining rate in return for huge positive media attention and advertising rights.
The advantage for the fans? A return to competitive F1, and the talented Max Verstappen racing wheel-to-wheel amid a revived Mclaren-ferrarired-bull rivalry. Any team can have a good day and be seen on the podium and driver talent will shine through once more.
