After only two years, am I alone taking this as a sign that Cosworth will not make the investment in a 1.6 V6 turbo for 2014?http://www.grandprix.com/ns/ns23535.html
With only two teams for next year, perhaps they are leaving already after 2012?
Regretably, I think you are right. "Minnow" teams + "minnow" engine supplier = failure. Funny that all the regulations limiting engine technology have NOT helped Cosworth be competitive. The DFV broke new ground in engine design and was spectacularly successful. Today, inovative design is anathema, so Cosworth has lost any creative edge they might
have over the giants. In the USA, "there is no substitute for cubic inches." In F1, no substitute for cubic money.
