F1 is the world's ultimate R&D arena, does it not make sense to use towards improving fuel effiency in road cars? No the F1 cars do not use alot of fuel over the course of a weekend or even a season for that matter, but they could use alot less and maintain current performance levels, and that exact technology is what is needed throughout the auto industry today. And that is why all the F1 manufacturers are excited about KERS and its future implications.
I'll refrain from responding except to say that I learned as a college professor that there is no force strong enough to overcome ignorance. You know zero about me; therefore your opinion of me has equal weight - zero.
I phrased that in the completely wrong way, and for that I apologize, sincerely. What I meant to convey was, Your line of reasoning, as expressed in regards to the engine freeze, in this thread, if expanded upon in a all emcompassing fashion, is the same line of reasoning that has led to the current global economic & environmental crises. The idea that F1 is a totally seperate & detached entity from the rest of the world and its small energy usages and financial excesses dont effect anybody other than those related to it. I did not mean it as a personal attack specifically aimed at you, because there are millions who think along similar lines.
Again I apologize.
