If they want to extend the engine revs to 18000, they should increase peak fuel to 16000-18000 too.
And with a future of full electric vehicles, development of combustion will slow down anyway.
I would think the maximum rpm will remain at 15k, but the operating range will be raised from 10-12k to 13-15k.
Would like if they reduced the number of gears back to 7 or even 6, forcing them use a wider rev range than just 2000 rpm, and it would also be more challenging for the drivers, as a bad shift would mean you get out of the optimal rev range. Not like now where they are always in the optimal rev range, and getting the shifts right doesn't really matter
