Who/what benefits from MGUH development? Six+ years on and no road use yet, but F1 keeps it in the mix because of road relevancy or something about efficiency as marketing tactic. How about leave automakers and lawmakers to making their fleets efficient. That's fine. But why does F1 need to pretend to be a part of that?
perhaps the H's time is about to come, in road cars? electric is coming and the problem is charging infrastructure, and there's going to be a long period when the best kind of road car would be basically electric but one that can charge itself. Most journeys are short and most of the time you use a few kW in a queue. So a medium sized battery and a very small but super efficient petrol engine could be just the thing. Like the BMW i3 but done better
then with a turbo, adding an mgu to it shouldn't be a huge deal should it, once they're not going to extremes like F1. it's like a turbine really
