So guys, another question.
How do would feel about a capped power output? Like in the WEC LMDh class, where the torque output curve is identical for every powerunit. The manufacturers can only compete in consumption, packaging and reliability.
Could be interesting to see, if the best engines is not giving 0,3-0,6s advantage in qualifing and the best chassis-driver combo is in front. Than in the race the beter engine can give a little advantage and maybe some more battle/overtakes if the better engine qualifies further back.
We can also lose the fuel flowlimiter.
Nah, that's too rational for F1... They'd never go for something like that. They'd rather prescribe the the layout the bore length, etc, up to even the screws that are used to hold the engine together.
I think it would work fine and would be a lot more interesting with opening up all other technical restriction. And also a separate cost cap for engine development. (otherwise Mercedes would just keep funding their championship victories)
As long as the fuel limit stay the fuel flow limit could be dropped.
