Formua 1 to use 1.8L 4cyl Turbo

Breaking news for the Formula 1 fans. Looks like we're going back to good ole' 1.8L\4cyliner\turbocharged engines in 2010. Each engine designed by the teams not supplied by a designated builder. See pg. 2.

It sounds like they are in a stand still over it. Ferrari and Toyota have been the biggest opponents of standard engines; the former stating they can live w/o F1 and the latter would be happy to move to Le Mans. Honestly I don't mind standardizing many parts but the engine is the heart of the car.

And the engines in the 80's were 1.5 liter V6s, not 1.8 four cylinders.

what the hell... the engines just get smaller and smaller over the years... i guess it pushes technology to the limit in terms of how much power they can squeeze out of such a small displacement... next thing we know its going to be a little 1L engine....

With Honda pulling out of F1, and the credit squeeze I am sure there is going to be plenty of changes. But all of the teams running the same motor is only one of the proposals put forward!

could you please show me where the OP claimed otherwise? i know he used the phrase "good ole days," but he was implying that F1 is going back to small displacement and forced induction - he wasn't implying that F1 is literally going back to an older-specification motor. at any rate, i suppose some of the most similar previous spec F1 engines would be the 1.5L inline-4 turbos from BMW, Hart, and Zakspeed (dates unknown).

He said "good ole' 1.8L\4cyliner\turbocharged engines" so I took it as such.

I totally forgot about the 1.5 BMW engine though

Uh oh, Formula 1 going back to turbos is insane. In the 80's with the turbo motors I remember BMW was pushing over 1500 hp at times.

Good luck to the drivers, wonder if there will be limits on boost.
