After many critics of the self proclaimed "fans" of F1 about the sound of the new V6 Hybrid Turbo engines and now running 2nd year with those the even much bigger problem is their cost and the gap that increased between the teams, or engine suppliers, who have smaller budgets, Bernie wants to bring V8 1000bhp engines into the sport. What was the initial goal to reduce the costs, driving with 100kg of fuel per race due to the Hybrid systems (which are very expensive) unlike in the past, seems to have returned like boomerang, instead of cutting the costs they increased it. Teams would be forced to design all-new cars for the return of V8s cause current 100kg fuel limit tank are not big enough to endure the whole race which means totally new cars would be made. Bigger or at least wider. "We'd just need to take the old V8 engines and modify them by increasing displacement to bring power output near 1000bhp. "People would return, the show would return, sponsors would return." Ecclestone suggests that the move to hybrid engines has contributed to the fall in audiences by creating fan disinterest. "F1 isn't just technology, but enjoyment too," he said. "We need to think about who buys a ticket, goes in the grandstands and wants to see a great sporting spectacle. "It's money doing the rounds: the public pays for tickets, the organisers cash in and pay us, who then forward the money to the teams together with TV rights. "But if TV audiences shrink and the public at GPs do too, then it becomes a problem." These engines today have 700bhp + 160bhp with ERS system. What woud you like? These V6 Hybrid Turbo or new V8 1000bhp engines? And why?
