    Default 750 bhp from a 1.6 engine wow

    F1 ENGINE RULES FROM 2013
    1.6-litre, four-cylinder turbos with energy recovery and fuel restrictions to replace current 2.4-litre normally aspirated V8s
    Fuel efficiency to increase by a target of 50%
    Overall power to remain same at approx 750bhp
    Checks and balances to ensure costs are contained and performance across all engines remains comparable
    Plan for advanced 'compound' turbos to be introduced in subsequent years
    Power of Kers energy recovery systems to increase from 60kw in 2011 to 120kw in 2013

    Give it a few years and the technology they come up with will be seen on road cars.

    Its a good way to develop future innovations.

    I'm just waiting for a diesel (or similar) powered F1 car.

    That would be quite interesting though with the 1.6T engines, less torque than the V8 but would imagine they will make them rev to 20k plus!

    Never lol. The high power from such a small lump comes from very high revs. For comparable power from a diesel the engine would ha e to be huge as the combustion proses works at much lower levs on a oil burner.

    You could say. "Well look at Le Mans" Good point, but thats an endurance race, the petrol prototypes could go faster than the TDi's but they would have to raise the revs which in turn would lower the life of the engine.

    Just to add, past F1 engines used to have a 1.5 with over 1000bhp and that was years ago. Just think what they could do nowadays if they were allowed.
