F1 hopes not to repeat old mistakes with cycles of ‘ups and downs’

The history of Formula 1 and other top international categories, such as the WEC, has shown that the various championships have great difficulty in maintaining such a number of manufacturers over the long term, because not all of them can win and the “losers” abandon their projects.

However, the president of the Grand Cirque, Stefano Domenicalliand that of the FIA, Mohammad bin Sulayemthink the way the engine rules were written, coupled with the financial strength of Formula 1 in the new era of the budget cap, should be enough to keep everyone going for a long time.

The Italian said: “I think in the history of Formula 1 we have seen teams come and go, like the manufacturers. The beauty of the choice we have made together is that we are convinced that, technically speaking , it’s the good one.” .

The President of the FIA, Mohammad bin Sulayemsaid the desire to make sure the rules work for both current manufacturers and new ones to come, helped create belief that Formula 1 could keep all the car brands in the project.

“I am sure that the durability of the bikers will be there,” he said. “What we invested at the time to have the right PSU was a lot. The downside was the hours on the power bank and the budget cap, so we made sure that both parties, the brands who were already there and the newcomers They were lucky.”

“If we [la FIA] we would not have modified the power units, we would not have given the possibility of bringing in new equipment. There is no way for a big manufacturer to come as a supplier if they don’t have the opportunity, nobody wants to come and be humiliated,” he added.
