The latter would be the preferred path among automakers, although the debate is in which part to get out of the V6 turbo. Everything indicates that it would be the MGU-H, the element of the power unit that is responsible for generating electrical energy from the exhaust gases.

Without this technology the engines would be less complex and much cheaper that at present, something that Porsche and Audi expect to disembark in the F.1, either as a motorcyclist or as an integral constructor.

Unexpectedly, during the past Italian Grand Prix it was known that Mercedes it is willing to make concessions to allow the arrival of its German neighbors.
