Formula 1 plans to keep the turbo hybrid engines at least until the 2021 season, although the idea is to increase the noise level of the engines and reduce the cost.
The project became known in Paris after a meeting between the members of the International Automobile Federation, the owners of the commercial rights of the category and the manufacturers.
According to the plan, Formula 1 cars would keep the 6-liter V1.6 turbo hybrid engine, but would eliminate one of the two ways currently used to generate hybrid power. That way, the engines will be simpler and cheaper.
Inside the changes, the engines are expected to have 3.000 more revolutions per minute, which will make them louder.
F1 Motorsports CEO Ross Brawn said the proposals stemmed from a series of meetings with F.1 teams and engine manufacturers, as well as gaining input from fans of the premier class of motorsport.
