Formula One teams want to cut emissions and fuel consumption
The teams are already working with the International Automobile Federation (FIA) on the new technical regulations for 2013 that will bring downsized engines. Current F1 engines are 2.4-liter normally aspirated V8s, but those are expected to be replaced by turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder or V6 powerplants. The new rules will also like impose fuel limits to cut the consumption from the current 160 kilograms per race to 80 kg within five years. The overall goal is to both cut costs and make the sport more relevant to manufacturers and sponsors.
