V8's are even easier and they sound good I was surprised in Bahrain that the Porsches were louder than F1.
I obviously realise V8's are not coming back but electric racing turns me off with no sound except a whine.
I think it must be my age! LOL

If it ain't broke don't fix it!
So why do F1 need new regulations, new cars and new engines for 2026?
Baffles me!!

Audi wouldn't have joined is the simple answer.  ;)

I'm not so sure!

You could be right Andy, however for reasons FIA & Liberty never properly made clear they were also trying to get Porsche to join the engine supply roster as well. 

Both the German marques were reported as unwilling to get involved with MGU-H technology.
They said cost, I suspect they couldn't see how they could make MGU-H work in a short time frame. After all the rest of the F1 grid have had years to refine the tech.

Seems the other Engine builders were & are happy to lose MGU-H, its expensive tech and there's little transfer, if any, to road cars, unlike MGU-K which is already appearing on vehicles, especially EVs.

Knock on effects of upping MGU-K and other direct charging for new massive batteries for fuel saving would have increased weight massively on old chassis. New lighter smaller chassis required or F1 speed would have dropped below Le Mans Hypercars & probably F2.   :swoon:

F1 pinnacle of motorsport - Ergo new regs for total package required.  :D

Being a die hard Lewis fan I was thrilled he was able to win at Silverstone and not at the expense of RB or Macca like George did in Austria.
An emotional win for sure and I as well will never be over the way 2021 worked out.
 
I don't give a damn what Max does with the rest of his career, in 2021 he showed his true colours as a dirty racer and I for one will never support him or any team he races for.

The English summer weather....there is a reason the British Isles are so green.

Mclaren did a fine job again and Lando is gaining more experience each race and his time will come.

Has Perez forgotten how to drive the RB?

What are Ferrari doing?  They seem to have a revolving door on the strategy office as it is far from consistent.

I'm a Lewis fan so him getting the win was very pleasing for me and justifies his GOAT status, 9 wins at a single circuit too, 104 wins, 150 podiums and 8 7 World Titles. I'm looking forward to seeing him in red!

I too believe CS should be staying at Ferrari.

How long has SP got before RB send him packing.

Will LS be around after the summer break.

Is DR improving?
I'm not convinced!

LL to RB?

CS to Mercedes?

VB to Williams?

Hero: Hamilton for admitting he is still not fully over what happened in 2021. I don't blame him. And nevermind him, I'm not over that yet, god knows how he will ever get over it!

Also, whilst at the start of the year I hoped his move was as inspired as is his move to Mercedes a decade ago, now I worry that it will turn out to be a poor choice. Ferrari seem to be going backwards again, whereas Mercedes are not far off the top again. I wonder if Hamilton has an "undo" clause?!?
