But the technology has become the be-all/end-all of F1's engines. There seems to be little regard for making a racing engine, and 100% regard for making a technological marvel. Is that the right way to go about this? Shouldn't constructors be able to produce whatever kind of engine gets them within the predefined performance requirements of the FIA? Should the FIA simple say, "engines must be limited to 500bhp," (or whatever description works) and then allow whatever engine to be produced within that paradigm? Maybe one team does it with a V8, another with a V10, another with a turbo V6, etc. What would be wrong with that simple formula? Why should there be requirements, based on a false premise, that the engines be "green," requiring massive fragile technology and requiring a racing team (A RACING TEAM!!) to have to worry about using too much gas!? The engines rules are simply absurd and could only appeal to a bureaucratic mind devoid of any real love for racing cars.
