Williams Boss Believes F1 Must Go To Smaller 1.6 Litre Turbo-Charged V6 Engines In 2014
F1 team Williams Exec Dir Toto Wolff said that F1 has to "follow through on the decision to swap to smaller 1.6-litre turbo-charged V6 engines" in '14, according to PLANET-F1.com. Like F1 CEO Bernie Ecclestone, Wolff admitted he is not a fan of the smaller engines and would rather F1 have "opted to retain the current 2.4-litre V8 units." Wolff said, "My own personal view is that it should have never happened. It was agreed to make a new engine without having properly analysed how much that engine would cost in terms of development and in terms of research and running it later on." However, he conceded that now that millions have been spent by F1 engine manufacturers, the sport "has to go ahead with the change" (PLANET-F1.com, 11/11).
