Two men named Markus Duesmann and Oliver Blume meet the big wigs in Formula 1 this weekend Red Bull Ring.
Auto Motor und Sport reports that the sport is now removing the details of the new engine regulations for 2025 and above, starting with a big meeting between the engine manufacturers in front of the Austrian GP.
“Basic questions remain,” claimed correspondent Michael Schmidt.
“How much should the engine cost? What should the cost limit be? What components should be standard? What should the internal combustion engine look like? What should be the proportion of electrical energy?”
Schmidt continued: “Do we need MGU-H or not? Should the power also be supplied to the front wheels? What performance are we aiming for?
“How big and heavy can the battery be to keep the weight of the cars down?”
It is already known that carbon neutral fuel is on the way in and the current V6 architecture will be the basis for the new engines.
“In addition to the four Formula 1 manufacturers, CEOs of Porsche and Audi will also be at the table,” Schmidt revealed.
Their names are Markus Duesmann, Audi CEO, and his Porsche counterpart Oliver Blume, representing Volkswagen’s reported interest in being able to drive in Formula 1 under future engine rules.
