Head Red Bull Christian Horner believes that Formula 1 is facing a serious choice in which the championship should help the Formula. Christian Horner "a Whole galaxy of brands rushed into Formula E, and this gives us a chance to return to the classics of the engines of Formula 1 in the future.Formula-E - platform for the development of future technologies. Porsche, Mercedes, Renault, Audi, Jaguar is much more manufacturers than Formula 1.The cost of the work in the Formula-E is now 5 percent of the budget in Formula 1, so I can imagine that manufacturers of machines for the masses are in the Formula, such as Ferrari, Aston Martin and Lamborghini, pay attention to the Formula-1. This is their place.So I see that the championship is at a crossroads. If you believe a policy, we'll all be driving EVS in 2030, so the Formula-1 should be pure racing, a competition of the best pilots in the world with internal combustion engines.I conducted a survey on one of the forums fans of Red Bull, and all welcomed my opinion when I said we want to go back to V10. I doubt we'll do it. We have to settle for bi-turbo V6, but the sound is the key. Of all critics of the current engines the most important thing for fans is the sound.
