I know that our engineers can create even more powerful hybrid engine, the car will be even faster. It is quite possible that in fifteen years the world will change beyond recognition, and the motors will be the most advanced, and we will also have to adopt these technologies".

But we need to recognize the main problem of the underdevelopment of aerodynamics and try to fix it ASAP".

In 2010 when they banned refueling, engineers had to fit into the design of the cars gas tanks with increased volume, and many took the path of increasing the wheelbase. Then came the modern power plant c energy storage and electric motors. In the end, of the machine of Formula 1 over the last few years stretched out to 20-30 centimeters. For example, the length of the best cars of the current championship Mercedes W07 is 5005 m. the German edition Auto Motor und Sport reports that next year the cars will be added to the length even of 20 cm At least, Red Bull and Mercedes are going to increase the wheelbase, to optimize aerodynamics and weight machines.Meanwhile, the new regulation provides for the increase in the width of machine from 1800mm to 2000 mm, i.e. a return to the dimensions that were in effect until 1998.

The pilot of McLaren Fernando Alonso believes that Formula 1 needs to learn from football.Fernando Alonso "Sometimes we want to improve things that are already good enough. Take, for example, football. How many games end with the score 00 They are very boring, but that doesn't change the size of the penalty, and put in two gate keepers do not refuse goalies at all. In football, not changing the rules every week, because it's a sport.I think we had an amazing era with the motors V10 and V8. Sometimes it was necessary to improve safety, and there were minor changes that improved it. But I think it always happens we are always happy with more than what it was a few years ago".
