Jean Todt Formula-1 too reliable
The President of the FIA Jean Todt, the recently reelected for a third term, believes that the level of reliability Formula 1 has become too high.He noted that cars often can go a full season without mechanical problems, that shows how much money on development and parts have been spent.Referring to Lewis Hamilton, the FIA President told Auto Bild "He didn't commit any mistakes, but he was also extremely reliable and efficient car. Even if Mercedes wasn't always the fastest, Lewis scored points in 20 of the 20 Grand Prix. The cars are too reliable.Ferrari also impressed me. Ferrari and Mercedes were very reliable, and it cost a lot of money. Tests, simulation is too much. We don't need all this for interesting racing.The current engines are too expensive, too complicated and too quiet. But we have to work with them. We are currently talking with the producers about the evolution of existing engines".
