Wolff: F1 should not repeat the same mistakes with the new engine rules

Mario Brezovečki

The boss of Mercedes Toto Wolff warned that Formula 1 should focus on costs when enacting new drive unit regulations for 2026.

Wolff says the sport made a mistake when the current rules were drawn up because they proved too complex and too expensive. Those rules will be in effect for another five seasons, but discussions have already begun about what will replace them.

F1, the FIA ​​and manufacturers want to find the right balance of hybrid power and internal combustion, with sustainable fuels playing a key role. There is also a focus on the cost element as part of trying to attract new manufacturers.

"The discussion was very good. It is interesting where the car industry is going, because everything is developing in the direction of electric mobility, but there is also a new look at the internal combustion engine and the combination with electric drive. ”

- TOTO WOLFF

“I believe we should look at the costs. The development of a completely new power unit is not the path we should take. We know we made that mistake in 2011 and 2012 when we made a very sophisticated and at the same time very efficient drive unit, but it has become very complex. ”

"As things stand, I think we need to have a combination of what we have today - an internal combustion engine and add hybrid energy and power to have a better balance between sustainable energy propulsion and conventional ICE engines."

Wolff stressed that the cost of the engine program and the use of sustainable fuels are important to Mercedes.

"I don't think it's about simplification, it's just about not increasing costs. And apart from more electrical components with potentially larger or more powerful batteries, sustainable fuels are definitely the future. ”

    Wolff: F1 should not repeat the same mistakes with the new engine rules

    You mean give one team a notice half a year before the others?

        • The story is hollow from the start. When Merc got it in 2014 you started telling that story here.

          It is totally inconceivable to you that a top car manufacturer invests half a billion euros and wins. How's that, huh?

          It must be a scam and a scam. It is not jdooko who registered before the competition and then won the competition.
          You're funny.

          Plus the rules were supposed to be 2013, so they had another year free.

          So you confirm that Merc is not capable of winning in F1?

          Of course not. He who claims this is, to say the least, frivolous. But let me have doubts about a certain favoritism throughout this period. This story about the rules comes from F1, not from some forum, and what is true and what is not difficult, we will never know. You will always deny and I will doubt and that is it. It is not my goal to lead controversy anymore but if you have some evidence that denies that story please share so let’s close that chapter. We can talk about changing tires in the middle of the season another time
          Cheers

    • The answer for Mercedes lawyers and advisors on the portal. So let's repeat the material. Says Bernie 2015 like this. Mercedes people were in close contact with people from fie when the new engine regulations were being written. They knew some things before others and that's why they had such a good start that they kept this year as well. What Fia did was introduce tokens to ban development, that is, to limit development.
      Let’s tell the same story for 8 years. Here is this old news that can be found on foreign portals as well as on ours, so read it carefully and adopt it once and for all, because BE may have had strange views on sports in his era, but he had no reason to lie about this.

      https://www.gp1.hr/2015/03/ecclestone-mercedes-je-bio-u-bliskom-kontaktu-s-fia-om-kada-se-definirao-koncept-pogonske-jedinice/

      To me, the conclusion is simple. Bernie was found guilty in a German court of illegally acquiring ownership of f1. He paid $ 100 million to get out of court and probably sold Mercedes a shaking sport to who knows when. Because when you add up all the judges' decisions, checking Ferrari when Mecki stinks, and when Merc dominates, that's normal and nobody cares how much of a difference and benefits with tires, the secret test is obviously that Mercedes pushed and pushes because that's how it has to be. How many times have they looked through the fingers of Mercedes drivers for things other drivers get fines for? Bottas makes the jumpstart obvious and they assure us that it is not such a leg of healthy eyes. As a sensor, it did not detect movement. Well then they have a joker call, so they were confused in boxing. My people, we may have been trumpeting for 8 years, but Mercedes is currently in F1 the one who holds everyone else by the balls and everyone dances the way they play. And you tell your stories. I see with my own eyes what the goal is and that it is done by all possible means. Fia rides in bullets on DE boards with pirelli tires. Maybe that every thing wouldn't give any special meaning, but all this when mixed as a whole is a bit of a bitter taste in the mouth. Red bull dominated for 4 years but he dominated because he was the best and didn’t have to have someone else’s help to be the best for years. Ferrari dominated because he was the best and they just looked at how to trim their wings from tires to electronics and aerodynamics. All the teams they dominated before tried to dethrone them and they succeeded. Mercedes is trying to stay on the throne as long as possible. And the proof of all this is enumerated above. The fact that it is difficult for you individuals to accept this is your problem. I support Ferrari and RB "spread them on bread" because they were the best, and you could whine about newy, etc. because there were no others. And when you see that someone is in your brain next to healthy eyes, then it becomes disgusting, inattentive, etc. But everything has a beginning and an end, so this mockery of sports that was once called f1. Currently, according to estimates, f1 is followed by 15% of people compared to previous times. Even when you take into account all the nonsense grinds through the season, a guy like Wolf like crazy doesn't know where the smoke from the engine in Mercedes comes from, so how did they make a mercedes 2 from rp making us all crazy because we are cows so we can't see and everything just because it has its own share there to this nonsense with alpha males. The guy has totally lost his credibility with me because he started banging nonsense a couple of years ago. Mercedes uses all possible tricks to maintain an advantage, which it did not gain in the same conditions. It's not a sport, it's gay business. And do you know who resorts to this way of working? One who thinks that in the same conditions he cannot win. 😉😚

        The argument is on a "tell-tell" level, maybe even below that.
        I really wonder how people can force some conspiracy theories so much that they have no argument at all. Not only in sports but in general in a lot of things, but on this portal somehow "especially" sto And what is the biggest problem "other side" (often it is the logical one) with you does not exist at all and is not talked about, not brought in question so that it is at least partially true. Let's try to have such theories, so that you can steal it for your own benefit, everything would be clear to me, but you don't have it at all 😀.

        You discredited yourself when you wrote

        BE may have had strange views on sports in his era but had no reason to lie about this.

        … Means if Bernie, who we all know told everything and everything (whether necessary or not, true or false), if in your opinion there is no need to lie then he automatically tells the truth because it "suits" you.

        Please argue this 😂
        "Currently, according to estimates, f1 is followed by 15% of people compared to previous times"

        • When someone puts a link to you with a claim to the character that someone is referring to in this case like I am now, then the stories at the level told us are told. Please understand that we do not invent this out of our own heads, but there is evidence for these claims. If something is not clear to you, send inquiries to those who publish such news or to the statement-giver directly. As for these 15%, these are some estimates that I read somewhere a long time ago. Try to find the source yourself, you have a net like google. After all, is it difficult to see on our portals the number of people who comment and follow f1 and try to remember, for example, what it looked like after the races 10 or more years ago. Lp

          She didn't say that and then take what we see with our own eyes
          1. Ferrari engine stronger 2019, sensors installed and we still know everything
          Merc claims that the engine cannot be stronger
          Season 2020 merc engine stronger than before with the same side effects as ferkanov from 2019 sensor by fie nigdi ok
          2. Rims of rbr illegal
          After 2 years of the same on the measure of legal
          3. Ferrari's rear-view mirrors immediately next weekend illegal mici ca
          Das legal al only this year because in the middle of the season both ferkan and rbr would develop it and this way there is no sense in developing
          4. Judges and merc drivers need not mention vele
          Did she say all that or did you really not see those things?
          This is what we have seen and where is what we have not and cannot see…

        • Amg, I was working so I didn't have time for a longer answer so I'll follow up now. I'll answer like this from your head. According to the information written by this portal about the decline in popularity from 2011 to 2014, there was information that almost 100 million people less (600 + / 500 + mil watching races) watched the races in that time period. This is already the period when Red Bull dominated and the beginning of the Mercedes era. In recent years, they wrote that 2017 million people watched the 2018 325 races. The decline in ratings continued with the dominance of Mercedes, and try to imagine the ratings of 2005-2008, 2010 and where it came from. It is such an educatively realistic estimate that f1 has stopped being watched by over 10% of former viewers over more than 50 years. These estimates of 15% are probably exaggerated, (I think the source was race fans) but my opinion is that the number of viewers from before 2005,2006,2007,2008 to date has dropped by about 50-60%. This information is easily available online.

        Bernie also said that Mercedes helped Ferrari with engine development, that he and Mosley regularly helped Ferrari because it was always good to have a strong Ferrari. Let's not pretend that other teams are fairer, especially Ferrari.

        • Possibly, who says that's not true? That does not change the one above his statement in any way. To make a statement, you have to have some cover. If anyone knew what was going on in F1, I guess her boss knows at the time.

      • Before I answer you.

        Do we agree with the statement "Ferrari has always been privileged throughout history" or is Bernie talking nonsense here?

    I'm in favor of them going on gas, I don't think it's that hard to switch these meetings to the sequence… Bottle instead of a spare tire and half the job is done. I guess they won't screw up a lot on the certificate…
