Letters: October 2018

F1’s engine struggles Having recently become aware that 2021’s fabulous new Formula 1 engine rules are no longer, it seems to me that Mark Hughes is right – the manufacturers have too much say in what is going to happen, so Liberty and the FIA need to come to terms with the need to have independent rules created to foster improved competition. The way to achieve that is to have an F1 engine class...
