LONDON (Reuters) – Formula One should be pushing for even greater fuel economy next season rather than talking about ‘completely unrealistic’ ways of changing the rules, according to Mercedes technical head Paddy Lowe.

The start of the season has been dominated by talk of tweaking the new rules to make cars louder and possibly relaxing the strict limit of 100kg of fuel per car per race or making races shorter.

Formula One still has a license to thrill

LONDON (Reuters) – Those who feared the wheels were about to fall off Formula One had better think again.

The sport has come in for a fuel tank full of criticism lately, much of it self-inflicted, but Sunday’s Bahrain Grand Prix broke the negative spiral with a race that lit up the track in more ways than one.
