    No disagreement. That engine sounds wonderful and I'd happily trade these (expletive) "power units" for same.

    For my money, though, and I know this horse has been beaten into glue, the 3L V10's are still at the top of the heap.

    Those are also really good, as are the old 12-cylinders Ferrari made.
    Interested in vintage cars? Ever thought about racing one?

    thats an mp4/5, it has a scoop and not just a roll hoop. Thus its a v10 car.

    I made a mistake, I beg your forgiveness. Apparently me agreeing with you once wasn't enough.

    Anyone else see this? I know PF1 is a little sensationalistic, but this could be something interesting:

    Maybe a change in direction for VW since the diesel scandal thing?

    Weird, considering they denied any interest in F1 when they were rumored to be in talks with RBR a couple years ago.

    I can understand them re-considering their decision because we have a new ownership in F1 - who are ready to do whatever it takes to improve the show, improve media restrictions, improve how monies get distributed to ALL the teams etc.

    I wont be surprised if we have some new manufacturers re-consider their F1 programs, due to Liberty media now being at the helm of running F1

    Considering they're hemorrhaging billions or the diesel issue, I'm surprised they have an extra pot for funding an engine program. I'd love to see them come in though. Maybe even as a works team - Porsche F1 would just be amazing. A distant dream though, I know.

    VW Group will only enter a sport if they can first buy themselves favourable rules, and an insurmountable advantage in some way against all other competitors (usually by entering when all other manufacturers leave the sport). The only exception is DTM.

    So no, nothing points to VW entering F1 unless Liberty Media is very corrupt and make some underhanded deal with VW which will give them an amazing advantage.

    You have to be kidding? That's the most blatant example: VW Group's entry into Le Mans and then utilising that rule lobbying and completely empty series to gain an advantage that they clung onto for years and years!
