Cosworth – FIA’s oh s**t plan


After the sudden departure of the Honda F1 team yesterday, the FIA has announced that Cosworth is the leading canidate to become the spec-engine supplier for Formula 1 in 2010 if the plan is accepted with the teams & drivers. There would also be a spec-gearbox made by Xtrac and Ricardo Transmissions (XR).

The new Cosworth piece would either be a V10 built exclusively by Cosworth and distributed by the teams, or the engine would remain a current “frozen” engine that would be built to the specifications of Cosworth and the FIA, either way the XR transmission will find its way to be the standard gearbox in 2010 with the engine decision still in the air.

Many teams have resented the idea of a spec engine and hope that there will not be a standard engine for 2010.
