  • Ferrari willing to agree to Red Bull's engine freeze proposal

Ferrari in a shock move has agreed to support Red Bull's demand of engine freeze, as the latter feels it wouldn't be able to deliver a power unit to its team when Honda leaves the sport unless there is no engine freeze.

"I think all of the manufacturers, all of the CEOs of the automotive industry recognise that the investment of cost in these engines, particularly with a new technology coming for 2026, maybe 2025, it doesn't make sense to keep investing hundreds of millions of dollars in these engines".

Following the announcement of Honda's exit from F1 at the end of 2021, Red Bull is scrambling to secure an engine deal for both its teams by the end of the year.

"I think that's positive news for Formula 1", Horner said.

"Knowing the situation and understanding the situation, it's not the first time that Ferrari is acting in a responsible way in that respect". We had meetings in the last days with F1 and the FIA.

Team boss Mattia Binotto confirmed on Thursday that Ferrari will support a freeze for engine regulations starting in 2022, having previously been "firmly against it" even though rivals Mercedes supported it.

"It has to be more sustainable in terms of cost, I think the power unit should cost 50% less of what we are spending today, and in order to achieve that I think it is somehow a very hard exercise to decide what technical format it is".

"Talks are ongoing moment with the FIA, with F1, if we should consider a mechanism of engine convergence, if there is any situation where eventually a manufacturer is really down on performance compared to the others", explained the Swiss engineer.

"Because then it's freezing for three years the relative performance between manufacturers".

Binotto said that clarity on F1's future engine platform would be required by mid-2021.

Formula One plans to introduce a new power unit in 2026, but may bring that forward to 2025.

But Binotto said provisions would have to be made to ensure no manufacturer has a significant advantage locked in place by the freeze as well as taking into consideration the switch to more sustainable fuel in 2022, which is set to include a 10 percent blend of sustainable ethanol. I think the power unit should cost 50% what we are affording today. We need to have clear objectives to share, and then we need to decide the technical format, and I think mid of next year it should be very clear, and in that respect it will be very hard and ambitious.

"I think it will be quite a different power unit to today, because I think there are, at least from the Ferrari point of view, important objectives that need to be set, as for example quite a different cost. That will define the future of F1 from 2025 to 2030".
