Aston Martin - Cosworth F1 engine

AM & Cosworth F1......... FFS get a room!!!!!!

https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/m...rmula-1-engine

All I'm seeing is Andy Palmer and Christian Horner flirting with each other in the press, now Bruce Wood from Cosworth is joining it....pass the sick-bucket!......just get on with it!!!!!

Really from my side, every last Cosworth F1 engine has done nothing special, normally ok in performance, but trimmed down too light and therefore too flimsy as a fully stressed chassis structure, and reject far too much heat requiring big radiators and therefore poor aero performance back in the V8 NA days

Cosworth have no recent turbocharging experience in high-level motorsport......if I was Andy Palmer I'd be knocking on Ilmors door and doing a deal with Mario Illien, as they have recent F1 turbo experience, not to mention IRL-turbo experience.......I think Cosworth are a shadow of their former selves and trading on their past.

The only way to open up F1 engine supply to independent manufacturers like Cosworth and Ilmor (and Zytek and Mugen and maybe Roush) is to simplify the spec drastically and introduce a price cap, and I donít think it will happen.

Itís a shame we donít see more of those names. There was that PURE Turbo engine that never got off the ground

I'm sceptical about Aston Martin doing F1 at all. They are a small company, not profitable (I think) and F1 isn't cheap. I think Andy Palmer has great plans but is it all talk for publicity? I feel like I know the guy I've seen and heard him so much. I couldn't tell you who the previous AM head was. I really can't see how AM can afford F1, even with the likes of Cosworth.
