Engine Suppliers Championship?

just read this on Autosport :-

A third world championship could be created for Formula 1's engine manufacturers, according to a plan outlined by motorsport boss Max Mosley.

According to today's Guardian, the president of governing body the FIA circulated a letter to the F1 teams over the Monaco Grand Prix weekend explaining an idea that if all the engine makes could supply two outfits, they could score points for the new championship with both.

For example, Cosworth supplies engines to Jaguar and Arrows this year. Both teams could contribute to the company's points tally for the manufacturers' title over a season. The idea could create more interest to add to the battles for the drivers' and car constructors' championships.

The FIA claims that the manufacturers will be able to afford supplying two teams from 2004 because of the one engine per weekend rule that will come into effect that year. Currently only Cosworth, Honda and Ferrari supply more than one team. BMW, Renault, Mercedes, Toyota and Asiatech only power single teams.

Re: Engine Suppliers Championship?

Great idea! Ferrari might supply Sauber an up to date engine so that they can secure the manufacturers title as well....who knows Sauber might be the top 3 after all in light of that idea

it will be a forgone conclusion between the top three engine manufacturers before they even start thou'...... ferrari, merc and bmw will be fighting it out (a bmw in the back of a jordan sounds very conducive to the requirements!)

ford might aswell give up though, Jaguar and Arrows, i know Heinz has done well to get Arrows 2 points, but with a total of 5 points between 2 teams, hardly gonna set the world alight is it!
