Based on some viewpoints why would we want to see these cars in historics. They’re not liked. No one watches and F1 is dying so no need to keep this for historics.

I am sure that these clowns would be quite happy to ruin historic racing with a couple of cars run by their parent organization.

If one of the current Mercedes cars ever makes it into private hands and on to a historic grid, they will rebuild it for $10 million plus inflation.
I would love to put a behind this post, but I suspect it is more accurate and literal than I would like it to be.

Limiting the number of engines per season may be good on paper, but as we saw last season it can just lead to too many grid penalties, meaning qualifying becomes pointless

Yep, and they will still blow up 100+ engines at the factory over the course of the year chasing performance and reliability. I just think its a false economy.

If a customer is paying $85 million dollars for the supply of six power units over a season, I think we can quite safely say there are a number of false economies going on.

I have found a secret video of some of the simulator testing F1 have been performing. In this example they are considering Motocross style starts! First corner should be interesting...
