Cosworth looks to return to F1 in 2021
Cosworth is expected to be preparing to return to if F1, aiming to help frame the new engine rules for 2021.
It is understood that Cosworth has started to commit resources to an F1 project, pushing for a simpler and cheaper turbo hybrid V6.
Cosworth’s chief executive Hal Reisiger said it had the support from existing teams and already had verbal agreements with some of them to become an engine partner.
Reisiger believes Cosworth would be suited to return into F1 if the engine regulations should change but it would have to be compelling change that would move F1 away from heat energy recovery, due to its expense and time consumption.
The business has agreed to play a significant role in new F1 working groups being set up to finalise the 2021 rules and has stated that F1 has to make some changes if it wants a new engine supplier for 2021.
