Brawn – Formula 1 Happy To Help
One of Formula 1’s managing directors, Ross Brawn, revealed the F1 giants are happy to help new as well as existing engine outfits in getting up to speed with the sport…..
Ross offered new engine suppliers who desire to enter the sport in the future, the necessary help to enter to get to grips with the sport.
Ross even offered to help the struggling Honda to who have been having a hard time getting upgrades to McLaren.
“We’re not about to go in and negotiate special engineering terms for Honda,” Brawn explained.
“I’m not proposing that I go in and tell Honda how they should design their engine, but if we in F1 can help them achieve their ambitions, then we will.”
“If Honda were to approach us for help, and it was something within our capability – as in not something that would create an unfair competition – then we would help.”
Ross even offered to help those teams after 2020 in getting into the sport and getting to grips with Formula 1.
“Under the new regulations, we’ll have to give consideration to new manufacturers who join after the start date, and acknowledge they might need additional support initially,” Ross continued.
“If you recall the token system, perhaps a new entrant might get more development tokens for the first couple of years – there are some smart initiatives you can use to encourage people into F1.”
