> F1NEWS> d FIA see eye to eye is pushing hard to introduce standardised KERS units from 2010. Given the amount of time and effort already spent on the units, such a shift would appear to be an almighty waste but the costs of singular development of a standardised unit, as suggested by Flavio Briatore at the European Grand Prix as by far the most sensible option for the technology, will be much smaller. FIA President Max Mosley is determined that KERS will remain a technology to be developed by individual teams, but that he will press on with his universally condemned plans to introduce standardised engines in Formula 1. “KERS will be essential on all road-going vehicles in the future, irrespective of their means of primary propulsion,”Mosley told Reuters. “The FIA therefore intends to keep KERS as a performance differentiator in Formula 1 and, indeed, increase its importance in 2011. “To standardise a new technology which is directly relevant to the biggest single problem confronting road transport ¬– energy efficiency – while allowing continued development in wholly irrelevant areas such as Formula 1 aerodynamics, is not rational. Technologies like KERS, as well as the recovery and re- use of exhaust energy and heat, should be the future performance differentiators in F1, not old or useless technologies such as ultra- high-speed engines or F1-specific aerodynamics.” Images used in GPWEEK are shot by the photo-artists at Sutton Images.
