Anyways, I also created it because it is very worrying to me. I know engines have varied in the past but now, they are so hard up on fuel efficiency that I don´t see v12s or v10s making a comeback any time soon and considering the v8s had a 7 year streak, it seems like the v6s are here to stay for a long while…
Why on earth would they? In the past it has all been experimenting and seeing what would be loudest and fastest. It’s not the 1980′s any more. We’re in the 21st century, oil is running out and the human race is far more aware of pollution’s affect on the atmosphere. So why are some people thinking that V6 Turbos are just a flash in the pan? Why are you expecting massive V12 engines to reappear? because they won’t. This is the way engines are heading in the real world and now in motorsport, and one day they will be powered by alternative means.
So either enjoy the V6 Turbos whilst they last, or go and find something else to do with your time.
RE: the original post. It was not by definition a joke, neither was it funny. It was a mildly interesting statement at best.
My answer to it? I should think the V6 Turbos will be around for enough years for Vettel to see out his F1 career.
