Bernie Ecclestone to propose return of V10 engines in F1


Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone wants to bring back the growling V10 engines that were once common place on the starting grid. In a meeting with journalists this week, Ecclestone said he intends to bring up the idea of re-introducing the louder 'normally aspirated' engines for 2016 at the next meeting of F1's top bosses.

Formula 1 teams are currently limited to using 1.6-litre V6 engines, but Ecclestone wants manufacturers to go back to their roots and make bigger engines with more roar.
