Ferrari EngineFOM Chief Bernie Ecclestone and FIA President Max Mosley, seem to have found a solution in order to cut drastically Formula One costs: a standard engine for all F1 teams starting from 2010 season. “The thing I am most excited about is pushing and pushing and pushing the homologated engine idea. The new engine will be equalised and there will only be two engine changes a year, so costs are going to dramatically come down, and I mean dramatically,” Ecclestone told The Times.

According to Ecclestone’s and Mosley’s new proposal, engine manufacturers such as Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and BMW, will be able to assemble those – identical to those of their rivals – standard engines and will have the right to label them with their own brand. Teams without manufacturer support instead, will have access to the same engine through an independent contractor.
