I like the idea. It might create a scenario where the championship is down to the fastest lap.

The two WDC contenders can still fight and defend even in different positions.
We will see how that work out throughout the season.

Remember, stuff like the turbo/hybrid engines were demanded by the manufacturers.

That way the hundreds of millions of spent developing the engines/technology would be relevant for their road car divisions.

21k RPM small displacement V10s and V8s, that idle at 4k RPMs don't really apply to real world.

I agree. Seems as though they could have just hybrized the existing V8s for cheaper.

It was. KERS or Kinetic Energy Recovery System was introduced in 2009 or so on a voluntary basis then mandatory later on.

Energy recovery + the 20,000 RPM sound = nirvana.

Yes, but the V6 increased the amount of recovery allowed with KERS while also TERS.

20k RPM, turbo V8. That would be delicious and probably too fast, for the FIA at least.

The current speculation is that Mercedes PU is around 1000hp when deploying KERS at the full rate.
