    “I think the current hybrid powertrains are underestimated. There is far too little talk about how efficient these engines are.

    “In 2013, they burned 180 kilograms of petrol for a race distance. Today we need 100 kilograms for the same distance but with much more power.

    “Okay, we’ve lost the sound a bit, and for nostalgics like me that hurts a bit, but it’s about finding the best compromise and getting the best of both worlds.”

    F1 authorities are trying their best to appease Sainz’s demands for more intense racing with the new cars slated to come in for the 2022 season. The new vehicles are designed to reduce the loss of downforce that the current vehicles experience when driving off a leading car, ideally resulting in more exciting chases.

    F1 returns this season on August 27 after the three-week summer break for the Belgian Grand Prix weekend at Spa-Francorchamps.
