Sauber and Force India are rumored to be having financial issues. I wonder if three car teams are an option next year?
56 laps @ 2.5 kg fuel use during the lap = 140 kg for the race That was in last year's cars. This year, they have to do the same distance on 100 kg. In terms of fuel economy, they have to get 5.3 mpg to go race distance.
Fuel economy has improved quite a bit this year. Unfortunately it's the only thing that has.
