episode 2: 2: F1's Hybrid Two-Stroke Formula: Will The Teams Agree?

Formula 1's next engine formula could be a hybrid two-stroke powered by eco fuels. Yes, when Pat Symonds expressed what the future could be like, we shook our heads in disbelief, too. Isn't two-stroke technology archaic in the world of automobiles? If Formula 1 goes down this road, it will be a perception vs. technology battle on all quarters. But before all else, will the existing (and new, if they're coming) power unit manufacturers agree to such a formula? After all, someone's got to build those power units. Also in this episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast ( , we discuss some of the many outrageous pieces of news and stories in this winter season. Are certain elements deliberately making statements to keep our attention in the off-season? We're deliberating releasing an episode every week to keep you entertained, that's for sure. :D Tune in! (Season 2020, Episode 02) 0:00-3:00 - Should Formula 1 switch to a hybrid two-stroke eco-fuel formula from 2025? It's perception vs. technology! 03:00-06:00 - The key questions for the hybrid two-stroke eco-fuel formula: 1) how much horsepower? 2) how efficient? 3) can they actually use alternative fuels? 6:00-9:00 - Porsche built a hybrid-turbo Formula 1 engine only to scrap it all and join the all-electric Formula E series. Will the hybrid two-stroke formula attract power unit manufacturers at all? 9:00-12:00 - Charles Leclerc's sky-diving badassery. But do you know what did Leclerc flaunt after signing his five-year extension with Ferrari? 12:00-15:00 - Any driver in the world of Motorsport of the same breed as Fernando Alonso? Lewis Hamilton to join Keanu Reeves in the remake of The Matrix? 15:00-18:00 - Alexander Albon's reverse psychological tricks on Helmut Marko; he's actually trolling Marko in case a demotion to Toro Rosso comes his way in 2020. Come to think of it, Albon's true rival is Marko and not Max Verstappen! End - Alternate career for Cyril Abiteboul - a politician?
