FIA President Jean Todt has said that KERS may well be on the cards for a return to F1 in 2011.
The Kinetic Energy Recovery System was used by a few teams last season, but has been abandoned by most on the basis of cost and unreliability. In recent weeks its return has seemed possible as F1 continues to strive to be relevant to road-car technology.
Today, Todt told the Associated Press he was “very serious” about KERS making a comeback in 2011. He also emphasised that teams needed to be able to survive financially and the sport needed to be “an ambassador to new technologies.”
