The news of the week, and perhaps of the year, is that the brand Sling, will leave the Formula 1 at the end of 2021. The Japanese engine manufacturer assured that due to a policy on climate change, they want to venture into other modalities, so they decided to leave the category. However, in the last hours a novelty was confirmed that will annoy many fans.
Sling confirmed this Saturday to renew the supply of engines in the IndyCar. The American category will enter a new era, the hybrid. like the Formula 1, since IndyCar they want to begin to internalize in aid for climate change. However, this will happen in the 2023 season.
The decision of Sling draws attention, since the Formula 1 they are fully immersed in the hybrid era, yet they do not want to continue. This can make it clear that the move taken by the category in 2014 was a very serious mistake. Cars dabbled in new engines that season, and a key essence was lost. The equality, the noise, and the audience went under.
Sling will follow, along with Chevrolet, your way in the IndyCar, which for many experts will be considered as a betrayal of the Formula 1. The return of Sling in 2015 it was horrible. Beside Mclaren they had the slowest car on the grid and Fernando Alonso He even radioed «GP2 engine (Currently Formula 2) ». However, with Red bull they achieved a great performance, getting some victories.
Bikers went from being five in 2013, to starting to leave. After his departure, the distribution of the power units will have a trinomial: Mercedes, Ferrari Y Renault. That is why it is very likely that these three teams will have dominance in the category in the coming seasons, taking into account that being their clients, the rest will have worse engines.
