I was reading a comment by Alionora ; Each driver may have four engines. Four engines x four races per engine = 16 engines.

Check the calender. Number of races? 17.

In other words, anyone designing an engine to the regulations will find that they get a ten-place grid penalty in Abu Dhabi, simply because the normal life of the engine specified will be insufficient for the calende

I'm not a big fan of the tyre warmer ban or the refueling ban. That's taking things a bit too far. I can see starts getting very boring. Also, this means that we won't see the kind of thing we saw with Vettel winning Monza because of a decent strategy. Those who are fast will stay fast, those who aren't will lag behind.
