I would love to see a much wider range on engines. I love the sound of the current V6 turbos, however I miss the sound of the 3L V10, and absolutely adore the sound of the old Alfa flat-12.

My recommendation would be as follows:

- Allow use of any engine configuration, however has to comply to certain displacement depending on said engine configuration.

- Regulations that were far less limited for aero. I think the current regs are far to restrictive, and in my opinion, is pushing another potential "ground effects/double diffuser" moment from being discovered.

As a side point, for someone who is heavily into F1, the current setup is not doing the fans any favours. The current working group is failing, and loosing fans as a result.

WEC has some interesting loose engine rules. Something like that?

Yeah absolutely. I think just the fact that attending a race, and having a huge variety of different sounds would make it far more enjoyable.
