The electric turbo in an F1 car increased thermal efficiency 5%. It is a big mistake to let this break through die. They will now have to burn more fuel to make the same power.
Cowell said engine manufacturers would now need to develop anti-lag systems for the turbocharged engines as the MGU-H is "the most marvellous anti-lag system because it gives you speed control".

He added: "We'll have to come up with various systems and devices and that will probably involve burning some fuel through the exhaust, which doesn't feel the most honourable thing to do as an engineer.
