Good evening,

Ian, the nature of the circuit wouldnt really mean the extra power is going to be usable apart from pulling away through the tunnel which then removes one of the overtaking spots. Can't see teams making a Monaco special either on cost grounds. I like the spirit of your idea though and seeing breakdowns used to be part and parcel of F1. I think the tyres idea though is workable because let's face it, the only overtaking at Monaco is going to be done in the pits.

Not so sure about cost grounds, remove the fuel flow restrictions and let's just see how much risk the engine makers want to take.

The mid 1980s had 1,000hp engines without electrical assistance and if F1 doesn't want to be extreme it might as well give up and let Formula E take over.

Once you get to a certain level, whether that be 1,200hp or 1,500hp you get to the point of the driver can't cope with the power so no more development is needed.

It is all about the driver, who can take a 15g corner, even if the car can do it with an autopilot at 17g?
