The proposal for an alternative F1 engine has been voted down by the F1 Commission. However, it seems that during the discussions the various parties agreed to guarantee the supply of power units to all teams; that there needs to be a lower price for customer teams; that the power units need to be less technical (whatever that means) and that noise needs to be improved. The FIA and the manufacturers will present a proposal by January 15 that will solve the above problems. This will include a rule that will establish the minimum number of teams that a manufacturer must supply. The first meeting to discuss this will be in Abu Dhabi. There were four expressions of interest for the alternative customer engine, but the F1 Commission rejected the idea, although the FIA is saying that it could be revived if it is not happy with the proposals from the manufacturers.
