it does seem all a bit contrived at times.... and it is one of the things we all "debate".
I don't mind the fuel limits, as pushing the designers to do more with less could have practical value for road-going cars. However, I think the rules should mandate a fixed energy (as equivalent gallons of gasoline) limit and NOT also specify the engine architecture (or at least leave it much less constrained). Then you might get some truly innovative ideas, rather than incremental improvements on existing technology. Oval pistoned V16s that rev to 25000 RPM? Sure!
