An engine development ‘freeze’ in Formula 1 is set to be introduced from 2022 after it gained unanimous approval in a meeting of the F1 Commission. In a move which is set to pave the way for Red Bull to take over the running of Honda’s engines from next year when the Japanese manufacturer leaves the sport, engine development for all manufacturers will be stopped at the end of this year for the remainder of the sport’s current engine era.

“All teams recognised the major importance of engaging fans in new and innovative ways to ensure an even more exciting weekend format,” read a joint FIA-F1 statement. “There was, therefore, broad support from all parties for a new qualifying format at some races, and a working group has been tasked with creating a complete plan with the aim to reach a final decision before the start for the 2021 Championship.”
