As reported on Reuters

Formula One’s governing body has agreed with Ferrari, Renault and engine maker Cosworth that engine regulations should be frozen from 2008 to 2012.

However, certain modifications would be allowed on an annual basis, provided details were provided to the governing body before the start of each calendar year in question and a complete engine was delivered by Feb 1.

“No modification will be permitted which, in the opinion of the FIA, may result in a performance gain,” the statement added.

Well, and we thought 3-Year ban on engine developement was BAD !!!!

    As I said, use the Corolla or even the M800 engines.

    M800 would be most cost effective.
