Max Verstappen Expresses Concerns over F1 2026 Rules and Potential Development War
Max Verstappen, the current Formula 1 World Champion, has voiced his worries about the upcoming F1 2026 regulations, echoing the concerns raised by his team principal Christian Horner.
The 2026 engine regulation changes aim to increase the power generated from electrical components, particularly the MGU-K. The plan is for the MGU-K to produce around 350kW of electrical power, almost triple its current output. However, Verstappen is concerned that the increased reliance on batteries and the 50/50 division between the internal combustion engine (ICE) and electrical power could lead to cars not being able to produce enough energy.
