Williams Toyota Still Toying with KERS for 2010

KERS - Kinetic Energy Recovery System

KERS - Kinetic Energy Recovery System

Williams Toyota is still considering running KERS (kinetic energy recovery system) in the 2010 Formula 1 season. This would conflict with the FOTA’s ban KERS in 2010 but Williams is not apart of FOTA as they chose to break ranks and sign up for the 2010 Formula 1 season during the FOTA vs. FIA battle.

The FOTA KERS ban is considered a gentleman’s agreement among the FOTA members but Williams has continued to develop their flywheel KERS system throughout the year as the technical regulations will permit teams to use the controversial hybrid system in 2010.

One FOTA member that may want to consider reviewing the KERS ban is McLaren, who have built a reliable system and used it in many races this season.

  1. The idea of pushing the envelop in racing is the basis of the spirit of Formula 1 and KERS is a performance enhancer and can provide higher levels of performance if the FIA would not place restrictions on the amount of energy input or output.
