Ferrari and Renault have submitted low-cost proposals for KERS

After the Formula One Teams Association meeting on Wednesday, Ferrari and Renault have submitted low-cost offer for a come back to the sport of the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS)

Initiate for the start of 2009 season, KERS permitted drivers to like a brief horsepower boost in order to aid passing although a selection of teams – including Williams, which developed a innovatory flywheel-powered device – elected not to run the system, which costed anything in the region of 8 to 20 million pounds.

But, the Grove team’s Technical Director has now exposed that the system could return. “Basically, Ferrari and Renault put forward proposals that they could do KERS for less than a million euros (£870,000 approx),” Sam Michael told Reuters.

Those have been acknowledged but what Ferrari and Renault are both telling is that, unless we boost the energy level from the current 400 kilojoules up to 600 or 800 – to make KERS more useful – they are not ready at this stage to commit that they will actually do KERS.

The Sam Michael said that a final FOTA plans concerning KERS for 2011 hopes to be in place by next weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix, noting that Renault would supply any team wishing to purchase the system whereas Ferrari would provide its unit to those using its engines.

Wednesday also involved discussions regarding tyre supply for next year; with Bridgestone departing the sport, Michael confirmed that the most likely replacement would be either Michelin or Cooper Avon.
