McLaren approaching for KERS come again

The McLaren F1 team has said that it would favor to see the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) make a come again to F1 sooner rather than later. The mechanism is not being used this season, due to contract with teams, although it remains in the FIA technical policy and could return as early as next season.

Initiate to Formula 1 for what was apparently a sole season in 2009, KERS was outlawed courtesy of a gentleman’s agreement among the teams due to being expensive to develop and run. However, with Ferrari and Renault having said that they are able to develop cheap universal systems for 2011, the device could also help to promote the sport’s environmentally-friendly image.

“We fully support what FOTA and the FIA are trying to do, in terms of KERS,” Tim Goss, McLaren’s Chief Engineer, explained during a phone-in on Wednesday. “Clearly, it’s starting to get a little bit late in the day to introduce it for next season but there are lots of people working on it.

“We do understand the need for KERS, for the association with road car technology, and we think it’s the right thing to bring it back – really, we’ll just go along with whatever FOTA and the FIA decide.”
