KERS on F1 agenda for 2011

KERS on F1 agenda for 2011

Formula One teams are in broad agreement about a return of the KERS power boost system for 2011, though the device needs to become cheaper so that smaller teams can afford it.
Team principals met with Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone at this weekend's Malaysian Grand Prix to discuss possible regulation changes, and the reintroduction of KERS was high on the agenda for 2011.
"There's general agreement it should have a place in Formula One," Williams team principal Sir Frank Williams said Saturday.
KERS was used in 2009 but scrapped for 2010 on a consensus decision among teams. However it was never taken out of the F1 rules and could return with a simple agreement at the Formula One Teams Association.
