FIA open tender for standard gearbox suppliers in F1 from 2021

20 February 2019

The FIA has invited applications to tender for the sole supply of standardised gearbox, to be used by all F1 teams from the 2021 session onwards. The move would mark a change from the current system, which sees teams either make their own gearboxes, buy them as part of a complete package from their engine supplier, or in the case of Toro Rosso, use the gearbox from sister team Red Bull.

The fixed supply arrangement would, however, only extend to the gearbox cassette itself, and would therefore require teams to make their own gearbox housings, ensuring that they can continue to design their own suspension systems with unique mounting points and aero surfaces.

Anyone interested in the tender is required to submit their proposals before March 15, a decision is expected between April 15-30.
