Maybe I was too quick to put them down. Looks like they will still be V6 powered, the hybrid stuff will be used as a power booster to pass. This article goes into more detail. https://racer.com/2019/08/01/hybrid-...ngine-in-2022/

I'm like Torchie, Indy was more enjoyable back in the 70's before they made them go to a spec engine. Kinda like NASCAR and their fake cars, but that's another story....

F1 has been using a regen/boost for several years. I think there's is a limited boost to pass or if not used, it is directed into the acceleration map to help hide turbo lag.

Either way, it means they'll go faster! I ain't gonna argue against more speed!
