That is to say, this will require the team to publish the design of certain parts online, allowing others to imitate and implement standardized parts in different ways.

The F1 team supports the open source design proposal. "this is a new idea that requires reasonable communication to transform it from a promising concept to a deliverable reality, but I think it's worth exploring," said Mercedes Technical Director James Allison, who believes that open source systems will be built step by step and that eventually there will be large enough databases to store different solutions. In the end, the best design will permeate all teams and standardize through the survival of the fittest in F1 design style. And he said: "this is no longer any of us especially want to spend development funds, because there is a good design."

Ferrari and Red Bull also support the open source proposal.

Paul Monaghan, Red Bull's chief engineer, said the team needed to think about which parts to put and remove. "I think this will protect the sport from any errors in standard parts that can cause a lot of problems and difficulties, and we are happy to be part of the open source proposal."

Ferrari Sports Director Laurent Mekies thinks the concept of open source is better than standard parts. "it may be a bit complicated to come up with another way to categorize F1 parts, but we support the fact that if this avoids the risk of having standard parts," he said.
