Recall the “Single Engine” F1 theory?

I imagine you all recall that idea that Max had about making F1 a single-source engine series? In essence all teams would build an engine per Max’s spec’s or buy one from a company that builds them for teams. In fact, Max even offered a tender process to award a company the exclusive rights to be the maker of the FIA standard engine.

Most of us were throwing up a little bit in our mouths over that and gave it little notice as its obvious and glaring idiocy outweighed its legitimacy but it seems we could all be wrong. Yes, it is now being suggest that Ilmor, you know them from the Mercedes/Imor/McLaren days, are the front runners for the tender. They faced off Cosworth, Mecachrome, Zytek and Judd, Auto Motor und Sport revealed.
