Best Power Engine was the M5's V10.

In the 1.4 - 1.8 litre class the new Mini's 1.6 litre turbo engine won the award.

BMW engine has always beed one of the most powerful engine on the grid. It's just aerodynamics/tire setup that lets the car down.

But this year BMW-Sauber has made a lot of progress and currenlty ranking at #3 behind McLaren and Ferrari.
