Sebastian Vettel has revealed he is no fan of KERS or F1's planned switch to a four-cylinder engine format in 2013.
Asked by the sport's official website which current regulations he would like to change, the reigning world champion answered: "I would put a V12 engine in the car -- (I'm) against all the four-cylinder advocacy."
F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone, who is openly pushing against FIA president Jean Todt at present, is a keen supporter of 23-year-old Vettel.
At F1.com, the German continued: "I would take KERS off the car and put a V12 in. That would be 'greener' than what we have now!"

Ecclestone has said he is worried about the sound of the small turbo engines in 2013, but other observers say his stance is the opening salvo in a power struggle with Todt and the FIA.
Vettel said: "I definitely would go for a lot of power, a nice sound -- some brutal machinery so that you have to rise above yourself every time you jump back into the car."
