Cosworth happy with engine performance

Cosworth pleased with more solid running for the CA2010 engine in Melbourne
Cosworth's F1 business unit general manager Mark Gallagher has declared himself pleased with the performance of the CA2010 engine following the second round of the F1 season in Australia.

Rubens Barrichello secured more points for Williams with an eighth place finish, while both Lotus and Hispania Racing brought one car home to the finish – the latter for the first time.

It allowed Cosworth to add more mileage to its new engine, with none of the teams reporting any issues over the course of the weekend, and Gallagher said the company now had a better idea of any potential deficiencies that need to be worked on.

“Another satisfactory race weekend from an engine point of view,” he said. “Our teams were all able to put good mileage on their engines in Australia and we experienced no mechanical problems over the three days. The race was certainly exciting and it was good to see Rubens pick up more championship points for Williams-Cosworth. Well done also to HRT for achieving their first race finish with Karun.

“After two race weekends, we have a better understanding of where performance deficits lie within each of the chassis-engine packages of our four teams. We are pleased with the performance of the CA2010 so far, but we are working hard with each of our teams to optimise performance. I should also add that hard work and dedication of the Cosworth track support technicians and the staff back at our UK base have helped ensure these first Grands Prix have gone as well as they have.”

A total of eleven Cosworth engines have now been used by the four teams, with the only unexpected replacement coming for Hispania's Bruno Senna – who was forced into a change due to a chassis-related failure in Bahrain.

Powerline, My god you are such a cretin!!!! Do you know anything of the history behind Cosworth? They have NEVER produced a duff engine. Champions who used Cosworth V8's include Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Jackie Stewart, Emerson Fitipaldi etc.etc. Indycars used Cosworth engines for many years and won many championships' This engine is fresh out of the box and produced in double quick time and I have no doubt whatsoever that in the right chassis it will win many races in years to come.
