What the FIA wasn’t spelling out was that at least 50 percent of the much trumpeted about savings in fuel is due to the regulations making sure the new 1.6l turbo engine power output will be at least 150hp less than the current v8 turbocharger and all, another big chunk of the fuel saving will come as a result of the fuel flow restriction which will further limit the hp output that can be used in a race distance, technically and in short hp output is directly related/dependent on the amount of fuel an engine can be made to burn in the right quantity for a given cylinder size, F1 chosen path to hp gain since the v10 era was by ever higher revs this because the output limit of a concentrated upon cylinder size has long been reached using the materials as allowed by the rules.
