I'm one of the purists that love that turbo power is coming back. The Merc guy saying there will be much more torque which will be great for lovers of oversteer (waiting to see how Newey will get around that one, as loop holes are running out for extra downforce) @ Sunny - Interesting with the turbo in the Merc pic, it is a "one" piece (turbine & compressor together) like a normal turbo but with a big covered shaft area to run the ERS off, but ??? Isn't this type of turbo called "compounding" when you run extra driven devices off the shaft. Extra ???? 1- Obviously they show no headers/exhaust manifolds so one could suggest they will still run a big external wastegate ? 2- Will they run 1 intercooler in the air intake duct instead of 1 on 1 side or 2 on both, or will they try water to air and try and squeeze extra power that way regardless of weight ? 3- Will they allow extra boost to be run in Quali ?
