pcxmac The text below refers to an extract from Grand Prix 247 "The maximum power of the new Power Unit will exceed the output of current V8 F1 engines however fuel efficiency will be radically improved. With only 100kg permitted for the race, the new units will use 35% less fuel than their predecessors." I'm afraid I didn't understand your post as it was too tecnical for me. The fact that the new engines will use less fuel doesn't necessarily mean they will be less powerful, however it does seem that the basic power before kers etc is employed may only be 600 hbp as opposed to 760 (?) from current engines. The lap times will tell us the true story as will the drivers comments on the amount of grunt delivered.
