"The maximum power of the new Power Unit will exceed the output of current V8 F1 engines however fuel efficiency will be radically improved. " I probably know more about turbo's and air/fuel ratios than you so I understand how a Turbocharged motor can have more power per unit capacity. To pretend that the V8's are not fuel efficient is ignorant at best. Next year's cars will only get more mileage if they are producing less power, and then tack on the extra heat of the turbo having to lower the compression ratio and produce less torque per concentration of fuel ... To add more weight to the car, you will only add to the cost of fuel per unit time. This is not efficiency, its selling austerity, but making it seem cool.
