The estimated 600 hp output (as per the FIA intentions) of the 1.6l turbo v6 will be the max engine output and of course that will be at maximum revs. The estimated (again as per the FIA) additional electrical power output (harnessed through brakes “Kinetic” and exhaust “heat”) added to the crankshaft will be for approx 33 seconds per lap. Because of the fuel flow rate of (100kg/hr) and also because of the fuel load limit of (100 kg) for a race distance (remember that a race is more than one hour long) maximum revs and therefore maximum power output from the engine will be avoided, in fact the latest information I have says teams will redline their engines at 12k rpm. The 2014 cars will be much slower than the current cars and according to the vast majority of fans that visited you tube for the Renault lunch the sound is like that of a vacuum cleaner.
