F1 » Mercedes could have quit F1 over engines


richard - check your facts - there's a lot of stuff on this on the net - much of which has cast a different light. Not least being the inconsistent penalties meted out that year for similar infringements However, yes, I agree with you on Merc - there's the track record as you say, with Sauber's sportscar operation - or maybe precedent??? and, of course their F1 operation started the same way.

F1 » Mercedes could have quit F1 over engines


FVA47 - The electronic engine is already here and in use - MAN-B&W have their fully electronic diesels - type ME-C has no camshaft, whereby both fuel injection and exhaust valve are controlled electronically. Type ME-B has cam operation of the exhaust valve only. Now these are marine engines operating at around 70 - 100 RPM depending on cylinder bore. I'm not sure the technology yet exists to control both inlet and exhaust valves, as well as injection at 15,000 RPM in an F1 engine.
