F1 » Honda can develop F1 engine in 2015


Is there a point in doubling turbo pressure when they are boost limited due to fuel?
You can run more agressive valve timing, the higher pressure fuel distributes differently and because of different expansion cools the cilinder a bit more etc etc. You do not inject more fuel, just at a higher pressure. Diesels inject at 2000 bar for example. The tech side of the story is too long to write here. The effect will actually be lower fuel usage or more power using the same amount of fuel. So you can underfuel without loosing speed compared to 2014 or simply turn the wick up without using more fuel than last year.

F1 » Honda hit by FIA engine loophole


From what I have read the existing teams can start the season with their base 2015 engine and update it until they have used all the tokens. After that they need to homologate it. Can be at the last few races and then that is the basis for the token system in 2016. FIA is explaining the loophole in the broadest way they can. This will very likely be protested against by Honda to try to lock the other teams into the engine they bring to Melbourne.
