F1 » Ecclestone calls for F1 power unit to be dropped


Jahein, I fully agree with what Richard said both “mental and fanboyism”, his type of fanboyism is written over his forehead for all to see. It is only now that the epic driver he supports won the championship competing only against his team mate that he has seen some great racing, he falsely compeers the RBR and other cars dominance with this year’s Mercedes dominance and in the process influences some others on here who might not be up to date on F1 matters. As far as I can remember and this goes back a very long time, there was never a rule in F1 racing like there is now that prevented others from catching-up with a dominant car/team, the rules as are re the PU controlled development freeze are the only thing that are preventing others from competing with Mercedes, or better put preventing them from catching-up with Mercedes.

F1 » Red Bull has ‘real desire’ to catch Mercedes


Goldie, nice and interesting to read about your first hand acquaintance with the area, does “Healthwick LTD” the small model shop (mostly working scale model steam trains and Traction/roller engines” in Holland road rings some more bells?. As you read above Taipan through to his pen name dived in to spy on the extinct dinosaurs on the opposite side of the road, could be he even experienced the earth quake simulation they offer in there!. Anyhow, would have been nice/interesting to have been given more information about the “Bentley Blower/supercharger”.

F1 » Red Bull has ‘real desire’ to catch Mercedes


Richard, there were many shapes and types of “rotary” aero engines, also stationary and car engines, but the first ever was build (5 cylinders) inside a bicycle wheel. The most famous British ones were the Bentley BR1 and BR2, Examples which can be seen both at the Kensington science museum and in Edinburgh military museum, places which I never tire of visiting when I am around. In 1981 I visited the model engineers exhibition at Wembley conference centre specifically to see a one fourth scale working model BR2 made by the late L K Blackmore of Austria, it was demonstrated and run by the late Profs D H Chaddock.

F1 » Red Bull has ‘real desire’ to catch Mercedes


Both a supercharger and a turbocharger compresses air into the IC engine which means they are both acting like a compressor the difference that differentiate them is the way they are driven. In the F1 installation the exhaust gasses are also used to drive the MGU-H (the electric motor/generator which also drives the compressor when in motor mode) in a generator mode to supply either the ES (charge the batteries) or the MGU-K which in turn will assist the ICE crankshaft with extra power (running in motor mode). There is another interesting hybrid installation used on the road which uses what is called (one and a half turbo installation that is a normal turbocharger for ICE use with its exhaust outlet driving an additional exhaust turbine which in turn drives an MGU-H.

F1 » Red Bull has ‘real desire’ to catch Mercedes


As I said in that discussion of a few days ago (which I had started) what is used in F1 is a turbosupercharger, this as defined by the two means of which it is driven. A combination of both a supercharger (mechanically driven) and a turbocharger (exhaust gasses driven). A turbocharger has only one means by which it is driven (exhaust gasses). A supercharger has several means by which it can be driven including electrical (by electrical motor) which places it in the mechanically driven category.
