F1 » Power Unit component use (after 10 rounds of 19)

mrfill: From what I read elsewhere, the idea seems to be to take lots of penalties at Spa to save taking them elsewhere (particularly Singapore).Well, it might work....
It is clear that you haven’t understood what you read. They are taking advantage of the latest updated rules by using two new engines in “one” race weekend (this race weekend at SPA) for one penalty. I have tried to explain on here that those in a position (reliability wise) to do so, in a race weekend are using two engines to minimise mileage on engines. In a race weekend they will use a retired engine that has done its allocated mileage in FP1 and FP2, and then change over to their race engine for FP3, qualifying and the race, the aim is to minimise mileage on the race engine.

F1 » Power Unit component use (after 10 rounds of 19)

107SS2009: mrfill, That is a lot better (quote) . They can spread the mileage around the PUs but unless they intend to do fewer practice miles overall, it won't make any difference. This move is to reduce penalties to 1 instead of 2 and is being done at a track which they have little hope.
mrfill, OK, we will leave it at that as I don't see any point in talking this subject with you any more.

F1 » Rosberg: Luck kept me out of the wall

Mercedes has already been reprimanded for breaking the regulations by covering Rosberg’s car after it was returned to the pit lane at the British grand prix when his car stopped on track in FP1 because of a hydraulic problem after five laps. Also, both Pirelli and the FIA showed concern for tyre safety after FPI and before Rosberg had the tyre blow-out, the concern seems to be triggered by wheel camber and tyre blanket high temperatures being used, in fact right after FP1 the FIA had send out a directive to all teams to respect tyre safety parameters.

F1 » Button intrigued by Honda PU potential despite penalties

When the start lights goes out at SPA both mchonda drivers will be using ICE number eight, that is double the allowed number of ICE’S allocation for each driver at race number eleven of nineteen, this is actually a smart move from mchonda, as they will be in a position to alternate (share race weekend mileage between two ICE’S) with just one penalty, something that RBR/Renault will not be in a position to do and as a consequence their race engine mileage will be much higher. But I am still trying to figure out the Consequences of Ericthebeliever’s reasoning re their power output gains projected by the use of tokens when he said “after SPA slow speed tracks will suit us better!”.

F1 » Power Unit component use (after 10 rounds of 19)

mrfill: The exact quote is "You cannot start further back than the very back, so why not replace the engine twice?" he added. "We take the punishment on a track that will not hurt us as mu
mrfill, That is a lot better (quote) . They are going to introduce/use two new engines each driver over this race weekend while taking one penalty each driver, in one go during this race weekend, they intend to use one in FP1 and FP2 and the other for FP3, qualifying and race, if the engines were to be introduced/used over different race weekend, they would have had to take two penalties. the aim of this move is as I have explained, which is to reduce mileage. every race outing an engine goes through means less power output and more chance of trouble.

F1 » Bottas blasts Ferrari rumours as ‘unnecessary’ distraction

Cheppy: Journalists always make rumor for news. Don't be too upset about that. Sometime rumor like this one will lift your profile up and land in big team like Ferrari but timing must be right. You have to make friend with those idiot Journalists whether you like them or not but they are part of Formula One family. The journalist will lift you up when you have some podiums finished in races. Also they will push you down when you're crashing a lot and can not scoring point. It's their professional and livelihood.
Go to Maldonado if in need of advice.

F1 » FIA sets out driver aid restriction plan for F1 2016

TD/017-15, start practice and start procedure, The clutch bite point may not be changed from the time the car leaves the garage for the first time after the pit lane is open ahead of the race, until after the start lockout period that commences following beginning of the grand prix. One important thing that nobody is talking about which will make the most difference to race starts is, a car will go to the starting grid on race day with between 90 and 100 kg of extra fuel weight on board compared to the rest of the weekend.
