F1 » Hamilton doesn’t feel comfortable ahead of Abu Dhabi

Re the 5 PU components used by car 44 and 6 as at Brazil. Both used 5th ICE, 5th TC, 5th MGU-K, 5th MGU-H, but both used 4TH CE and 4th ES, which means they both can make use of a new 5th CE and 5th ES without incurring a 10 place grid penalty. As I said elsewhere both cars 44 and 6 had their gearbox seal broken in Brazil and all gear ratio pairs and dog rings where replaced. Also all PU106A in use in Brazil had their seal broken and the MGU-K drive shaft replaced for a new one, this being the second time, this drive shaft was the subject of a request to the FIA after Lulu engine failure in FP2 at Silverstone and which was approved by all teams to redesign under the sporting regulations appendix 4 (upgrade of PU parts for reliability reasons), of which the declared fault was a design flow, the new redesigned shaft was installed in all PU106A'S in Germany.

F1 » F1: Smedley praises Williams’ resolve

The pit lane speed limiter is adjustable by the team according to the pit lane speed limit imposed by the stewards for the particular track (speed limit might varies from track to track). it can only be activated and deactivated by the driver. The limiter can only be used in the pit lane. The limiter can only be used in the first three gears, it limits the engine rpm according to which gear is in use and depending on the gear ratio in use to limit the speed of the car with the throttle pressed to the floor. The rule that it can be used only in the first three gears and only in the pit lane is to prevent teams using it to mimic traction control on track. And contrary to many believe there will not be a speed limiter for the driver to use on the new VSC (yellow flag/s system) the peed of the car will still have to be the responsibility and managed by the driver.
