F1 » F1 fires back into action but McLaren hits trouble


At start of season opener race all 4 manufacturers will be on the grid with their latest performance upgraded PU’S, bar STR who has been permitted to use a year old specification PU, manufacturers will have to supply their customers with identical PU’S as regards to hardware but not as regards to software, fuel and lubricant. These latest performance upgraded PU’S will be upgraded as follows, Mercedes and Honda by any number of or all the 32 tokens allowed this season, FERRARI and Renault by any number of or all the 32 tokens allowed this season, plus the 2015 tokens that they proved to the FIA that they had tested on their respective testbeds but that they did not made use of on race track/did not race, example, Renault offered RBR/STR an 11 token upgraded PU at the US GP, but apart from RBR/STR having refused to use, when RBR used the upgraded PU in Brazil they refused to accommodate part of the upgrade offered, namely the new turbo and exhaust system, so those 2 items were not raced

F1 » Has Honda cured its power deficit?


WYNK:
107SS2009: Yes, these present power units are close to a combined 1000hp now,
Somehow it just doesn't seem the same as 1000hp from a production-block 4-cylinder stressed so high it was in imminent danger of spitting a piston into the next county. Just IMO
Yes, logic leads one to understand that it is not the same, The present day 1.6l turbo hybrid PU is the most powerful and the most efficient ever produced, and also with the best reliability ever.

F1 » Has Honda cured its power deficit?


Mullet:
107SS2009: When the turbo is used as an electrical supercharger (max power free load) the exhaust gasses are bypassing the turbocharger turbine, the exhaust gasses are exiting through the waste gates (free load-no back pressure), the MGU-H will is permitted to spinning the compressor/turbo to maximum permitted RPM (125K RPM) the RPM/pressure boost depends on the special fuel being used, the pressure boost is not regulated/mandated by the regulations/rules, the max fuel flow is.
Thank you for the extensive explanation. I wish this tech goes to road cars fast.
Not exactly the same TECH used in F1, but electrical driven supercharging has been used before, Volvo does.

F1 » Has Honda cured its power deficit?


As I understand it from hints dropped here and there, part of their (Honda)problem was the engine/chassis integration, this was the same thing that happened right at start of 2014 winter testing between Renault and RBR, anybody remember the burned-up bodywork and the holes being cut in the bodywork back than, and Newey and Spiceman rushing back to base drawing board while Vettel being send home during that testing?

F1 » McLaren-Honda rubbishes power hike stories


richard:
Taz: Well 160+bhp gained seemed a bit optimistic.
well, it is misquoted, or misunderstood. the 160 was the amount provided by the ers, which most of the time didnt work. so if they have managed to get it to work, then theoretically they have "found " 160 bhp. but it is wrong to take this into the overall gain as it was operational periodically.
+1 Richard.
