F1 » Honda updates to help towards reliability, driveability


It is important to understand “HOW” the use of development tokens works. All four manufacturers have homologated their PU specification they intended to race with at start of season, that homologated specification left them with a number of development tokens to use, after the first race the manufacturers could develop their PU specification by the number of tokens left at their disposal, ones a manufacturer makes use of development tokens and or the FIA approved reliability fixes, all of his PU’s being raced (supplied) on the grid would have to so modified, a PU supplier cannot have two different PU specifications running on the grid, on the other hand, this means that PU’s that are still in (their cycle of use) cannot be used once a new specification is introduced.

F1 » Honda updates to help towards reliability, driveability


JuJitsoup:
mrfill: Elsewhere it is reported that only software updates will be applied for Barcelona, no token-using hardware changes. Bit like having windows 8.1 instead of windows 8. Not exactly a game changer
Nice analogy, you mean it's a slightly less brown shade of the same stuff?!
As I have tried to explain, Honda and Renault doesn't need use "token-using hardware changes", the reliability fixes they need do are (token-free). when an engine runs into reliability problems, those problems will have to be solved first before developing the performance of the engine. contrary to what was stated above, I am sure that both Renault and Honda have and are carrying a lot of "hardware changes". as much and fast as they can.

F1 » Ferrari doesn’t need Hamilton, hints at Bottas


Richard, be assured that the 059/4 is not only as good (power output wise) as the PU106B, but even ahead and that in both free load and race modes. Contrary to what many believe these two PU’S having been used in the past four races by Mercedes, Williams, Force India, Lotus and FERRARI, Sauber are the once as raced in Australia with no tokens having been made use-of. it will be a waist of time trying to explain things to the Profs.

F1 » Honda updates to help towards reliability, driveability


The power unit development performance upgrades as permitted by the use of tokens during the season (available to individual manufacturers including Honda after the 2015 PU homologation) represents two different chase games, one is solely between FERRARI and Mercedes and the other between Renault and Honda. While the game between FERRARI and Mercedes will take place at race 5, 10 and 15, that between Renault and Honda will take place at race 15, up to that point Renault and Honda will only take the opportunity (make use off) permitted by the FIA reliability fixes, they don't need to use any tokens because fixing their reliability problems is for free. Renault and Honda will most probably end-up adding more 2015 development tokens to the 25 permitted for 2016 than FERRARI and mercedes will.
