F1 » Power Unit component use (after 7 rounds of 19)


“Power unit component usage” This is an FIA race weekend report, it shows that in Canada both SF15T used ICE number three but retained number two of the other five components that makes-up the power unit, on the other hand both C34 used ICE number two while also trained number two of the five components, all of the six components used so far are part of a combination (mix) of the four combinations as permitted by the rules. Appendix 4 line 2 of the rules reads, “a manufacturer may homologate no more than one specification of a power unit”. If FERRARI used tokens in Canada on (ICE number three) they had to re-homologate the power unit, not having upgraded Sauber’s power unit in Canada to the same specification would have resulted in violation of the rules.

107SS2009: Frozen items in 2016 that will be added ...
Sunny,What would happen if a new supplier, let's say Cosworth, wanted to enter in 2016? Would they have to comply with all this or is it a 'we'll cross that bridge when we come to it' group of rules?Also, If Renault wanted to start again, could there be an all new, let's say 'Nissan' engine, in addition to the current carthorse, or are they locked in with the only option being leaving F1?
My opinion, Cosworth entry will be as per Honda but with 2016 rules, Honda entered under the 2015 rules, an engine produced by Nissan will be regarded as a new engine and that's what the name will be. a new engine, but Renault cannot manufacture an engine and brand it as Nissan, manufacturer entrant will have to comply with the rules at the time entered.

That's broadly what I thought. Its quite a disincentive for any new PU maker to enter now with the token reduction year-on-year when you start part way through the 'project'. And that's not good for the sport.
Mrfill, The way I see it, entering at any point (year) there is as much disadvantages as there is advantages. The whole thing depends on know-how/capability.

CrazyHorse23:
107SS2009: Rumours have been circulating that at the Canadian GP weekend a number of meetings took place where options for RB and TR to become FERRARI engine customers in 2017 at a cost of 18 million per season each were discussed in detail. If this dial materialises, will RB or TR ever be able to win a championship being a customer team?. Mclaren is suffering some of the biggest pain ever seen in F1 exactly to avoid just that, being a customer by ditching the Mercedes PU supply.
Both RBR and STR know how to build a better chassis and optimise aero better than FERRARI so who knows...maybe!
Dieter Mateschitz- "With customer engine you will never win a championship again" Ron Dennis was correct, I was correct. You just blabbing.

F1 » Raikkonen: If I am not with Ferrari, I am not with any team


SoSlo: Dude, he straight up called a journalist out in the pressroom in front of everybody including that journo's peers and straight up said he was writing BS... to his face. Not many people would do that. Kimi is a badass.
Kudos to Kimi for telling it like it is straight to the face of that journalist. Although I never had the same chance to do so that is exactly what I have been saying all along on here (about the total crap they write/come-up with/feed their readers) , but the problem remains that the opinion of those being feed such crap depends on what they would like to hear.

rob01: Kimi is spot on. Not one of the articles written about ANY drivers contracts are factual. Anyone stating what salary a driver is getting is spouting bull crap.
Agree on most you said rob about actual contracts (details) but not on the salary thing, although most of what is banded about as you said is bull crap. but some of the more serious money sites are exact and cannot be otherwise in their quoting of "guarantied drivers salary"
