F1 » What we learned at the Chinese Grand Prix


George, The latest speculation doing the rounds I mentioned (hydrogen generation through the engine lubricating oil to boost fuel octane) is believed to have been used from the start of the new engine formula. Much as I like too, it is not proper for me to give site/s information on here about this subject, just try to trace who researched, developed and was awarded (blue) awards for such efficiency achievements.

F1 » Raikkonen says Ferrari can overhaul Mercedes


benignlyindifferent: Actually, this year's car is designed around Kimi's feedback as the team grew tired of the less than stellar data and feedback from Alonso. The car is more compliant and tuneable, and with the new power plant is very much on the rise. Hope Kimi is correct. I think China with the longest straight in F1 might be the Mercedes best track and now we will see a more competitive challenge from Ferrari at many of the remaining venues.
China's long straights belonged to FERRARI while the slow sections belonged to Mercedes.

F1 » What we learned at the Chinese Grand Prix


Power produced by an engine is a product of the amount of air and the right proportion (ratio) of fuel that can be forced into the engine, in the case of F1 the engine is fuel restricted at 10500rpm, above which no more power can be produced with the FIA formulated fuel, running the engines at 13000rpm can only mean, additional fuel above that permitted is being used or higher octane fuel than that permitted is being used. Fuel pressure has nothing to do with the subject, as fuel (amount) injected into the engine is a function of the time the injectors are opened.

F1 » What we learned at the Chinese Grand Prix


George, According to the FIA China race weekend reports all cars fuel system was in accordance with the regulations. The FIA new fuel directive (pressure checks at various points in the system) created more confusion then it solved problems, the FIA was already monitoring fuel pressure at two points in the system, pressure flow to the engine by the FFS itself (max 20bar) and the 500bar max injection pressure by pressure sensor. As I have already explained the speculated about accumulation of fuel that has legally passed through the FFS some of which haven’t been used and then used in addition to the legal flow when needed to boost power could not be in contravention of the fuel rules. These suspicions started doing the rounds because some were using their engines up to 13k rpm when it is not possible for an engine to produce any more power above 10500rpm. But bells does not ring for nothing, something much more sophisticated might be going on re the fuel/power output.

F1 » Rosberg explains Hamilton criticism


After the Malaysian GP the number one Lulu fan club pundit Culthard has kicked off what is recognised as “their speciality” in character assassination “love Lulu hate Nico”, if anybody is in doubt as to what it is like to be a competitor of a British driver at the hands of this broadcaster pundit’s, go ask Alonso or Vettel. Nico’s frustration at losing out on pole to Lulu by what Brundle termed as a “one rotation of a wheel” showed in and after the race, this was because according to those in the know, this year the Mercedes talking heads that constantly and openly contradicts each other, had decided that this year their drivers will not be Allowed to race each other when the gap to the opposition is less than X, and that X will be decided by the pit wall.

It will be in total breach of the regulations as such a system will ammount to boosting the fuel octane after the fuel was approved by the FIA, this in contrast to what I said last time about the subject, namely, that fuel flow that was registered as having flowed through the FFS no matter how it is used, it cannot be said to be in breach of the regulations.

Massa used the brakes to deactivate the DRS and not the push button, when following the FOM graphics (left side of TV screen and on board camera (Lulu in China), one can see the driver deactivating the DRS at between 150-100 meters before he hits the brakes (watch Lulu right hand thumb finger on the steering wheel top right button), when he presses the button the graphics shows DRS deactivated, and he does so before he hits the brakes, so as the rear axle/wheels are loaded before the brakes bite. Re the FIA new fuel flow directive supposedly effective from China, and that nothing else was heard about, although totally out of what the FIA and most of those speculating as to what was possibly being done, new speculations started doing the rounds (started in a very highly technical F1 Italian web site) that a system of what is called (hydrogen generation) through the engine lubricating oil could be in use to boost the octane of the fuel, if such a system is in use it will be in total br
