F1 » Honda: We didn’t imagine F1 comeback to be so hard


Back to the subject at hand, In my opinion Honda will be hard pressed to even match the state Renault are at as at Hungary with the development tokens they have left, my opinion is based on what Arai said and what I saw at Hungary. Aria said “In Hungary we have experienced a turning point in reliability and we have been able to maximising the power output available to us”, To me it seems that Honda’s power shortfall is both in their ICE and ERS, and this without no reliability problems which will necessitates not running at full power potential. As I said ERS is a fixed number power wise by the FIA, sio one either have it or not, like others before it, Honda does have it (the full numbers) but not for the full time the rules permit for lap after lap, the rules stats "maximum 4 MJ for 33.33 seconds per lap" but also that " maximum harvesting by "K" (brakes) is 2 MJ per lap" which means that the harvesting by "K" (brakes) can never top the ES (battery), which in turn shows how the syste

F1 » Honda: We didn’t imagine F1 comeback to be so hard


"Why do you get so many down votes?" "My be because sometimes it sounds a bit condescending from 107". The agree/disagree facility as used by CRASH NET only serves to give a vent to those with no balls and no answers to what is being discussed, but then it “hits” are more important to CRASH NET. Sounding condescending in a discussion forum is normally perceived by those who have no answers to what is being discussed, those who have an answer/knowledge and or the balls to debate the subject at hand will not revert to hiding behind their keyboard disagree facilities provided by CRASH NET,

mrfill, I know what Arai said about the turbo/MGU-H, from what he said it means that the problem is the turbo which cannot handle the MGU-H demand, that is as regards ERS power. As I said, ERS maximum power output is fixed by the rules, so one either have it or not. no developments can increase the ERS output any more than what the rules stipulates. Arai also declared that for Hungary they have solved their reliability problems and that they ran at their maximum power, from what we have seen they running at their maximum power in Hungary they were at minimum fifteenth fastest on the grid with the maximum power they can produce, if we are to believe that the car/chassis is one of the best plus having top line drivers.

BlackMike: I think that a big issue in F1 also relates to the regulations restricting development and testing. This really makes it hard to play catch-up and throw resources at it. I understand the cost cutting ideas but feel that F1 as the so called pinnacle of motorsport should be completely unrestricted in that regard.
The development restrictions and testing are the same for everybody, on this here subject (power unit development) testing on track has less impact than that of testing car/chassis is concerned, as development of the power unit is all done on test bed, including proofing and validating. Nowadays manufacturers have testing rigs not only to test the combined powertrain, but also the whole car at their factories, and the best ones are done by a driver from a simulator like driving on track.

Apart from the reliability problems they ran into which prevents one from running the power unit at maximum output let alone developing the power unit to extract more power, Honda by their own admission has got certain expects of their design (power producing parts of the power unit) miscalculated, these parts of the power unit/ areas are (1) the prime power producer “Combustion” (2) efficiency “intake and exhaust systems” and (3) power supping/robbing “friction in the form of their engine gear train”. The ERS system needs not be talked about because the maximum output is stipulated by the rules, and so one either got it or not.

F1 » Button excited by free F1 tyre choice


The funny thing about this latest new trend of negativity for anything to do with formula one IS to be blamed on the FIA . Even Mr F1 the prime number one instigator of all the recent negativity towards formula one (because it suited him) after Silverstone has started to get inspired and leaving those that he pushed to parrot his negativity behind.

F1 » Line goes cold on Renault – Toro Rosso buyout


Taz: Renault are hardly likely to buy STR after the very public and humiliating mud slinging with their parent company. They have to pretend to be considering buying different teams to appear to do due diligence. If they do buy a team it will be Lotus. Ferrari units for STR and RBR perhaps?
If things materialises as expected/as they are being projected, RBR and STR are both distant to be a power unit customer like the other five on the grid, when Haas enters they will even be a step ahead than that position.
