F1 » Horner: Prospect of 1000bhp in F1 is eye-watering

Rafal W: Engine is a machine to convert energy in fuel and air into movement. It's simple, the more fuel and air you are able to pump in the more energy you get out. You can make an engine bigger (displacement), you can cram it faster (higher RPMs) or pump a mixture at a higher pressure (or a combination of all 3). So to make more power you need more fuel flow, this is a restriction. Prof is right here, bigger displacement does not mean higher fuel usage.
Very interesting, But as my logic says the bigger the displacement the the higher the fuel usage (consumption) will you please elaborate/explain.

F1 » Force India to skip Jerez F1 test

The latest rumours doing the rounds read, that Mallya has been under increasing financial pressure over the winter break as the last power house of his empire (united breweries) is being chased to recover some of the estimated $2bn of debt owed by the defunct kingfisher airlines. And that Force India is close to collapse, suppliers haven’t been payed and this is the reason that the car is not ready for Jerez and that unless funds are injected into the team in the near future, Force India will be unlikely to make the grid in Australia and Malaysia.

F1 » Renault seeking ‘at least five wins’ in F1 2015

Richard, Agree rumours means nothing other than it gives something to others to talk about, and while we wait for the action to start here is some more. Auto motors und sports claiming inside information is speculating that Honda isn’t happy at all with the compromise because Mercedes changed plans after the FIA ruling for Honda from declaring that they will start the season with their 2014 PU to going to use most of their allocated tokens from race one, which will leave Honda about eight tokens from the possible sixteen that were possible. They are predicting that Mercedes will use 26 tokens, Renault 25 and Ferrari 20. Which will leave 6+7+12=8 tokens = 12% of the possible 48% of the 66 PU parts to develop.

F1 » Renault seeking ‘at least five wins’ in F1 2015

107SS2009: Honda will have to homologate their PU like the others did, up to that homologation time Honda can make any changes they like. Every car and PU will have to be homologated to be allowed to race.
How do you homologate a car and then develop it throughout the year. It shows what the loophole truly is... a gift
There are parts on the car that have to be homologated as well as parts that can be developed (within the rules). For 2015 the PU’S that where homologated in 2014 are still homologated in 2015, but can now be developed within the permitted 32 tokens allocated for 2015, this development can now be done during the season, in addition the tokens not used for the first race by Mercedes, Renault and FERRARI will benefit Honda, but until the first race which determines how many tokens the three didn’t make use of Honda cannot have any tokens allocated to them.
