F1 » Button predicts ‘mixed up field’ for F1 opener


Further to, re Honda’s Yasuhisa Arai, “I don’t know how many tokens we have, it depends on the other teams, and some say they spend everything (tokens), so we have no tokens, it depends on the other teams. We have a planned development not depending on tokens, we have a plan to improve every day, day by day, week by week”. My italics here/my opinion, There is for sure plenty of scope (door left open by the FIA) for in-season engine development which can be used during the year as “modified engines” without requiring the use of tokens.

F1 » Max Yamabiko: Grounding the Alonso crash conspiracy theories


DutchPorridgewog: "Additionally faced with a high speed impact with a solid object drivers sometimes do strange things, Jules Bianchi for example had 100 per cent brake and throttle demand at the same time as he headed towards the recovery vehicle at Suzuka, nobody knows why. " I thought, at the time, the team said something about 100% brake and throttle application totally overrides all systems to create an immediate stop of the car.
Dutch, Correct to a point, the BBW system on the rear wheels will more or less prevent full pedal pressure, the drivers use that system (brake and throttle at the same time) to override the BBW, the trouble is that once the wheels locks-up the car tends to go faster because the tyres to ground friction is lost.

F1 » Alonso 'recovering', will remain in hospital


Re the possibility of Alonso having been electrocuted by the ERS. From the little I know about electrics and the first hand experience of having witnessed a fatality by electrocution, a rubber tired 60ton crane was handling some heavy equipment for me when it got its jib tangled in some high tension overhead lines, one of the cranes roustabouts ran to the crane to tell the crane driver of what happened and he rested both his hands on the side of the crane, he was instantly electrocuted to dead, the crane driver was screaming to all of us who were running to help pull him off to not touch him, all of us and that crane driver are still breathing to this day.

F1 » Button predicts ‘mixed up field’ for F1 opener


mytyresaregoingoff: #107.. The circulating of a proposed modification appears to be a positive double edged sword as if you apply for a change the competition knows the details and your thinking even if it is not allowed to happen.
Some of the requests (modifications) are granted directly by the FIA which in my personal opinion adds to the mystery, others looks like being some sort of blackmail tool in the hands of the FIA. These type of modifications "exemption" (under safety and cost reduction) were made use of by all three PU manufacturers between races and all season long, Renault broke all records by a mile, Mercedes didn't miss one race up to the last race of the season without replacing MGU-K shaft which they got permission to modify at start of season.

Honda are on schedule to homologate their PU as requested, but what we see in Melbourne by (all four, the other three have to register their used tokens) will not be the final story. There is a lot of mystery around what PU manufacturers can and cannot change in their engines outside the agreed development tokens and as part of the in-season development “exemption” under the guise of “safety” and “cost reduction”. An engine manufacturer wishing to make a modification change during 2014 had to apply to the FIA, were the proposed change “obviously within the allowed criteria” then the FIA will grant-it directly, however, if the proposed modification appeared to be in the “grey area”, then the FIA would circulate the application amongst the other manufacturers for a “peer review”, during 2014 engine modifications were made between most if not all of the races. To be continued.
