F1 » Honda confirms token use, four remain


JACKBEE: Sunny....so who determines if a modification is for reliability, and would it not be possible for a manufacturer to incorporate an improved performance element under the cloak of reliability or cost?
The FIA determines such things, the request is circulated to all other teams. I have no doubt that no matter how small there is always going to be the possibility of acquiring a power improvement, more so with these power unites, for instance both Renault and Honda changed their pistons under the reliability guise, but this change I can tell you that it was Primarily as a result of their new developed fuel formulation, now new fuel formulation is developed solely for power gains.

F1 » Honda confirms token use, four remain


“Honda confirms token use” So now at least one part of this “token use” misinformation farce by the mostly British F1 press is correct. “FIA confirms token use (NOTE, NOT USED) by Honda and FERRARI, While Honda are now confirming they had used tokens. FERRARI could not “HAVE MADE USE” of tokens in Canada, in fact at Monaco FERRARI confirmed “NOTHING IMPORTANT FOR CANADA”, because the rules would not have allowed Sauber to run a different specification engine which they didn’t. I am now starting to believe that some of the F1 sites misinformation is not intentional, but simply the sites concerned does not understand F1 matters, the matters they are reporting on.

F1 » Vettel still eyeing podium despite qualifying flop


MrJones85:
107SS2009:
MrJones85: That's going to be tough, especially with so many fast cars ahead of him.
Bar the two Mercedes cars in front of him the others in front are not faster.
So, what happened in qualifying? The Ferrari doesn't seem to have the pace around Spa.
Mrjones, did you miss qualifying? Vettel had the pace for third and one of the best top speed.

Also, trace and read my posts about the sheer number of reliability/cost requests made to the FIA so far this season, and also were I always stressed that development tokens will be used as late in the season as possible, this because what they could get for free they try all they can to get, and secondly, the later in the season the tokens are used the more prepared the power unite will be for the next season.

Once again I will repeat. Engines upgraded (upgrades approved by the FIA) for reliability or cost reasons are regarded by the FIA as being of the same specification as that which is being used (not yet upgraded), as such the manufacturer concerned is not obliged to upgrade all of his engines that are being used on the grid, including those supplied to others. The use of development tokens, When the FIA is notified by a manufacturer of the intentions of development tokens use, the FIA notifies (by a press release) all teams on the grid and the accredited press. When the manufacturer concerned uses the development tokens upgraded engine on the racing grid, all his engines supplied and racing on the grid must be such upgraded, as this type of upgrade is regarded by the FIA as being a new specification, and the rules says that a manufacturer can use and supply only one specification engine.
