F1 » Ferrari: Engine development ‘first victory’


107SS2009: Taipan seems to have got the gist of it all straight away, and as he said there is no rules limiting turbo boost or limiting maxpower RPM to 10500, the maximum they use, the fuel flow rate restriction takes care of both or better say dictates both.
To be honest Sunny other than reading your posts (thanks for the info) I haven't spent any time learning about these PU's, I just don't have the same interest in them as I did with previous engines. Firstly I'm not very interested in electronics so the energy recovery doesn't do anything for me, although I except that it's all very clever. In addition the IC engine is a shadow of what an F1 engine used to be, all thanks to the fuel flow limit. A small V6 spinning at 10 or 11k rpm is just doesn't float my boat in they was that a 3L V10 screaming at 20k rpm did. It's all a bit sad really.

F1 » FIA considering Honda engine concessions


ProfessorX:
Conger: The rules have become the story instead of the Technology. They have this fundamentally wrong,.
It's called progress, comrade! Eric Blair wrote a nice book about this kind of thing, called Animal Farm.
Yeah the technology in Animal Farm was very similar to the technology in F1. I take it you're learning about George Orwell at school this week Comrade Moonbat? :rolleyes:

F1 » Ferrari behind on 2015 F1 car development


The way Marchionne speaks doesn't fill me with hope.... "We have a new guy, a team principal, who has been involved in racing a long part of his professional life Maurizio Arrivabene and he's busy now. We've got a technical guy, James Allison, who's taking over the technical side of the business. So we've got the team.” A team principal guy, a technical guy and a couple of driving guys. Hmmm
