F1 » Ferrari: Engine development ‘first victory’

Taipan: HRC, From my understanding everything you say is right but remember there's not just the fuel flow limit to consider but also the 100kg total fuel limit. The cars are already fuel limited in a race so if they used more fuel lower in the rev range because of the cooler air charge they would have less fuel to use in other areas.
Yes Tai I know, but if their electric power is also better it will allow the ICE to be better exploited, period. As 107 has said it's about all the components of the entire PU working together, not just one part. We also do not know how much fuel the Merc ICE uses at any given rev, so it could be giving more power at lower revs, whilst using less fuel than a competitors engine over a full lap !

F1 » Ferrari: Engine development ‘first victory’

107 re read my post, or maybe I'm not explaining very well? I'm not saying cooler air increases the max power available at 'peak' fuel flow, but it is a fact a cooler intake charge will have the ability to contain more fuel, you stated that yourself! This is a very important factor If that max flow is not required, which is why I mentioned @ lower revs, because the ICE will not require the maximum fuel flow, but will still be capable of producing more Power and Torque making the ICE a far more flexible power unit directly due to the very fact it is being fed a cooler intake charge. If I'm wrong fair enough, explain to me how and why, but I'm pretty sure what I'm stating is correct. So in effect a cooler intake charge will give more power and torque throughout the rev range upto the capped flow rate. I'm also well aware of the stoichiometric mixture required by any gasoline engine.

107 correct me if I'm wrong, but you seem to be missing an important point. As I understand it, as these ICE are forced air induction (Turbos) a cooler intake charge would be very beneficial lower down the usable rev range well before the fuel flow limit would come into play to cap max HP? Unless of course they are hitting the fuel flow limit across the entire rev range of the ICE (which I doubt)

MotoGP » VIDEO: MotoGP's next big young thing?

The only reason Spain produces so much talent is because it has been allowed to and continue to, milk the rest of the EU for billions in funding for it's (cough cough) youth employment initiatives (sports programmes) that bring the likes of MM and this youngster through their EU funded (quote: high quality) domestic series. Way better than adding youth to the unemployment que though eh? Can you see it catching on in good old Blighty? naa thought not, but lets just keep shovelling the ££££ their way anyway. We wont even go into all the debt their football teams owe in taxes, which would bankrupt most of them overnight if they had to pay what they should have done. FARCE!

F1 » Alonso the target if Hamilton leaves Mercedes F1

Just to add a couple of points of note. GDI is nothing more than an acronym for gasolene direct injection, Mercedes version of direct injection, and not really any different than any other form of common rail direct injection, which all F1 engines have to utilise from 2014 onwards. Turbosupercharger, an old word that's not used any longer, could we just stick with turbocharger and supercharger which gives a clear distinction between the two.

F1 » F1’s Virtual Safety Car approved for 2015

"It is obvious that slowing down means slower RPM'S." No you're wrong there, actually you could be in a lower gear using MORE RPM but actually moving at a lesser speed. Whatever they come up with it will in effect be an reduction in SPEED through a waved yellow area, whether it be an speed limit displayed on the drivers wheel, or controlled by means of a time delta, it will ultimately be a reduction in speed, with penalties for breaching it. Yellow flags have long been abused/paid lip service by drivers/riders in motor racing.

F1 » Verstappen: Mercedes F1 focus wrong for juniors

ProffX totally agree with you and pretty much what I intimated. The fact is there was no F1 seat at Merc, if MV had signed up for Mercs young driver programme it would most likely have been a test/reserve driver position but going head to head with Pascal Wehrlein already established as their future young star and current reserve driver. It's nothing to do with programmes or focus, and everything to do with getting his bottom into a seat and onto the grid as quickly as he can, which he has done. Some people just can't see the wood for the trees
