MotoGP » ‘The GP15 is a real Ducati’

Shuggiemac, oh I see, so in your opinion having mechanical Desmo valve operation makes the GP15 "a real Ducati" well thanks for that, but may I suggest you trot off and find a Ducati to look at. Abefan, nice try, but remind me, what are the traditional design virtues of real Ducatis again? I'm sure you could also remind me exactly how long the Japanese have been designing developing and racing V4 engined beam framed GP motorcycles. Ignorance is not an excuse in my book, so sorry for my ignorance.

MotoGP » Rossi: New Ducati ‘fast’, tyre rule ‘unfair’

"The main grievance that the Honda and Yamaha riders have is that because the hardest tyre option is rarely beneficial, they end up racing with the same 'medium' option as Ducati - but without a soft compound for qualifying or 'cold' races." A certain poster or two will be along shortly to tell you all (again) how Ducati were/are at a massive disadvantage because they can't pick the hard tyre no one uses.

F1 » McLaren-Honda issues plenty but 'small'

Fullofit: Honda's last foray into F1 was pretty much a disaster.
not as an engine supplier, it wasnt! their failure was in trying to be a constructor. their engine was arguably the strongest and most powerful on the grid. and if you research their inital foray into f1, it was something similar. their engine was a jewel of enineering, but until it was put into a proper lola chassis, it had no success.
Absolutely, and ignorance is never an excuse for anything!

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.

F1 » Ferrari: Engine development ‘first victory’

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)
