F1 » Italian Grand Prix – Free practice results (2)

Sasha Alexandrovich: Looks like Renault is def. 2 seconds slower than Mercedes. Last year it was .5s in FP2.
Mercedes is running there new updated engine. The customers haven't received there's yet.
If Mercedes are using /has introduced "tokens developed" power units on their two WO6'S only, that means Mercedes are using two different specifications power units on the grid.
Surely, if Mercedes use their tokens for development of their power unit, then in fairness, if they have to hand these development to the customer team, the customer team should have to forfeit the appropriate number of tokens. It's Good to Talk.

107SS2009: OnTheOtherHand, Just a simple reminder if you don't mind, A power unite manufacturer may only use and supply to customer teams one power unite specification. Power unites upgraded/modified for cost or reliability reasons are not considered by the FIA as being of new specification to that homologated before such modification were permitted, so a manufacturer can ran both upgraded/modified and non upgraded/modified power unites. On the other hand when a manufacturer upgrades his power unite by using development tokens, the power unite so upgraded is considered by the FIA as being of a new specification, and the rules says that a manufacturer can only use and supply one specification. Power unite customer teams have no such things as development tokens, or any say in their use.
Thanks for clearing that up. So you are saying, if Mercedes have used tokens for the upgrade/modifications, they are to distribute this unit to the customer also. What if the

F1 » Mercedes summoned to stewards, Hamilton win provisional

JunglistF1: I was just about to post the same thing. If they knew about it pre-race why allow them to race in the first place. If it's a straight DSQ post race shouldn't it be a straight DSQ before the race even starts?
0.3 on one tire and you want a DQ
They only tested one tyre. Herbert alluded to the fact that a lower pressure on the LHS of the car was the advantage, so this is where they checked. However, they did not publish the tyre blanket temps, only "they were within range". If the temps were low, I'm guessing the pressure would be low also. It's Good to Talk.

F1 » Mercedes rubbish tyre pressure conspiracy theories

richard: what bunkum! well then, why did you tell lulu to keep his speed up so as to keep tyre pressures at the min. the tyres MUST have been under pressured when they were running cooler!
Richard Perfectly reasonable explanation, answers the question I posed on an earlier thread relating to tyre blankets and tyre pressures. Glad it is resolved, I'm sure the checks will tighten up next time out. Maybe Pirelli should come up with minimum pressures over a range of temperatures, including cold. Maybe solid tyres and more suspension travel could be an option :). It's Good to Talk.
