F1 » Red Bull to appeal Ricciardo exclusion


@Yes Yes Yes Leave Me Alone The problem was not about how much fuel was burnt in the race, that's another rule. The problem here is the rate at which the fuel was burned, that's the limit. You can burn 100kg in one hour by burning it constantly or burn 50kg in 45 minutes and the rest in 15 minutes. Fuel flow rate limits the top power an engine can produce. They can still be in the 100kg fuel limit but exceeded the fuel flow limit never the less.

turbo compounding is the idea of combining the turbo and and electrical generator to increase efficiency of an ICE, which is used from some time ago in heavy machinery albeit with another turbo just spinning the generator (google is your friend). Or you just like being ignorant? And no this is my only alias, don't know the proffesor. @Mark Actually mass flow rate is the best way to limit power, if it was based on volume, it will be very inconsistent, because volume changes with density, which in term changes with temperature. Williams used to super cool their tanks long time ago, MotoGP bikes still do it I think. Mass stays the same regardless. Actually the 100kg per race and 100kg/h is pretty smart and when they get their measuring right will give an equal playing field for all PUs.

from stewards decision "b. The Technical Directive goes on to state: “If at any time WE consider that the sensor has an issue which has not been detected by the system WE will communicate this to the team concerned and switch to a backup system” (emphasis added.) c. The backup system is the calculated fuel flow model with a correction factor decided by the FIA." they never did actually tell RedBull to use the back up system
