Still doesn't explain massive speed increase on 4 Ferrari powered cars.


Bro the speed can't be coming from the engine. The engines are frozen. :squint:

true, but could be a batch failure... dont they like x ray every part though?

yeah for initial quality control...but if it failed in the second race just like massa, it could be a failure that happens over time..when exposed to heat, etc

In the current trackside discussions about possible new rules for the future, some teams are pushing for a radical change on the engine front.

According to the largest Austrian daily, Kronen Zeitung, Renault and also BMW are fully behind the push for small turbo-charged engines for the 2012 season and beyond.

The newspaper said those teams have proposed a 1.5 litre capacity for the turbos, with 1.5 bar boost.

Ferrari's current reliability problems aside, it is no surprise the Italian marque's rivals are pushing for the end to the current 2.4 litre normally-aspirated V8 era.

One key speed trap at the Valencia circuit last weekend captured Sebastien Bourdais (313kmh), Kimi Raikkonen (313), Sebastian Vettel (313), Felipe Massa (312) and Adrian Sutil (311) monopolising the top five positions in terms of sheer top-end grunt.

All of the aforementioned drivers use Ferrari engines.


Sutil?! Come oooonnnnn.......

Top 5 cars through the speed trap are suddenly using the same engine during an engine freeze period?

im not denying that the ferrari engine seems to have gotten a HP bump, just pointing out that a backmarker CAN have the fastest straight line car.

Honda wasn't really a hopeless backmarker until they were separate from BAR.

Did rather well in 04 and 06, in particular. :x:

I guess they were.... I always consider the 07 season as the start of Honda's 'true' factory team as that's when they lost the BAT sponsorship and the failboat really set sail. :rofl:

if Sato wasn't dive bombing other drivers, it looked like he had an afterburner hooked up to the back of the car there were so many flames shooting out of it...
