Fuel isn't limited per lap; it's just allocated on a per lap basis. In other words, a car with X technology will be given Y amount of fuel per lap, and a car with Z technology will be given T amount of fuel per lap. Each technology's unique allocation figure is then multiplied by the total number of laps for any given race, and the product of that equation is the total fuel limit for the race for that technology. Manufacturers can exploit that limit however they see fit. They could use it all on the first lap if they so desired.
Didn't realise it worked like that. Thanks!
This shouldn’t detract from either performance or from the quality of the show for spectators, since the drivers will no long have to worry about fuel consumption. The amount of energy they use will be monitored by a flow-meter.

bhallg2k wrote:I agree with you on the fine print. I don't think they want to limit power, though. The expressed goal is to find as much power and/or efficiency as possible from a given quantity of fuel. That's why the engine regulations are completely and delightfully open.
Does that mean we won't see bodywork evolution throughout the season ?
What's the point of "standardize" everything ?
