What is the mechanism for this?
Is the oil being injected into the air intake, how does it get into the combustion chamber to effectively burn literes of it per race?
Hard to beleive the teams loosen up tolerances with the pistons to let the oil get in the chamber.
I feel it may be coming through a port in the turbo compressor housing, fed from the turbo's bearings.
What other options do the engine maker have to introduce oil into the combustion?
fuel pump siphon connected to the oil tank?
Oil, air separator in the tank plumbed back into the intake?
Which is the problem that this aims to solve?NL_Fer wrote: ↑Wed Sep 06, 2017 5:10 pmI have a suggestion for 2018 where only 3 units are allowed. FIA needs to determine the performance of the PU and the fastest will get an engine freeze. The second round, the then fastest will get a freeze or if the already frozen PU is still fastest the second fastest will be frozen.
Than for the 3rd PU a showdown between the slowest 2 manufacturers.
So the fastest in the first round will have 3 identical PU's the whole season. The one frozen in the second round will have the second and third PU identical. The slowest two will have 3 different specs.
And also they need to compare the 100-150 GPS acceleration to determine the PU power.
Define "team", as surely the engine is part of the team performance
