Nothing mentioned about upping the revs allowed - just various factors that are likely to decrease grip and ask the engines/Power units to last longer (increase reliability).mikeerfol wrote:There are more here http://www.fia.com/news/world-motor-spo ... 014-munichSoCalWJS wrote:Is there a complete list of the changes somewhere? I didn't see anything about Engine Rev limit changed.
Sounds like they are (once again) slowing F1 down.
Well no, we couldn't. FOM want a different winner every season, ideally every race.TzeiTzei wrote:Could we actually have the same rules for... i dont know, five or ten years?
You cant.matt21 wrote:Should we try to do some regulations, we think would be fun for engineers and fans as well but contain cost to a level that an average team can afford, let´s say 100 millions?

From 2015 to 2016, 23% of the PU will be frozen (everything listed above and a shitload of other stuff), and half of the remaining 77% can be modified: or 38% of the total PU.
My question is this: will Honda be obliged to follow the update schedule exactly as written, which ties updates to calendar years, or will their delayed entry be taken into account? In other words, will they be forced to bypass the initial 48% update entirely, because the 2016 rules only allow for a 38% update, or will they be allowed to make a 48% update on account of it being their first update?
It's a convoluted question; I hope it makes sense.
I'm Guessing they will be still in 1st iteration of development so Honda will have 48% update chance instead of Mercedes , Renault and Ferraribhall II wrote:Let's try this one more time.

I'll guess that they will have to oblige with the update schedule - or the other manufacturers will protest and get additional updates...that's how it usually works, right?Harsha wrote:I'm Guessing they will be still in 1st iteration of development so Honda will have 48% update chance instead of Mercedes , Renault and Ferraribhall II wrote:Let's try this one more time.

To me that says Honda right now can build whatever they want, change it as much as they want but have an engine locked for the 2015 season.bhall II wrote:Let's try this one more time.
