All teams will use less oil, not only Ferrari.
oh well, yes fair point it's a rule change? but anyway personally i have huge respect for Ferrari's engineering and it's a great, fabulous competition with Mercedes. Ferrari were talking about coolant weren't they and now this is on Racefans:
“For this year we are putting significant effort into making sure that all the cooling fluids on the power unit operate at a higher temperature,” said Cowell. “This increases the temperature difference between that coolant fluid and the ambient temperature that we are racing in, which increases the effectiveness of the cooling system.
“That’s a tough challenge though, because large parts of the engine are made from aluminium and the temperatures that we are operating at mean the material properties are decaying quite rapidly. Managing that over an eight-race distance power unit cycle is a tough engineering challenge but that’s what we are striving for.
so bring it on
