Honda Power Unit Hardware & Software

All that has to do with the power train, gearbox, clutch, fuels and lubricants, etc. Generally the mechanical side of Formula One.

Your link doesn't show anything. AMUS and other sites are reporting that TR guys only get new ICE and RBR gets a completely new package.

His link is correct up to before Baku weekend started, FIA PU elements list says (SO FAR). The situation is as I posted. but not yet registered because of the drain cover having stopped the season.

And I left out: the PU elements I listed have been installed and ready to go on both TS cars and both RB cars, as soon as the cars cross the pit-lane exit line their transponders will register the listed elements as having been used.

It's not clear at the moment but I don't take Honda to be the cheating type. The new engine was deployed yesterday so it's possible this was due to a faulty software map.

Several posts in the last page about dreaming certain results for certian drivers have been deleted as too far off topic.
It is not white, it is not black, it is probably gray.

The FIA mandated fuel flow sensor registers what flows through it, it does not restricts or regulate fuel flow, what flows through it is of the team’s making.

Spec2 working fine but no magical hp gap reducer as expected. Hope the originally intended spec2 (now spec3) will still arrive around Montreal. Anyone heard anything about that? Would give them enough old engines for fridays till the end of the season..

I guess this Spec 2 wasn't about Quali pace, it was more about getting a better racepace and even more reliabilitty on higher power
Strive for continuous improvement, instead of perfection.

If it wasn’t for the VSC, I am pretty sure Ver would have caught Vet. While you are right there is no magic, I am thinking the results were pretty good - especially on a power track. The fact that a Honda powered car could chase down a Ferrari powered car, THE Ferrari powered car in a race.... pretty hard to imagine last year.

From AMuS (German site)
"Man hört, dass Honda im Verlauf der Saison mit drei weiteren Ausbaustufen plant. Die zweite soll in Montreal oder Paul Ricard kommen, die dritte in Spa und die vierte abhängig von der WM-Situation am Ende des Jahres."

It is said that Honda is planning three more stages/expansion levels during the season. The second should come in Montreal or Paul Ricard, the third in Spa and the fourth depending on the World Cup situation at the end of the year.
