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.

That's a little extreme. Unfortunately we will have to wait until the end of this month to see where things start heading.

America's biggest export is aircraft and related services and guess which industry will be hurt the most? Thats right. Expect America to do everything it can to recover and of course put down competing nations while they can.

America will be hurt big time.. But there will be opportunities for other countries. I dont know yet. But interesting times ahead.

This is getting offtopic. My point was about F1 and manufacturers leaving (particularly Honda, who were already making noises about not staying before this hit).

In terms of america, this page has a list of exports, aircraft are 4th, but it doesn't split out military from commercial:
https://www.census.gov/foreign-trade/Pr ... /ft900.pdf -- you want to read page 28 of 63.
A summary is as follows:

Machinery including computers: US$205.9 billion (12.5% of total exports)
Mineral fuels including oil: $199.7 billion (12.1%)
Electrical machinery, equipment: $173.2 billion (10.5%)
Aircraft, spacecraft: $136 billion (8.3%)
Vehicles: $133 billion (8.1%)
Optical, technical, medical apparatus: $90.8 billion (5.5%)
Plastics, plastic articles: $64.9 billion (3.9%)
Gems, precious metals: $59.6 billion (3.6%)
Pharmaceuticals: $53.6 billion (3.3%)
Organic chemicals: $39.3 billion (2.4%)

Let me clarify the largest single sub-category is commercial aircraft.

Honda had made 1 year deal with redbull to see new Engine regulations. Now it looks like it postphoned for one year (I think engine rules too with aero) I expect and hope one more year they will go with it but also I wonder what they are going to do.

With the shortened season, I don't know how the planned upgrades will be affected. I do know there was one significant upgrade planned to be introduced right after the summer break. Everything being so fluid now, who knows what's going to happen.
This would mean starting the season in june/july with spec 1 or spec 2 would mean small difference in performance. But starting the season in july/aug could mean starting with spec3. Especially tempting I would think if an engine freeze is suddenly being pulled forward by FIA. What are your thoughts on this?

I am sure Mercedes and Renault also have their doubts. The crisis will cut a significant part of revenue.

And total engine freeze is the only why to keep all manufacturers in F1.

With the drop in sales and subsequent recession I'd say it's really unlikely they will all stay. Actually I could see two of them leaving: Honda and Renault.

Honda have release a couple tech vids and although in total Japanese, this one in particular is talking about the MGU-H and shows the turbine and MGU-H assembly in its entirety, although blurred... Interesting to see it though. First vague look we've ever had.

That looks like it has a ~84 - 88mm compressor wheel. You only need ~72mm compressor wheel to flow enough air for 1,000hp.

Thank you for posting. It caught my attention when Naomi-san mentions generator magnet that is in between the turbine and compressor. Even if it isn't completely "free energy", it's intriguing that the MGU-H has no limit in energy generation. It makes a lot of sense!
