Ferrari 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.

This is mildly interesting:

At 7k rpm pressure goes to 10 bars.
Is this usual for race car/f1 engines?
Thats not charge air pressure! Thats something else!

Someone already mentioned that it's probably oil pressure, so I was commenting on that.

Are the newer engine components (MGU-H, turbo, etc) installed in Canada a second specification or the same specification as the ones used up to now?
I'm still learning English so please excuse me if my English is not good enough and feel free to correct me via PM if you want.

Nothing too unusual, some road cars at/near that.

I wasn't aware.
Thank you for enlightening me.

Unless I'm mistaken throttle bodies or valves before the turbo inlet are banned which means the failure must be waste-gate related?

To me that sounds like a broken hose or something on the airs way to the turbo compressor side.

I know they said airflow to the turbo but based on the radio exchange it does sound a lot like a boost leak somewhere.

Yep, makes more sense. Binotto clarified that it was related to the intercooler.

At least that's a fairly straightforward fix. The original "bust turbo" diagnosis sounded quite terminal.

A leaking boost air pressure pipe was the cause.

I have couple of questions about 2019 Ferrari PU:

1. What is underneath gold foil? And why they dint made intake into plenum from front side? Obviously they dint want to waste volume from tank. But in my opinion installation is more crammed in the middle. Sure they have space above MGUH and in that skiny airbox. Two arc shaped pipes from intercooler should outweigh slight position of tank?

2. For intercooler did they have separate water pump or no? For temperature regulation you use valves, because with speed (also circuit and weather dependant) you have different cooling efficiency in sidepod radiator. Hence you need somehow regulate that intake temperature. Or i m wrong.

EDIT: Or they just regulate water flow rate with orbital water pump. Thats how they cool the engine or i m wrong. I know teams uses that type pumps for decades so i m asking to verify my thoughts.

1)Inlet manifold
2) separate pump/cooler/radiator

That means the Ferrari V is incredibly crouded, even more busy than the 2014-2018 PU, because it seems to contain:
-part of the ram air-to-compressor duct, (green in my magnificent drawing) which seems to pass between the intake manifold and the Xenomorph-head-shaped compressor-to-intercooler duct
-part of the intercooler-to-intakemanifold duct (yellow / intercooler is blue)
-part of the inake manifold (purple)
-the MGUH
