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.

For what it's worth the exhaust manifold is different to last year.

I'm not sure if this one has been mentioned yet... A great look inside how Ferrari avoid pre-ignition.

Having seen all the races, it seems not only are they avoiding pre-ignition, but ignition and post-ignition as well.

Very interesting.
I would like to know if it is possible to use the fuel which is not injected in a cylinder (during a third level recovery) to increase the fuel flow to the remaining 5 so that to limit the loss in power.
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.

Theoretically you could. But that would push the cylinder pressures in a danger zone, and it would also heat up the chamber and push other cylinders in the pre-ignition zone.

I think they all do this at part load so that's not a problem.

I remember they did in Bahrein when LeClerc lost 1 cilinder.

I posted this idea in the car thread.
Apparently, all Ferrari-powered teams made big gains in qualifying at Nurburgring:
via viewtopic.php?p=933827#p933827

So, can it be that colder weather helped Ferrari PSU? Can it be they have heat management issues?
E.g. what if the fuel flow trick was mostly meant to keep knock under control rather than to extract extra caloric energy?

Around 1,000hp including the internal combustion engine and electric motor in steady state operation.
