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.

Just look at the diagram at the end of technical regulations...

It doesn't leave much for interpretation.

I just mentioned this paper I stumbled upon in the Honda PU thread, it was co-contributed by a Ferrari Power Unit and Control Strategies group member. Its more about gearshift strategies but gives a lot of light to the different considerations that are taken when establishing the overall energy strategy. Many of the topics covered in the various PU threads.
Our results show that the energy consumption budgets not only influence the fuel mass flow and electric boosting operation, but also the gearshift strategy and the low-level engine operation, e.g., the intake manifold pressure evolution, the air-to-fuel ratio or the turbine waste-gate position.
I thought some of you may be interested in taking a look...

Maybe I'm wrong, but I remember that only a specification of gasoline and oil is admitted from this year by the rules. Did Italian F1 journalists report another fake news when they spoke bout that new rule?
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.

I am not 100% sure, but I think new specs are allowed.

You are allowed one oil upgrade through the season.
They will have to use that oil until the end of 2021.

The new engine oil has disappeared from motorsport.it; they will use a more aggressive mapping for the PU.

What type of fish? Because oil from polar latitude fish would be unsuitable, it would have to be equatorial fish, or some sort of volcanic type of mollusk.

Salmon oil and sardine oil can be used to make biodisel. Anchovy oil as well but I would prefer it as vietnamese dipping sauce. Sesame oil too has been looked at as biodiesel. Ferrari's engine smelled like a kerosene camp fire lamp, it was kind of bizarre, but it would be funny if it smelled like a vietnamese or chinese restaurant ;)

Kerosene smell could be some high density medium-chain hydrocarbon (of consistent chain lengths) to promote more unifrom combustion.

Butylene is better, that upper cylinder lubricant stuff burns clean too.
