Renault 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.

The 2018 intake plenum looked cool. But the 2019 one is shorter and less wide
Top: 2019

Edit: Didnt see this message. It's indeed much more compact

Renault are lying they don't have a powerunit that is better than Honda they are dead last they don't even have the budget to match the top three.

This is a picture from 2017....

We still talk about engine because we were traumatized in 2014, but the truth is that engines are all quite close,
chassis is now again making WDC winner, not engine.
I also think that the engines are all quite close, but what you say about the picture .....
It is not from 2017, it is from 27-09-2019. @Snorked posted it here. It is from a PU briefing held by Asaki.

Looks like BS to me because the Renault PU made huge power gains compared to 2018 and they were real - many reliable sources and datas confirmed them and they were very visible on the qualy speed trap figures compared to 2018, but according to this graph the 2018 to 2019 gains are minimal...
Same goes for 2016 where Renault made it's second biggest winter gain...
