All that has to do with the power train, gearbox, clutch, fuels and lubricants, etc. Generally the mechanical side of Formula One.

Tadaaa. My applause is usually reserved for original interviews and authors :wink: The rest of the article, albeith not entirely related to this subforum, is also moderately interesting.
This sounds as though this is a really old article fluffed up to be current. The article is still saying the engine freeze is from 2023 when it is now 2022 and Taffin wouldn't be talking about "studying the Merc/Honda turbo concept" and that "it is a route we could possibly go down", they would be well and truly into development by now. In fact there is a photo of Alonso visiting Renault and it looks like a split turbo engine is on the dyno! Talk about a photo slip up! (apologies in advance, not aware of source) (see below)
