You’re a keen F1 historian. Remind me how well Ferrari did against Mercedes in 2014.saviour stivala wrote: ↑Wed May 22, 2019 5:01 pmIncredible and a pity that nobody from the lot of the three power unit manufacturers including the research work Profs Limebeer did for FERRARI back than could hit-on or consider these here presented mathematical equations and their resultant gains by having the MGU-K harvesting when off throttle but still not when braking. If any of the above lot did, the old days difficulties of keeping a topped-up ES for lap after lap by capturing kinetic/heat that would otherwise goes to waste only. Would have been solved.
Prof Limebeer’s published work, to which you refer, was both an exposition of how to do optimisation for the modes he and Ferrari chose to model and a marketing tool to extol how much more efficient the current PUs are in comparison to the previous V8s.
The more recent optimisation work in conjunction with Ferrari written about in the paper I referenced earlier and linked to by @subcritical71 explicitly describes the issues were talking about.
