Reading this thread we have basically uncovered....nothing Not one team technical person has even acknowledged that oil consumption/or loss even exists..... but where there's smoke there's fire eventually it will come out...and it will likely be very interesting
Take for example the Jet Ignition principle.....we went all through 2014 and everyone tried to come up with some reason why the mercedes engine performed so well.....fuel flowing around the fuel sensor etc and many other factors ...it wasnt until Mahle let Ferrari in on the secret and the word on the street was HCCI but now we know what it really is....
Toto and Mauricio completely denied that oil burning exists for the purpose of power......I say we'll see hopefully sooner than later
Not quite "nothing" - since it was a couple of years back, after the G.P. Canada, that the FIM 1st did oil analysis..
&, oddly perhaps, given the super-lean fuel burn characteristics, which ought to reduce the likelihood of 'dilution'..
.. that assay showed significant levels of fuel-like compounds - were indeed found in the oil..
Subsequently,& sadly normative of typical FIM anal-retentive/control-freak knee-jerk responses to innovation..
..proscriptive addendum rules have been applied to the matter of oil, previously 'free', (incredibly enough)..
& naturally, these ex-post-facto rules are being imposed in a 1/2 arsed, ill-considered way, which adds to the drama..
