Hmm I do not agree that nothing is banned.godlameroso wrote: ↑Tue Mar 13, 2018 5:41 pmNothing is banned, they can still burn oil just the amount the ICE consumes is regulated to .6 liters per 100km or .7qt per 60mi. Which is still a ridiculous amount. Most road cars that have oil consumption issues are burning a liter per 1,600km not per 160km like is allowed in f1. That's a 1,000% difference.
Turbine and compressor are not part of the engine in the 2018 F1 Technical Regulations under appendix 2 power unit systems, functions and components. They are part of PU pressure carging system. I see where you are going.
ARTICLE 20 : ENGINE OIL
20.1 Purpose of Article 20 :
20.1.1 The purpose of this Article is to ensure that the engine oil used in Formula One is engine oil as this term is generally understood. The function of an engine oil is to lubricate moving parts, to improve the overall efficiency of the engine by reducing friction and to reduce wear. It also cleans, inhibits corrosion, improves sealing, and cools the engine by carrying heat away from moving parts. Engine oils should not enhance the properties of the fuel nor energize the combustion. The presence of any component that cannot be rationally associated with the defined functions of the engine oil will be deemed unacceptable.
20.1.2 Any engine oil, which appears to have been formulated in order to subvert the purpose of this regulation, will be deemed to be outside it.
Literally you are not allowed to use engine oil for anything not mentioned in 20.1.1 .
