Is 1.3 megajoules good compared to Ferrari and Merc? That would mean they can put max 3.3 Mj to the mguk, right. I assume both Ferrari and Mercedes already do the full 4 Mj.
A couple of points.
Firstly the MGU-H output can go directly to the MGU-K. The 4 MJ limit is from the ES to the MGU-K so you can’t add 1.3 to 2 to establish what is going down the regulated path.
Secondly the 1.3 MJ figure would be about 20kW output from the MGU-H, I think that the MGU-H output for Ferrari/Mercedes is more like 60kW, maybe up to 80. The translator has said “won” when I think they meant “gained”. So Honda are making perhaps 20kW more
now than when they started.
*wakes from F1t slumber* ... It's been a while.
Re: Henry's points; Agreed.
Just to reiterate, 4MJ per lap through the MGU-K is not actually a limit written in the regulations.
It's only the ES->MGU-K energy route that is limited to 4MJ in the regulations.
If you go ES->MGU-H->MGU-K as the route, that's not limited in regulations.
Consequently the MGU-K can deploy more than 4MJ on a lap, by addition of the two routes.
