Mercedes Power Unit Hardware & Software

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

“Number 44 asking for more power” he was asking for something that wasn’t there. Number 99 had to be reminded that more power was there to use (overtake button/mode is available) he was told.
In simple terms, and quoting from race report by what is considered as the number one race report reporter.
“FERRARI had a better weapon than Mercedes here. The SF90’s straight line speed advantage over Mercedes was huge, enough to squeak number 16 pole and thereby by having track position. But, more impressively, to leave him not under threat into turn one even with number 44 in full attack mode, battery loaded, DRS wide open from right under his rear wing through Parabolica, first from number 44 and then from number 99, virtually start to finish”.

What has Giovinazzi to do with this? :wink:

"full attack mode" doesn't necessarily mean Strat2, even if it came after Lewis' radio which it might have, and the DRS activation line is way after Parabolica, so the whole thing is nonsense even if it had anything to do with the PU hardware and software

“Number 44 asking for more power. He was asking for something that wasn’t there”.
Quoting Mercedes strategy director James Vowels 11/09/2019.
“Number 44 got everything out of the motor in Italy to possibly intercept number 16. We have various adjustments options for our drive unit to achieve maximum performance in the short term, for example an overtake maneuver. Number 44 has tried this as well. But it just was not enough to get past number 16”.

lol but it obviously went like
1. "James, this is Lewis. I need more power man."
2. "Copy Lewis. Strat X, HPP Magic to Intercept. Overtake is available. "
....
3. "It was not enough man."
4. "Copy Lewis, sorry."

see? Temperi omnia est :P

Just a reminder that this is not the thread for race talk. Thanks.
It is not white, it is not black, it is probably gray.
