So what you're saying is ferrari is pumping more than allowed limit of 124 kw (accounting for "loses") trough their mgu-k? I don't think so, this would be too easy to spot. I agree with PlatinumZealot, their advantage is purely down to ICE.Phil wrote: ↑Thu Oct 10, 2019 7:34 amI always thought the theories surrounding whatever smart thing Ferrari is doing is related to energy as opposed to it being ICU, is because there is a clear pattern when it is being used and when it isnt.
E.g. during a hot lap in qualifying. At race starts (first lap). Restarts. It points to it being confined for one lap only. Simply a better ICU would IMO not show this pattern.
There might be some tricks to sustain electrical power for longer, but even that comes down to ICE in the end. More power means less full throttle over the straights since you're going faster, means less mgu-k on that straight, means more mgu-k on other straights.. and so on. It's been debated to death.
