In any manufacturing, there is variance. PERIOD. If it is watched, and all of the lightest parts (1000+) of the bunch are directed towards a single chassis build, that chassis will have an edge over the other (by several kg), due to more available ballast. And the Engines are DEFINITELY run on the dyno before going into the cars... It has been spoken about, over and over and over by the teams since the 2006 2.4l V8 days. Most of the open discussion was about how the Factory teams cherry pick the best of the bunch, and sell the customer teams the rest. That can ONLY happen if they are broken-in and tested on the dyno before disbursement.
I cannot believe that ANY "serious" race engine would be built and installed without a Dyno break-in period.... Even YouTube racers do that.
Yeah, I'm not buying what you're selling. This is Formula 1, not this old house.
2006 is another life time ago. They ran one engine per race back then, not the same as today, where they need to last 6 or 7 races. Every KM counts. For me it very plausable that the parts for (ICE, TC Turbo Charger, MGU-H) are manufactured to tolerances as low as 0.0001. Then it's easy for them to run it in FP1 and dump the old and then run in FP2.
But I have no idea what they do. I'm a software engineer by trade, so we don't have to do any of that.
