No engine upgrades during the season... They can introduce reliability upgrades, but they have to proof FIA that those aren’t performance upgrades (how they are going to police this, is everyone guess).FDD wrote:Engine upgrade is allowed for this season, or teams must run with spec introduced on the start of the season?

Experts estimate Ferrari's deficit in the combustion engine at 15 to 20 hp. On the other hand, Ferrari is already ahead in terms of electric drive. The charging mode is activated later on the straights than in the competition.
You have your information from an article, just like me. Mine is AMuS, a pretty reliable one. Don't know about racefans and/or the guys who wrote that article.
Other than Franco Nugnes I’ve not seen any other person talking about the split turbo. The last most reliable sources told that Ferrari is going for an ambitious and new design path, but not the split turbo.
At chrono gp, they insist that Ferrari is running split turbo. I agree tho, unless they've been running a split design since last year (like renault), its a big riskLM10 wrote: ↑Mon Jul 19, 2021 7:28 pmOther than Franco Nugnes I’ve not seen any other person talking about the split turbo.

I don’t think Ferrari has ever seriously considered the split turbo design for next season as that would not be a wise decision considering Mercedes and Honda have tons of experience with it compared.
