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

Don’t panic, Ferrari should have a bit more experience and knowledge in building engines than you and me. :lol: A thing which you don’t understand or don’t see the advantage in does not have to be a bad thing.

Also, what would you expect a split turbo to bring Ferrari in comparison to Mercedes and Honda? Why do you think that this is the only way to go? Especially considering that both other manufacturers have developed the split turbo design for many years now and have tons of more experience?

I think you answered all yours questions in the first sentence, i really started panicking after reading that article #-o :lol:

tbh, if nothing else, a split turbo definitely brings 1. Packaging benefits/overall smaller engine
2. Colder intakes and subsequently, smaller intercoolers.
Also it brought so much success to honda, and now Renault's switching too..

Ferrari was worried that they would be at a disadvantage without a narrow nose and cape, but they were able to create an effective solution.
