Honda 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.

It seems that you lack the basic notions of chemistry, such as the difference between solvency and pH (acid or basic) ...

Seriously? I don't think you need a degree in chemistry to see that E10 won't destroy an F10 fuel pump designed for E10.

I have a nineteen eighties BMW that has been running on E10 since the 2000's. The car wasn't made for it and it does fine. Fuel pump still working to this day 30 year old car. Now why would a thousands of dollars fuel pump that was designed for E10 specifically, get corroded by E10 after 200km? Don't you think those engineers should be fired?

The E10 wasn't the problem by the way.
Sorry if I offended you. It was nothing personal. If you think I did then I would like to send you my deep apologies! And I mean that, coz I highly appreciate your pertinent and skilful knowledge from your comments here in this forum ...

I wonder if these are because of trying to make them lighter or because of new layout of these parts. Maybe both.
Or diminished Honda involvement.

Everyone's obsessing about Red Bull. How come there's no talk about the Gasly failure?

Last info is that the battery suddenly caught fire. Seems like a rare issue.

In the past, engine information was handled by Honda.
Today, the engine information is controlled by RB

Did Honda update the battery over the winter? If not, then it should be the one from last season. I would think Honda will wait until Sep 1st.

From Albert Fabrega camera, Honda mechanics can be seen working on the engine part, and other mechanics on the gearbox. (Gasly FP3)
If the engines are going to freeze, then it is normal to present an engine with more power but less reliability, right?

( New ICE, Turbo, MGU-H, MGU-K for Tsunoda .)
.
Its called the RBPTH001, :wink: and you forgot ... New ICE, Turbo, MGU-H, MGU-K, ES, CE and Exhaust for Gasly . :)

Isn't there enough space for all the components in the car?

Alright, RBPTH001. Not only Gasly who suffering PU failure, but also Tsunoda.

Yes, you are allowed to bring "reliability" and "safety" upgrades after the freeze. So not surprised if they use AT as a test bed to look for the limits.

How do you know? Tsunoda was dead last for whatever reason. Why not change the PU?

It is not now the penalty will apply, its when they use the last one
