Ferrari 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.

Is it the 2021 engine or the 2023 engine? The earlier twitter post said 2021 engine.
I heard that it was required for all teams to show their '23 engine.

It seems they can show PU's from 2021. At least Honda presented their RA621H in Suzuka.

Engines are frozen in any case. So not much difference in 2023.

Yeah. This was their (Ferrari's) 2021 engine. Look at the front of the engine where the plenum pipes would meet the intercooler. They're flat and sharply bend down in the pictures provided. That is not the case in the current (or 22) engine at all, where the pipes continue almost straight for a while and then bend down to meet the round intercooler. (Which is also not shown in the pic).

They were frozen from 2022 though. So Ferrari's '22 and '23 power unit could look significantly different. And we know they brought huge architectural changes for 2022. So this engine is largely outdated from what they are using currently. Honda's '22 and '23 engine are developments of their all new '21 engine so what they showcased is significantly closer to what's on track.

Only takes a brief google search for Ferrari 2022 power unit for spyshots of the 2022 car in the garage with an obviously different layout.

FERRARI formula one engine configuration builds for a season are allocated a build serial number. Such engines will still carry the same build serial number when revised in season. In 2021 PU-065/6 was used. In 2022 PU-066/7 was used. This year 2023 PU-066/10 is being used. this year's PU has been revised 3 times.

I mixed 21 and 22. Indeed 23 engine from the outside should look almost identical to 22?

Yes 2022 and 2023 engines looks identical. Both use the round type front of engine mounted intercooler. 2023 SF-23 PU-066/10, one of the three revisions was on the ERS part of the power unit.
