Somewhere in the Engine Threads there is a post from preseason testing where a journalist using some kind of device that somehow measures horsepower said Ferrari and Mercedes were both at 990 hp. Don't know if it's true though...SuperCNJ wrote: ↑Mon Jun 03, 2019 2:12 pmI always wonder where the journalists get this information and how reliable it is.zibby43 wrote: ↑Sat Jun 01, 2019 6:05 pmMercedes will debut their Spec 2 PU in Montreal.
Output is rumored to be at 1,020 horsepower. A significant increase in power for Mercedes.
"Mercedes will debut engine 2 that will be capable of more than 1,020 horsepower, with a significant increase in power, but without affecting the reliability"

Also, any idea how much power Mercedes had before this upgrade and how the Ferrari PU compares?
-I hope 1020hp is true...at last we can say: Formula 1 engines produce over 1000 hp!!
