    Says? Formula E =/= Formula 1. And Formula E isn't all that efficient currently compared to F1 either, also FE and the entire electric cars idea is possibly not sustainable in current form but that is a beast for a different thread that we could go to. So I'd rather we stick to F1 cars at the Spanish GP, and why they do what they do in regards to your original inquiry, which was the oil burn.

    Suits me.
    So . How much power does the oil burn give ?

    Enough to justify doing it in the first place to begin with. But so far I've heard they are all a bit tight lipped about the precise numbers.

    I posted a good video to teach you about it in the constructor thread, it gives them around the 900-1000 power they seek based on what has been said. How much of that comes from the oil burn is unknown but that isn't the point of oil burn, which is why I posted the video for you and tagged you.

    Pistons have to be lubricated somehow

    I'll watch it when in sober .
    I understand the BASICS of oil burn .
    It acts as an upper cylinder lubricant and a fuel .
    But if it can raise the operating limit of a £1000 , 4000rpm 4cyl diesel to 20,000rpm . What will it do to a £2,000,000 v6 turbo petrol engine ??

    I don't understand how you keep asking this if you know the basics. Burning oil in a 4cyl diesel transit van, isn't the same as what they're doing in F1.

    By default the wet setup has a higher ride height because the full-wets have a greater radius. That's one of the reasons that the car needs to know which set it's wearing.

    Keep,telling yourself that . It's all about the basics !
    More fuel burnt = more power .

    Yes, but no power gain is allowed by burning oil.

    Sorry . I meant more fuel completely burnt = more power .

    And that's why they've changed the rules !

    Keep telling myself what? I posted a video showing you exactly what it meant for F1 how they were doing it. Now if your transit van is using the low viscous oil that is almost comparable to fuel, being fed an excess of it to make up for a controlled fuel flow. As well as potentially burning it through a turbo compressor for additional power...then I can see the point of your question. However, I highly doubt it is doing any of that, so I again ask why do you insist on trying to make some parallel between them?

    What article in the rules says this before the rule change the recent change? I would like to know because as far as I can see there isn't one, it's once again one of those loop holes/spirit of the rules issues, that the FIA is coming down on. And as usual making it seem as if the teams are bad people for doing their job and exploiting what needs to be to win.

    There's your problem. Formula One is hard enough to understand sober fella ;)

    Its always been there, the only fuel allowed for combustion is petrol. Artical 19 :tup:

    They have clamped down on it by restricting the amount of oil used in the recent rule change.

    There not bad people just very good at what they do and there will always be exploiting of the rules :tup:

    Well this thread went downhill...rapidly. So, how about that Italian Gran Premio? :D

    That doesn't make sense, considering oil is combustible and will naturally have a thermal energy conversion to the system. The recent article restricts the amount of oil in newer engines that were introduced after a certain point, if you're running say a spec 3 Honda engine or an earlier Ferrari engine, then you can run more than the 2.7 liters in a race but somewhere more in the area of 3.1 or 3.2 liters.

    Which should be the case, it's F1. People usually complain about this sort of thing and as much as I don't care for the FIA I'd say they're in a damned if they do or don't situation. If they don't regulate as much as they do and open regs, tons of money gets spent, if they restrict and force teams to think harder, more money will still get spent. So I'm glad it's something you don't think is necessarily bad but also not a good thing in regards to smaller teams.

    The fuel burn ruling came up and became a talking point around the Italian GP, so we are having a discussion about a topic in relation to this weekend.

    That's the rule that's been clarified. The rules did not exclude an additive in oil which helped said fuel to combust. Given the way the fuel is expanded, pre-exploded and re-exploded in an F1 cylinder such additives can mix far more easily with fuel than with previous engine types, I suspect that's why this is only a recent development. Such oil wouldn't be good for high mileage hence the allegation that the "top up" oil tanks contained something with more bang and lower mileage possibilities while the main tanks contained normal high mileage (about 200 :) ) oil.

    It's worth noting that the clarification doesn't prevent the practice entirely if one wants to argue the letter of the rules, that's why the new mandate is for only one oil mixture per engine and at a much lower consumption rate, the low mileage of the "cheat" solutions will be deterrent in themselves. For now.

    So...does anybody actually have a starting grid for tomorrow's race after all the grid penalties have been applied?

    I don't follow F1 enough to know who changed what and how many spots they lost. All I know is, qually was practicly for bragging rights at best! :lol:

    I really want to believe Ocon and Stroll have a shot at the podium - but probably 5th, 6th or something is more realistic.

    Vandorne gets a 25 place grid penalty for engine change and drops from 8th to 18th.

    There's so much grid penalties, that I don't even know who's starting where anymore.
