Brought to you by TheJudge13 contributor Mattpt55 – the best in FIA Technical Documents looked at slightly irreverently
Not sure if you like technical documents but are curious? Why not start here and play a little PU poker. Wonder who’s most at risk of a grid penalty for too many engines? You have come to the right place. Enjoy. Like technical documents and want more, but can’t find them anymore on the FIA site? Worry not, just check out the #TechF1 series published before each Grand Prix, right here on #TJ13.
No mention of Mercedes using all of their remaining tokens on Lewis and Nico’s 3rd power unit?
Nothing in the docs as of yet. Likely we’ll see something in the scrutineering for tomorrow. Similarly we’ll see the updated PU count
I’m confused as to how Jenson has used more PU components overall yet Alonso seems to be getting the bigger penalties at recent races. Also, wasn’t the point of taking two penalties at the last race so they had a stock of engines to work through? Taking another penalty either suggests they have had another failure or aren’t planning any upgrades in the next few races.
I also can’t understand why McLaren have used so many CEs? Surely these are easily transferrable between engines and are reprogrammable so if anything has changed they can just update them?
