F1 Teams / Re: Mercedes-AMG F1 set for title sponsor change next term
« Last post by John S on January 21, 2022, 10:45:44 PM »
Well I doubt that Petronas has left Mercedes.
 
Yeah I know I posted this topic in October last year, but Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team is still currently the team name declared on the entry list for this season.

I'm also pretty sure Toto & Merc debunked the rumour, in much of the media that Aramco was replacing Petronas, within a week or two of my original post. Be a real suprise now to everyone if they do change - but hey this is the F1 circus and anything can happen.  ;)

I doubt Merc have not done their due diligence and will be in trouble I would expect it to have been tested to death!

Losing Petronas might be a big loss for Mercedes as I believe that Petronas Fuel Formula and Lubricating oils plays a big role in Mercedes dominace. If Aramco is unable to offer the same level of expertise as Petronas, Mercedes is in big trouble.

Hopefully this would close the gap and we will see more competition up front! :yahoo:

Remember when F1 was about inventing and using new technology? Now they just ban it.

I remember that, Lonnie. But then, I'm old enough to remember when snakes had legs.  ;)

Pit Pass / Not an F1 rocket engine for Merc in Brazil but 'Party Mode' locked in.

Scott Mansell & Craig Scarborough give us the lowdown on why Lewis' Merc engine was so much faster than the rest in Brazil 21. Oh they definetly agree it was faster than other engines in the race, but no rules where broken - How is this possible?

We all supposed 'Party Modes' had been outlawed, however only the ability to turn up your engine from it's normal max for a selected time is what FIA actually banned.
So if you code your PU to operate at full beans under max acceleration for it's normal running cycle this is not using 'Party Mode' - it's just a Spicy engine.  :swoon:
Merc also able to duck budgetary restraints as an engine manufacturer with extra short life engines.  :crazy:

Begs the question of how many OEM teams might be prepared to take advantage of this short life cycle for engines this season?

Hey maybe the days of single use Quali engines is not over after all.  :DD

This term 'J' (Jounce) dampers get the heave-ho from F1.
Now hands up how many of us really knew these mass damper style things still existed?  ;)

However there still seems to be uncertainty this regulation amendment will put an end to Merc's trick rake/floor stalling device. The jury still seems to be out on whether or not its a mass/inertia damper?
Also since there is little info on this devilish device, is it transferable to the new gen venturi tunnel cars this year anyway?  :DntKnw:
