Title: Never mind Honda F1 party mode Mercedes finds more HP for 2019
Post by: John S on January 09, 2019, 08:12:33 PM
The worrying thing for other F1 engine builders, if Merc seemingly small gain of a dozen HP is real, is summarised in this quote from theJudge13.com article.

"these are the latter stages of the current engine formula, and marginal gains are harder to achieve closing up the field across the grid. Even small gains therefore make a big impact."   :swoon:

It would be ridiculous to think the people who made the 'best' engine wouldn't be able to improve it.

I bet the geniuses who come up with these engine settings hate the term "party mode" ... makes is sound like a cheap Dodgem/Bumper Car (hang on, isn't that what Max drives already???  :DD )

I thought Party Mode for Honda was what happens if an engine of theirs makes it to the checkers without the magic smoke leaking out.

I thought Party Mode for Honda was what happens if an engine of theirs makes it to the checkers without the magic smoke leaking out.

I had a similar thought, the only difference being that 'Party Mode' was activated if the engine made it to the 2nd last lap, where the magic smoke "engine let go" controlled a piston, which activated one of these bad boys >>>
