Fuel flow rate limit, that sounds retarded. I hate people who are trying to make racing more eco-friendly, they should gtfo of racing.

It's true, they also don't have a second car, only enough pieces to make an entire third car. They've also removed all the down force beyond the diffusers and wings, yet they're generating more down force than they did last year. They'll find a way around the rules, they always do.

Ferrari: "we didn't use more fuel than is allowed, our alcohol injection system just got stuck in dump mode."

They should just make them run 100 octane, thatll keep the power down.

I suspect theyll all be running DI to allow for some leaner AFRs

I don't understand this reference yet, but I'm sure all will be revealed when I get some mail with burned F1 DVDs in it, and catch up on the F1 I've missed since July 22nd.

No spoilers please!

I guess I have to go to USF1 now so I can hear that 18k rpm before it vanishes. I haven't heard a real F1 car since the German GP in 2000.

Apparently Ferrari is once again threatening to leave F1 and go to LM. I guess its been 30-minutes since I last checked so they are right on schedule again.

Racing technology filters down to consumer technology. Improvements to hybrid, diesel and fuel efficient gas engines will be hugely important in the coming years.

Ferrari in general are famous for their BS excuses for cheating around the rules. Everyone else does it, Ferrari's explanations are always just ridiculous since they're exempt from the rules.
