I didn't know there was going to be an energy recovery system or ERS on the turbo, I thought the turbo was an ERS, well it is so they are going to bolt an ERS to an ERS.

These engines will be governed by two different fuel restrictions: a maximum fuel-flow rate of 100kg an hour; and a maximum of 100kg of fuel to be used through a race.

That makes it flat out for only 1 hour. Some races are nearer 2 hours. So 1/2 fuel for these?

It does sound nuts but ... smart arse attack  Grin

The drivers aren't flat out on the throttle for all the lap, especially the races that last longer  Tongue

Hehe  Cheesy

Seriously looking forward to next years season, who knows, someone might actually make a better car than Adrian Newey, these new rules are going to shack it up for sure.

This season race list, one new race in Russia but slightly surprised to see Bahrain still having a GP

I saw that, seems a bit daft to me, I see why they dreamed it up just to try to inject a bit of life into the end of the season but I don't really thought through that one.

I'm not for the double points on the last race either, Isn't F1 about reliability over the whole season ?

I don't know, it seems to be a ploy to keep it interesting down to the last race and nothing more.
