    Teams get 3 engines for the season. Whoever can pull it off is going to be in pretty good shape at the end of the year.
    Engine penalties are going to be a big part in determining the outcome for 2018.

    So...airflow, cooling and going fast with a detuned engine has got to be figured out in testing.

    • Meanwhile, each driver is permitted to use only a limited number of power unit elements – of which there are six types – during a single season. The limits are three ICE (internal combustion engine), MGU-H (motor generator unit-heat) and TC (turbocharger), and two ES (energy store), CE (control electronics) and MGU-K (motor generator unit-kinetic). Should a driver use more than this, a grid penalty will be imposed.
    • The first time a driver uses an additional element over and above the prescribed limits, a ten-place grid penalty will be given. If he then uses other additional elements a five-place penalty (or penalties) is imposed. Use yet a further example of any given element and another ten-place penalty is received – and so on.

    I hear some teams are going to take a 4th so they can continue development through the year.

    Maybe Honda slipped Renault some $$ and said make sure they get the duds?

    Overheating, oil leaks and today was the turbo needed replacing.

    Maybe they are training a new backup crew?!?! Looks like they’ve NEVER done this before and only saw videos about it

    And that's it!

    ALO just beat his teammate's best testing time by a whole sec! Have been impressed with Vandoorne, but that lap was great! Good recovery to finish on a high note and decent lap tally.

    Not surprised...

    I still see that as a message from Ferrari, and it's loud and clear.

    Gonna be interesting in Australia for sure!

    Man...I hate the Australia race. Its really just another test session on a shitty track.
    If I wasn't so horny to see some race cars going wheel to wheel in HD...I wouldn't watch that shitshow.
    They should start in Dubai or Abu Dhabi
