(Some Guy)   Ferrari proved they're not horsing around at Bahrain; Red Bull's engine put the "Stop" in "Verstappen." George Russell is a "Podium Sniffer," Valtteri Botas had to move to Alfa to be the "alpha," & Sergio Perez was the No. 2 is RB's "double-whammy"   (sports-central.org) divider line

In F1, there's making reliable engines fast, and then there's making fast engines reliable.

Sunday showed which strategy each team was using -- and the ones who chose the former generally performed better.

Oh god, I thought this site was done after the football season was over.

The aero reg changes were the focal point for the media. It seems like the E10 fuel should have been a bit more in-focus.

I think the aero changes have been such a focus because it seems that is the predominant issue that's finally taken Mercedes off their thrown.  It will take a few races to determine the full effects of the E10 and Merc's power issues.

The E 10 fuel is definitely a problem for the Mercedes engines. Their customer teams were at the ass and of the field, and the only reason they didn't finish lower was because 3 out of 4 Red Bull engines sharted the bed.

Agreed, but it's only now showing up after the significant aero issues have been largely dealt with by the works teams.

Essentially they couldn't figure out how bad the E10 issue was until they figured out how to stop bouncing down the field.

It's a problem for the mercedes engines? Williams has always been slow and been on Merc power. McLaren tested well but performed poorly in the race. Mercedes was competitive, but off the pace of the podum. But 3 out of the 4 Honda/Red Bull engines failed to finish the race, with fuel issues.

It would seem that the fuel issue is impacting the entire field, but it's really impacted the Honda/RB camp. Reporting is pointing more toward Merc having a floor problem, driving them to need a draggyt rear wing. RB had 3 engines grenade.

The fuel is affecting the entire field but in different ways.  So far, it appears Mercedes tried to shrink their engine to gain an aero advantage around the engine bay packaging, but in doing so had to make some engineering sacrifices to deal with the extra heat E10 fuel generates.  All indications are that they sacrificed some power with respect to the rest of the field, but we won't know for sure until they can figure out how to make their car stop bouncing off the track.

If they actually did that to their engine, that's a massive fark up because there's an engine freeze now. The engine manufacturers are locked into these engines until the next regulation change (in 2024, I think?)

As for the Red Bull issues, here's some background that I read yesterday. It was noted that they never did a full race simulation during testing (and we may know why now).

As of the last article i read, engines are frozen until 2026. Works for me.
