F1 RENAULT THE BEST ENGINE AFTER MERCEDES

M it advent of hybrid technology, the picture changed. Suddenly, aerodynamics was no longer the key, but engine performance.

F1 Renault the best engine after Mercedes. Almost like in the 1960s or 20 years later in the turbo era. In 2014 the power determined the order. Mercedes F1 was vastly superior. The engine factory in Brixworth had earlier developed the drive unit more consistently than the competition.

According to Auto, Motor und Sport, the Mercedes power source is the most powerful of the entire F1 field. Renault, Honda and Ferrari follow with several dozen HPs less than the Mercedes.

The medium does not report how much horsepower the German power source has. However, the Mercedes certainly has 25 HP more than the Renault, which is the second most powerful engine in the field. Honda, in turn, lags thirty horsepower behind Mercedes. Ferrari, which was thrown back after some new engine guidelines last year, is fifty horsepower short.

AMuS has taken the first sectors of the Red Bull Ring and the Hungaroring to express the difference in speed. Both sectors are high-speed pieces and therefore representative for those with a stronger engine. On the Red Bull Ring, the Mercedes-powered teams averaged the fastest over that sector, while the Ferrari’s lagged behind on the timesheet.

The difference between Renault and Honda is negligible in practice. It is difficult to compare figures one on one, because cars can differ in aerodynamics, but AMuS concludes that Renault and Honda are not much different to each other, albeit that Renault has just a bit more horsepower.
