How Ferrari got its power back

Ferrari hopes to have done enough work with its Power Unit to match at least Renault right from the start of the season. Given that’s a gain of over three per cent from one year to the next, and close to the end of the development of a cycle that started already seven years ago, it’s clear the Italians did a lot of work, as for their rivals, gaining between ten to 15 bhp has already been a massive challenge. That indicates the gains were in excess of ten bhp on the V6 alone, as the normal calculation made by the engine experts is that you gain one tenth of a second per lap per gain of ten bhp.
