F1 Engine - Explained

How do F1 engines work? What are the differences between a Formula One engine and a normal car engine? In this video I give a basic overview of F1 engines, and talk about some of the things that separate them from your everyday daily driver's engine. One major difference is in the valvetrain, F1 engines have used pneumatic valves, which I will go over. NOTE: Volumetric efficiency of over 100% is possible in naturally aspirated engines, thought it is not necessarily common in everyday road cars.

2014 F1 Engine - ERS - Explained
2014 Formula One engines. In 2014 F1 cars will be powered by 1.6L V6 turbocharged engines revving up to 15,000 RPM. The new F1 engines will also incorporate ERS, or energy recovery systems. The technology is ever improving for more advanced vehicles that operate at increased efficiencies. ERS is made up of multiple systems. MGU-H, MGU-K, and Energy storage will all play a critical role in increasing the efficiency of the vehicles, and adding an additional 160 HP for 33 seconds per lap on the track. -- Related Videos -- Regenerative Braking: http://youtu.be/BhOEoXfxHMc KERS: http://youtu.be/QibB4DxkasQ Please feel free to rate, comment, and subscribe!

Mercedes F1 Engine - How Mercedes Dominated 2014
The Mercedes F1 engine took a different approach, and their research and engineering has paid off well for the 2014 Formula 1 season. Their engine splits the turbocharger so the intake and Exhaust portions are on opposite sides of the engine block, allowing for cooler air and shorter intake piping, reducing turbo lag. This also allows for aerodynamic improvements. Additionally, they've designed a unique Exhaust to minimize aerodynamic drag and improve Boost performance. Most of the ideas are relatively simple, but brilliantly executed, giving Mercedes the edge for the 2014 season.
