The new power units will produce the same 750hp figure of the current engines but a larger percentage of that will come from Energy Recovery Systems.
The current KERS currently produces 80hp for 6.7 seconds per lap, while the new ERS will deliver 161 hp for 33.3 seconds per lap.
Well, that's not true. We currently have ~750 bhp + 80 KERS. So around 750 continuous power plus 80 boost for 6.7 seconds. No we will have around 600 continuous power and 160 boost for a much longer period, but still not continuous. Whatever perspective you look from at this, that's less power.
"The engines will also deliver much more torque - especially on the exit of the corners. Cars with more power than grip coming out of the corners - that is something that we all enjoy.
That's good. I wonder what will the exact figures be, especially considering KERS. But we have to remember that what matters is the torque figures on the wheels, and they are greatly affected by gear ratios. Engine revs will be lower, so the gearbox won't increase torque as much as it used to. The effect may not be as huge as some think.
How many have though? The unrestricted V10's and the turbos in their final years (excluding qualifying spec)?
In race trim I don't think that neither V10s nor Turbos had 1000 bhp, though they were close.
Anyway I also wish that F1 was back to V10 era peak power levels.
