300 bar pressure
It is suggested that chief designer Lorenzo Sassi has pushed for an innovative direction, both in terms of packaging but also in terms of performance.
One target that has been set has been to reach a 300 bar pressure in the combustion chamber, much higher than last year's figures that were understood to be around 220-240 bar.
Operating like a diesel
Ferrari's aim is to reduce the ignition time, and make the engine operate in a similar way to a diesel with auto-combustion.
If you can get the fuel to burn before the ignition spark, through high pressure within the chamber, then that will deliver a substantial increase in power. It's easy to say but very complicated to carry out.
Variable intake trumpets
Achieving that target can be improved by bringing fresh air inside the combustion chamber, and Ferrari has decided to optimise this area with variable geometry.
Although variable intake trumpets were banned in 2014, they were allowed from last year, although Ferrari did not pursue that route initially.
Last year, Ferrari has its compressor and intercooler between the cylinder banks but these are now set to be moved to make way for the variable intake trumpets. There will also be bigger air and water intercoolers than last year.
Higher pressure inside the combustion chamber to create auto combustion will obviously result in higher operating temperatures – perhaps up to 1100 degrees Centigrade.
This is why cooling has become a big focus too – especially with there being a limit of five engines for the 21 grands prix scheduled to take place this year.
These all sounds encouraging and all, but I would like to know first if all of these are true. Or there is a bit of chance that these really are what Ferrari's doing.
