    ??? That's from 2008.

    2014 F1 Engine - Explained - YouTube

    As you know:

    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.

    2006 Porsche 997 Carerra Coupe 6-MT - daily driver
    1992 Honda (Acura) NSX 5-MT - classic investment I couldn't resist and occasionally drive
    2004 Honda S2000 AP2 6-MT - my last track day car (FOR SALE or not, depending on how I feel when I fall out of bed tomorrow morning)
    2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR 6-MT - when I need a backseat, 4-doors, or a real trunk, and still want to haul ass . . .

    Wouldn't expect you to understand. The specs on F1's anything more than about 20 years old have been closely guarded secrets for a long time. Much speculation, but no pics or hard numbers. The internals of the Cosworth and Honda engines floating around this week are really the first genuine images and specifications of the internals of a modern F1 engine. Quite a revelation if you are a gearhead.

    Hondas info actually lists engineering revisions and materials mixed in with Kanji characters, stuff like "BeCu50" (copper beryllium valve guides and seats). And oh those ports, lawdy.

    Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.

    This kind of technology is closely guarded. When I was shooting a story for Speed News at HPD in Valencia, I was asked not to take any photos of a number of things we saw that day, particularly the lab where they did material and failure analysis.

    I was also promptly and courteously asked to leave the dyno room when I entered it with my camera.

    With regard to the ports, I really dig how the valve guides do not intrude in the the throats at all.

    Ports. Incredibly steep included valve angle. Teeny combustion chamber.

    Unbelievably compact and lightweight piston rings. I didn't know what these were at first. "Why are they showing pics of retaining rings?"

    Interesting that they are using garden variety 2618 alloy, just like the Wiseco's in my Miata.

    What's weird in this pic is the earlier engines having larger exhaust than intake valves. I can only assume this is back when variable valve timing allowed them to achieve the needed curtain area by keeping the intake open longer or something.
