    The reason F1 is dying is here. Unnecesary complicated and expensive they have only harm motorSPORT. They are also difficult to analyze, that's why FIA and their 10 staff members do not have a clue if the 4 p.u in grid today are 100% legal or not. The only reason Ferrari got "caught" is because they messed with the flowmeter instead of the ERS.

    To much reading. Those of us with dyslexia have to pause for every new sentence. I like to watch SVsoft because I am predominantly a visual and auditory learner, due to my dyslexia. I absolutely love Mercedes formula 1 and all of the technical videos you have posted but ones like this are very difficult to get anything out of for me. Just a thought.

    Why does no one ever talk about the turbo, all this detail about the engine and the battery and not a word about the turbo, every video I've seen about F1 power units never mentions it. also at 0:22 you forgot to include the 2014 car.

  • Hayden Isaac

    Interesting to see the unusual looking turbo design with the long shaft that runs down the centre of the V. I wonder if F1 will keep this style of engine until 2026 or change sooner and what will be next???

    Great content as usual 🙂 I have a small suggestion. Having to read the explanation makes it a bit difficult to appreciate the rest of the visuals without pausing. A voiceover would be better I guess.

      One of the things I like about SVsoft is I can pause and read text repeatedly to let it soak in, or study pictures at my leisure to pick up little details.

    I found the video creepy without a voice. Please add the voice next time. Reading text while watching the video takes more effort. I struggled watching this video. It’s like watching movies with subtitles. The text were not short, but quite long. Adding the voice would have made things so much easier to understand. The human connection was missing. It was all machine here. Videos are meant for watching and listening, not reading. Videos are not books.

    Excuse me but that is almost similar what ferrari have the year Fía tell them was prohibit??????????

    I'm sure a lot of their IP is hidden away from these videos, but it feels like Merc are giving out as much info as possible for other teams to go through with fine tooth combs. 😋

    Do you think that Mercs are deliberately and cheekely showing things that normal humans cannot see but F1 engineers will pick up on to give away some secrets a little to bit to help others to catch up a little bit? Cuz the dominance is hurting all, including Mercs?

    If mercedes are flexing their previous engines on youtube, you know the new power unit for 2021 shares nothing with the old one except it's a v6. I believe we're abot to witness a huge leap instead of marginal gains heading to the engine freeze period.

    • rbgosling

      The engine freeze comes into effect at the start of 2022. There's still plenty of work that can be done through 2021 to get the 2022 engine ready - it is THAT engine that really needs to be the optimum, as it carries through '23 and '24. But, it is true the 2021 engine has a few improvements over last year ;)

    But why the rpm never hit maximum in 15.000? Not like v8 can hit max rpm easily

  • Curious_Cat

    • rbgosling

      Mercedes HPP takes on talented graduates every year. For a lot of engineers there it is their first job after university, you don't need to build up years of experience. Study hard, show your talent, and your passion for F1, there is a place for you to come to Brixworth and help design the most awesome engines the world has seen! While it's still true the men are a majority there, there are a fair few women engineers so you certainly wouldn't feel out of place.
