How does F1 engines work?
Formula 1 engines are at the front of technology for internal combustion engines today. They are 2.4 liter V8 engines, with an operating range of 2000-20000 RPM. Like most car engines they have pistons connected via connecting rods to a crankshaft, they have a transmission and a clutch, as well as cam shafts and valves. Current F1 engines are naturally aspirated, and are not turbocharged. In order to produce 900hp, these engines must be capable of revving very high, 20,000 revolutions per minute to be exact. To do this these engines can not use conventional valve springs, but instead used compressed gas to return the valve to the closed position. Apart from that, and a few differences in some part locations such as the clutch, an F1 engine works just the same as any car engine.
The 3100 SFI engines were rated to 160HP, like the 3300 engines were. The 3.1 MultiPort FI were rated at 140HP. Of course, you certainly can swap a 3.1 MPFI engine in your Century, and in my opinion, you would do a very good choice. If a 3.1 MPFI can work in a Chevrolet Cavalier, why wouldn't it work in a Century?
That is difficult to determine. Records of F1 tornadoes before the 1980s are unreliable as many tornadoes that would likely be rated F1 were missed. The only extensive published work from before 1950 only lists F1 tornadoes if they result in a fatality, and killer F1's are rare. Since 1950 Florida has recorded 846 F1 tornadoes.
No. Once the sale of the team to Genii Capital was completed after the 2010 season and the subsequent agreement with Lotus, the team applied for a British racing license for the 2011 F1 season. The team will be known as Lotus Renault GP and is not afflliated with the F1 team known as Team Lotus that began racing in the 2010 season. Engines are still manufactured at a Renault plant in France.
Each driver may use no more than eight engines during a championship season. Should a driver use more than eight engines, he will drop 10 places on the starting grid of the event at which an additional unit is to be used. As of the end of the year, there were fears that Ferrari do not have enough engines to finish the season but everyone finished the season within their allotted quota of engines without…
