F1 To Relax On Engine Restrictions

December 9, 2019 by

has announced that they will be relaxing on engine restrictions for 2020, meaning that drivers could potentially face fewer grid penalties during the season. Drivers will be able to make use of three MGU-Ks for next year’s season, which is one more than the most recent one. MGU-K is the type of hybrid engine that F1 vehicles are allowed to use for all official races. The decision means that the MGU-K will now be in line with other parts of the power unit in terms of the total usage permitted by the F1.

These state-of-the-art power units have been officially split into parts for the purposes of the rules for events. The MGU-K, which makes use of energy from the rear axle and reroutes to the hybrid electrical energy used for the rear wheels, works in tandem with the three other parts, which are made up of the internal combustion engine, the turbo, and the MGU-H, which is the part of the system that retains excess energy from the turbo,

For the 2020 season, drivers will be given the chance to make use of three of each part before any grid penalties are incurred. Engines will also be recruited to have an electronic control box and a battery, with two of each being allowed for the season. The changed had been informed in the latest 2020 rules, which have only just been officially published after a meeting of the FIA World Council.
