@ Mehryar, thanks for the response and your comments. Basically what i was saying was 'why didn't Brawn simply say that they have increased the RPM limit from 15000 to 18000? To obfuscate by saying an additional 3000RPM engine speed seems to be a rather clunky statement from such an F1 luminary. As for all the other changes posited i am wary as to the ability of Liberty to really take on the Manu's and deliver. The MGU-H is a perfect case in point. That little gem is fundamental to Mercedes staggering performance advantage, or so i'm led to believe. One noted journal said that Mercedes had been requested to agree with making it an ECU like 'standard' item and Mercedes would be required to supply it equally to all teams. Naturally they declined. Liberty then deleted it as a part of the new engine specs. I am not so enthusiastic as some as i believe that the final product will change dramatically from what we've just seen.The manufacturers wield massive strength and Liberty will be fully aware that once the current Concorde expires they will have to face the possibility of a diminished business if the manufacturers play hardball.
