No, it is more obvious than that.

James Shunt?

Chris I think the answer to rbs' question might be something like: 125 laps, may be? While we are here!

Isolated fun, Bob? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrIPxlFzDi0

I'm assuming we're looking at a trick question then? Unless- The 2006 season saw the highest rev limits in the history of Formula One; before a 19,000 rpm mandatory rev limiter was implemented for all competitors in 2007. Cosworth was able to achieve 20,000 rpm with their V8. Honda did the same; albeit only on the dyno. is wrong?

Or am I missing something in the question.

Not a trick question, it did run 3 times in GP's & 3 times in non championship races.

Lotus 56B to be accurate, driven by Dave Walker in Holland, Reine Wissel in Britain and Emerson Fittipaldi in Italy. Figures qaround 50K were quoted for the Pratt & Whitney engine.

[QUOTE

What is the highest number of revs recorded on an engine during an F1 Grand Prix?[/QUOTE]

It must be the Lotus gas turbine car, but no idea how many !

Maybe a plane buff knows these types of numbers ?
