2014 turbos

Does anyone know what kind of regulations there will be regarding the actual turbo chargers next year? Will VGTs be allowed, are single turbos required or can multiple be fitted if a manufacturer decides? That kind of stuff.

Only one turbo is allowed. No VGT or other similar technologies. The turbo has to be inline with the crankshaft and no further than 25cm from the centre of the 'V' angle. Maximum rpm is 125,000.

Thanks Marbot. I've had a time trying to find that. I also find it funny of what little interest the F1 forum has in technical discussion.

maybe you forget, lots of people don't like the facts to get in the way of a good story ;-)

Which would technically be doable, but would probably result in twitter going into meltdown.

I think that the aim is to do as good a job as a VGT, but without a VGT. This is why the turbo will be spun up by use of an electric motor/generator, rather than varying the vanes in the turbo. It's more controllable than a VGT as well as providing a source for power generation.

So is that like an electronic Anti-Lag?
