The increased recovery and deployment is governed in the technical and sporting regulations, respectively.

I would love a 3.0L 20K RPM N/A V8 with KERS...no Turbo and no fuel flow limit.

You're correct about the MBZ PU. It was that around last season and should be a bit higher this season. It has surpassed the thermal efficacy of diesel engines at this point if the development rate has continued in this area. Here is an article from 2017:

Great post, my friend!
