(cafetheology.org) – The drive train of the Mercedes team has reached a new milestone at the test in Brixworth: 50 percent thermal efficiency. This means that for the first time more than half of the energy that can be generated purely from the quantity of petrol in the tank is actually used. 100% is used in the sense of propulsion of the car; because energy is also about the hot exhaust gases, which are uselessly blown into the air. The discipline of thermal efficiency has gained importance in Formula 1 since a flow rate of 100 kilograms of gasoline per hour has been established. The old V10 suction engines, which many fans desire, especially because of their screeching sound back into Formula 1, converted the engine to less than 30 percent of its fuel power, and when the hybrid era began in 2014, the conversion rate was 44 percent – a notable improvement, but the development did not stand still, "writes the Mercedes team on a blog on his official website "Three and a half years after its debut, the Mercedes Power Unit has now achieved a conversion efficiency of more than 50 percent on the test benches in Brixworth, in other words, it is now producing more power than lost energy," it says. "A remarkable milestone for every hybrid engine and especially for a pure-bodied racing engine." As the technological development in Formula 1 progresses, a number is very impressive: since 2014, Mercedes has managed to eliminate the engine with the same fuel consumption by 109 hp Performance! The degree of thermal efficiency is thus approaching those of the diesel engines used in heavy container ships. For Mercedes, the 50 percent milestone is on time for the premiere of the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE, in which a true Formula 1 engine is installed. The super sports car also achieves an efficiency of more than 40 percent with petrol station gasoline. And even goes a step further than the current Formula One. With an electric front axle with two additional electric motors to recover even more braking energy.
