    I've seen this before, but what I don't get is why if it's the NEW engine does the movie refer to it as the RS24 rather than the 2006 season RS26 engine?

    I suspect it's the 2004 engine we're still seeing, or am I missing something?

    The production at the start does say 2004. Looks similar to the old release from when they won the last lot of F1 champs. I remember the video form then because of the induction and the fuel pouring into the trumpets

    70L per 100km - yeah not too shabby - only 10x more fuel consumption for 5x more power than my car... oh no thats right i was using 30L/100km at Mallala- that puts it into perspective then...

    dyno shows the engine only goes up to 18000rpm??? Must be an earlier development, arent they suppose to rev up to 20G this year?

    Let Cosworth show you guys what 20,000rpm sounds like!

    Development of the V8 probably started as early as 2004 when the new regulations were announced. That's the only logical conclusion I can come to.

    old engine...

    I counted 10 cyclinders, though the ones at the top are hard to spot (i'm pretty sure i could see the injector & spray).
    Also got 5 pipes on the zorst extractors...

    Nate,
    You must have a brighter connection than I have. I couldn't see anymore than 8.

    Every time I watch that. I cry.

    For starters, I miss the sound of my old ZXR250 hitting the 21,500 Rev Limiter. Secondly, I cry from wishing I had the smarts to work there, or even be considered.

    The software said "Windows 98 or better". So I installed Linux.

    Pips,
    You possibly could be. I saw a special 5th Gear on Fox the other day from back in 2004? and it was an engineering comp for uni students in the UK. They had to make one safety improvement for the F1 car and 'sell' it to the guys from Renault. You got a 1 year contract, RS Clio Mk1, accomodation, tuition. WHy am I not a uni student in the UK????????????

    I agree. Seems to be the V8 configuration. Very stirring piece of video.

    I recall the earlier V10 engines were producing 900 BHP+. In any case, I think there is always a bit of hedging and pit lane understatement by each of the manufacturers in regard to power etc.

    Cheers,
    Kim.

    Just had another look at it.
    Definatly the old footage of the V10.
    If you look in the first view when it starts and you can see the induction tubes there are clearly 5 in the view when the fuel first mists up
