nah seriously thats pretty nuts.. they're about 3.5 litres those v10s yeh?
yeh i seen pics of the pistons in them.. they're freaken tiny. anything else and they couldnt get the 19,000(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) rpm.. plus they're really really short for less friction hence the 500k rebuild thing. awesome motors made for one race, and made to win that one race.
3 litres & no engine changes for a race weekend from this season in F1.

I saw an article in MOTOR mad a couple of years ago about their previous F1 engine and it was 600kW at 18,000 RPM. The car + driver weighed in at 600kg. That makes for a nice ratio.
As for torque, I'd hazard a guess and say "not much". That'd be why it needs to rev so much to get those power figures. Given that it idles at 4,000 RPM tends to back up this theory (to me anyway ).

torque??? who needs torque lolol the bmw p83 90 degree v10 produced 920bhp at 19,100rpm but due to these new rules of one engine per gp they are predicting that itll be around 860-870bhp at 18,500rpm and a little heavier but lap times will sill fall due to tyre development
