From the cover: As the editor in chief of Race Tech and the editor of Race Engine Technology, lan Bamsey has regular access to the technical directors directly responsible for todays Formula One engines. This access plus information from many other sources close to the heart of Formula One has enabled him to produce a unique insight into the technology of the contemporary V10.
Since 1989 V10 crankshaft speed has increased from 13,000 to 19,000 rpm. At the same time horsepower has increased from 650 bhp to more than 900 bhp, in spite of the reduction in capacity from 3. 5 to 3. 0-litres made from 1995. In an age of great secrecy in Formula One, this important in-depth research insight for the first time reveals the technology behind this remarkable progress.
