F1 2016 Realistic Engine specification performance mod
/!\ Highly recommend you to apply the 2016 skins and team/drivers name changes mods found in the website in order to fully enjoy this mod. /!\
I've replicated the performance of the F1 engines using data from the 2016 Australian Grand Prix.
You'll notice that overall, all the cars are 25% faster than stock F1 2015 engines, which is accurate compared to the real engines (Roughly around 850HP in 2015 and 950+HP in 2016)
In Australia, you'll be able to easily reach the 1:24s in a Ferrari or replicate Lewis' 1:23:837 pole lap time
Now, in terms of engine performance :
-Mercedes and Ferrari are very close, although Mercedes has a tiny advantage, but it is pretty negligable.
-Williams are the 3rd best, but Toro Rosso, Redbull and Force India can catch up to them in terms of pace.
-Mclaren is not as good as the above teams, but are very close compared to last year. You'll be able to get into the points pretty easily.
-Renault Sport is weaker than Mclaren, but the margin is not that big. You'll probably struggle to get into the top 10, but it is doable.
-Sauber is what you'd expect, nothing much changed, backmarkers, always. It'd take a hero to get this thing into the points.
-Manor is weaker than Sauber, and struggles like we saw in Australia, which is disappointing really considering having a special deal with Mercedes.
I will post updates as the season progresses.
Enjoy and give feedbacks, that's how we get better at this
