 The last naturally aspirated engine

A few generally recognized theories of automotive engineering also apply to this crank drive. Yes, it is a V-engine, as you can see from the each two connecting rods on a crank pin. The eight pistons are relatively easy to recognize. No, at best they have the coating in common with series pistons.

There are basically two types of V8 (90 °) engines. This also means that they differ in the firing order. The one used above has 180° from one crank to the next (flat-plane). If it had only one connecting rod per crank instead of two, it would be a crankshaft for the four-cylinder in-line engine. This is also expressed in the firing order 1-8-2-7-4-5-3-6. If you take the numbers 1-2-4-3, you get the firing order of a left-handed four-cylinder.

For the remaining 8-7-5-6, the same applies to the second cylinder bank, if one were to number them the other way round. Above you can see a crankshaft for normal V8 engines. The cranks are assigned to each other by each 90° (cross plane). With this crankshaft, the engine runs less hard. However, this hardness also indicates the higher performance.

The type of crankshaft production, as above, is usually reserved for special companies. We can only announce that the second one is forged, surface-hardened and made of chrome-mobybdenum steel. At the crankshaft above are noticeable on the front in the direction of travel two straight-toothed wheels for gear drive, the left one presumably to the oil pump, the right one to the engine control.

The impression in the piston crown clearly shows that the inlets are supplied from the rambox inside the 'V' and the smaller outlets are each discharged to the outside. The stroke of the pistons is extremely much smaller than the bore, even for an F1 engine. In this way it is possible to stay below the critical limit of 25 m/s even at a maximum speed of 19,000 rpm.

Listen to the sound in the video below.

It is the last of its class. Then it is reduced again by two cylinders and, in particular, its maximum speed is limited to 15,000 rpm. This also and especially has to do with the turbocharger, which also affects the sound in Formula 1. After all, the new one is given one more automatically shiftable gear. Despite fewer cylinders, the weight increases by 50 kg.

The type designation of the vehicle is made up of the year of its presentation and the number of cylinders. The Kinetic Energy Recovery System for recovering braking energy has been around since 2009, which, however, will be used for the first time by all teams in different versions in the 2013 season.

No, the F 138 cannot turn the tide either. The last World Cup title dates from 2004, but the fifth in a row by Michael Schumacher. 2013 was the year of Sebastian Vettel, in which he won his fourth and final world title for Red Bull Renault. His team-mate Mark Webber finished second. Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa at least achieved third and fourth place, Ferrari third place in the constructors' championship.
