Engine & Gearbox Usage #5 - Catalunya

Engine and Gearbox Usage

The revised rules on engine usage mean that there is no simple comparison between
teams - at least not at this stage of the season. I'll include a rather long summary
of engine usage so far.

ES# - Engine Serial # - for each driver
EV# - Event number - number of events that engine has been used

Gearboxes

The same 4-event rule still applies, drivers must use the same gearbox for four consecutive
events. Any forced gearbox changes will result in a 5-place grid penalty at that event. Drivers
who fail to finish a race are able to change gearboxes at the next event without penalty.

01 AUS   1 Hamilton    - new 'box (post-Qual), 5-place penalty
02 MAL   4 Räikkönen   - DNF (AUS), free change
02 MAL 15 Vettel - DNF (AUS), free change
02 MAL 23 Barrichello - new 'box (pre-Qual), 5-place penalty
03 CHN  10 Glock       - new 'box (pre-Qual), 5-place penalty
03 CHN 23 Barrichello - free change because he used a spare 'box (MAL)
04 BRN   9 Trulli      - DNF (CHN), free change
04 BRN 17 Nakajima - DNF (CHN), free change
04 BRN 10 Glock - free change because he used a spare 'box (CHN)
05 ESP  17 Nakajima    - DNF (BRN), free change
Fourteen drivers completed a four-race sequence in Bahrain and began a new sequence in
Spain - Hamilton, Kovalainen, Massa, Kubica, Heidfeld, Alonso, Piquet, Bourdais, Buemi,
Webber, Rosberg, Sutil, Fisichella & Button. Nakajima had a free change after failing to
finish in Bahrain. Five drivers - Räikkönen, Trulli, Glock, Vettel & Barrichello are still
in mid-sequence because they had changes at earlier events.

Barrichello (MAL) and Glock (CHN) had enforced changes and had to use a spare gearbox,
incurring a 5-place grid penalty. Both drivers were allowed a new 'box at the following
event, starting a new 4-race sequence. The Technical Reports state, "The above driver
had to replace his previous gearbox during the last event for a spare gearbox and this
was before the four consecutive events expired. Therefore he may use a new gearbox at
this event and the four consecutive events will start here in accordance with Article
28.6a of the 2009 Formula One Sporting Regulations."

The Technical Report (MAL) didn't mention that Hamilton had a new 'box at Sepang. This
may be an omission by Jo Bauer, or that McLaren chose not to make a change. Hamilton
had a new gearbox for the Spanish GP, confirming that McLaren did not change his 'box
in Malaysia.
