F1 Energy Recovering System (ERS)
Simon Vanden Bossche
With ERS a new chapter in the Formula 1 has arrived. The latest 5 years, F1-drivers could make use of the KERS-system (Kinetic Energy Recovery System). But now, after 5 years technicians created a new technology; ERS (Energy Recovery System). This system includes an update of the previous KERS-system but also includes a new way of creating electric energy thanks to heat created by the exhaust gasses of the Turbo-engine.
Now F1-drivers can use an extra 160bhp of boost for 33 seconds per lap instead of the previous 6.5 seconds.
