    Its probably, more than likely, the turbo....they all do it when start up depending on how the engine is setup i.e. somewhat lean or somewhat rich

    Formula 1 engine makers have been warned that they are not allowed to burn engine oil as fuel, a strategy Red Bull suspected was used by Mercedes last year.

    Simon has been down and out of luck after he left Ferrari: before he joined Honda as a "consultant", he was involved in the PURE project
