In part four of the #Halfway2Impossible series, we discover how the team at Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains (HPP) manages the complex interactions and energy flows between the Hybrid ERS (Energy Recovery Systems) and Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) at the heart of the Mercedes-Benz F1 Power Unit!

In the quest for the unattainable ideal of perpetual motion, Silver Arrows Formula One engineers at HPP have managed to improve the thermal efficiency of the internal combustion engine two hundred times faster and further than all engineering endeavour in the preceding 140 years. Don’t forget to check out the other three episodes in this four part story of remarkable endeavour, as we seek #Halfway2Impossible.
