Current Engine Usage

Okay, as of the end of the Italian Grand Prix, here are the number of engines used:

Felipe Massa and HWMNBN: 7
Pete Rose: 9
Robert Kubica and Vitaly Petrov: 5

If a driver isn't one of the above, they've used six of their eight engines so far.  Of course, Pete Rose will suffer a 10-spot grid penalty for every race now, for there's no reason for him not to use a new engine every time out. 

It is perfectly legal for a driver to use an engine that ran in a prior race.  For example, Mark Webber used his Spa engine at Monza.  So if the Ferrari boys want save their last fresh engine for Abu Dhabi and put their Monaco powerplant in for Singapore, it's quite legal. 

Guess the Renault wins the reliability award for the season.
