Blowing is banned, if they find a way around it that passes all tests then its not cheating as far as I'm concerned, they have just been clever.
Intego wrote:Wild speculations and accusations around here. According to AMuS Merc found the possibility of hot blowing in the overrun, told it to the FIA who now reprogrammes the ECU for Melbourne. Nobody used this loophole, Renault didn't even know about it. Plus it would have caused a highly increased fuel consumption.

1) dramatically increased fuel consumtion
2) shorter engine lifetime
Imo the negative effects are way too big/risky and this does in no way match the statements of Renault engineers we have seen so far, as they claim that their engine ist the most fuel efficent of all the engines available.
