F1's solution to a problem is to try and find a solution. Other series and specificially the v8 category in Australia just bans the thing instead.
I think that removing engine mapping settings would be good for the category. This way once in parc ferme at the start of Q1 then no settings can be changed to engine performance removing q3 modes.
For ICE engines to develop the original computationally efficient hack the map that Moore's law and better sensors should've made short work of and engineers have put the work in for true closed loop model based engine control.
It's stupid standardised ECU rules and general contempt for innovation.
Why we still have them is insane, we have an additional 12 digits of compute power now in a 20 Watt SoC over the early mid '80s.
That's a million million times more.
Also Oz supercars have complete contempt for the fuel they mandate as evidenced by compression ratio limit of 12:1 with E85. Should be a minimum of 16:1 if they got advise from a fuel chemical kinetics engineer.
