F1 Pneumatic Valve Spring, a closer look

All that has to do with the power train, gearbox, clutch, fuels and lubricants, etc. Generally the mechanical side of Formula One.

Then the answer is obvious weld 4 bike engines together on a custom crank and use valve springs.
Haha genius.
Of course you can already buy a V8 that is done using 2 motorcycle 4 cylinders and a custom crank and crankcase.
or...take a couple of Ducatis and have a Desmo v8-10-12-whatever.... :P

Are pneumatic valve springs still used on F1 hybrid engines which run at lower RPM?
