If the pneumatic pressure can vary the valve return, maybe they can use it as a variable valve timing?
Variable valve timing is banned in F1.

They run a long way from 14:1. Probably in the region of 22:1.
Furthermore, valve timing is set by the cam shafts, not the spring pressure. The pressure must be high enough to always follow the cams. If they float, it’s the end of the engine.
