My understanding is there is a lot more trickery that could be incorporated if the rules were dictated as throttle position vs power output, one of those being traction control.
"the power unit must achieve the torque demand by the FIA approved software".
With the FIA approved software having to be used, cheating and drivers aids isn't possible. and traction control is regarded as a driver's aid by the FIA.
I really don’t think anyone is disputing that, I certainly am not. Those are the rules as written in 2019. You keep contending that the ICE throttle(s) are mandated to be in direct relation to the accelerator pedal like they were in past rules, then provide no current rules which stipulate such. Instead you try to steer the discussion all around the place seemingly to stir the pot. Have you backed away from that opinion of yours regarding the ICE throttles? The articles you quoted are exactly why the torque delivered is what is mandated and not the ICE throttle position.
In a formula 1 power unit exactly in the ICE/engine the throttle’s/butterflies opening/closing position certainly have a relationship to the driver accelerator pedal operating position. Except for the exceptions of downshift, pit-lane speed limiter, anti-stall and end of straight limiter strategy. Teams having to use the mandated standard FIA approved ECU and software are certainly limited as to the use and capabilities of the power unit/ICE/engine software compared to what is used on a modern road going car.
Relationship in the travel (closed-to-open, a travel of 0-100) of the power unit/ICE/engine throttle/s/butterflies and driver accelerator pedal travel (0-100) exists because when the driver presses the accelerator pedal he is demanding more speed, more power and torque. Torque/power and power unit/ICE/engine RPM being the measured quantities of power unit/ICE/engine output or better say torque/power and speed (power unit/ICE/engine RPM being inversely proportional with each other, when accelerator pedal is being pressed more power unit/ICE/engine RPM is being demanded, proportionately opening throttles increases power unit/ICE/engine RPM.
