There 2022 engine is a split turbo so they can’t really do that. They wanted to focus everything on that engine and not split resources.. let’s see if it pays off.
The split turbo has never been confirmed. They confirmed they were evaluating it - hence the pic we all saw from Alonso's visit of the dynos - but not they would run it next year.
However the 2022 engine installation can still be different enough to not fit in this year's chassis - even without a split turbo. And even more to the point : they have made evo from last year's PU to this year (minor ones but still) so they can't bring a new version this year. Ferrari had kept several hybrid elements EXACTLY the same as 2020 so that's why they are allowed to upgrade these once in 2021.
