Scarbs said he isn't saying
Well, I mentioned this already several times last season: From the concept the split turbo is 15% more efficient than the normal turbo.
So either I am right with everyone now on split or I am still very puzzled how they can find this power.
The power isn't related to the split turbo, it's related to their combustion process. The split turbo just allows for extremely efficient packaging (which benefits the dynamics), as well as a small turbo efficiency benefit.
No, not in reality in an F1 car. The car is always to some degree cooling limited in all parts. Here the issue is charge air cooler. With the split turbo the charge air is much colder with still a smaller intercooler.
So you are right, it is packing, but in the end the intercooler is limited in packing and going into it with colder air (hot exhaust side in the back!) is giving you more power.
The bigger point is the exhaust: You release straight to the back with much better routing and a shorter pipe, which generates simply more efficiency.
