Have all the components been used above their capabilities to squeeze too much performance or the CE was causing issues to the other components and they had to change the control logics in order to avoid breaking other ICEs and turbos?
Only one ICE broke, PU2. It was likely broken by the overheating in Barcelona which broke the turbo and mguh. When the PU2 broke then in Baku, the valve stuff broke the new turbo.
It has nothing to do with keeping up with RedBull. When the engine broke in Barcelona Leclerc was on his way to dominating the GP by 20+ seconds, every engine was overheating that weekend, probably they made a mistake with temp sensors or somesuch.
The CE is just an extra CE, just in case, why not take an extra one of that as well?
