Why did the FIA place the restriction that there may be only 1 injector per cylinder?
It makes it very difficult to have different A/F ratios in the pre-chamber and the combustion chamber. To what purpose? Where is the injector - in the pre-chamber or in the combustion chamber? Do you believe all four manufacturers have the injector similarly positioned?
If it was easy everyone would do it, f1 is about pushing engineering to the limits.
I can't think of a bigger challenge than designing one direct injector that does the job of both port and DI. Not to mention the combustion chamber to go along with it.
As far as using springs over pneumatic system, it may add more friction, but @13,000rpm max, valve float shouldn't be an issue. Not to mention the pneumatic system adds weight and complexity, and is less reliable than a properly matched spring.
