I don't know of any rules that would prevent that.
But given how fragile the MGU-H can be I doubt anyone would comprise it for any pressure changing controlled leakage.
Another thing to take into account is that as the turbo pressure goes up leakage would go down because of the pressure differential.
Unless you had some dedicated oil pump just for the turbo that increased pressure to match the turbo output pressure.
But you would also need a way to increase the flow as rpm went up... or you would get less benefit from this "leak" ass rpm increased.
More bogus F1 fantasy (the article that is not your post).
I forgot about air pressure within a turbo
Did Ferrari give up on split turbo and went with MGU-H, compressor, turbine arrangement?
Then they would have to have seal between compressor and MGU-H and this seal would not be subjected to compressor air pressure, only ambient pressure?
Am I reaching to far?
