Someone school me on this topic please:
is it not true (or was) teams bypass the turbine entirely in qualifying by opening the wastegates and running turbo solely off of mgu-h, thus reducing pack pressure and gaining a bit of power? There was talk about this in past numerous times and we even had newey talking on the issue sometime before the season started about sound perhaps being louder in qualifying when people run open wastegates.
Or am I just not getting it
That's the going theory. In quali rather than a turbo v6, its an electrically supercharged v6.
