I'm not the least surprised that using exhaust flow to aid the aero continues. The only way the FIA could stop the engineers from attempting to use the flow would be to require the exhaust header to continue beyond the bodywork and spoilers, and that may not be enough. If I recall hasn't the mapping that made the blown exhaust so effective been banned this year along with the exhaust placement? The lose of the ability to add all that flow in the corners should reduce the effect of any exhaust placement/routing gains for the most part, but as we all should know this is a game of hundredths of seconds per hour or per lap. Really the tech and engineering battles are more interesting than the racing the last couple of years. I still think the FIA should specify a length, width, height, maximum displacement, and minimum acceptable safety standard and let them go at it. Just a thought Dave
