Maybe there's more to the Peugeots engine failures than current information suggest. On Wurz's car the engine failure happened on the track but yet he drove back to the pits. All three seem to have identical indications after the "blow ups", rocket like flames from the right exhaust. If an engine "blows up" (as many have said) I've never seen one being able to drive back to the pits. However, if it's a turbocharger failure, like the "rocket like" flames would indicate, then the engine would still run but with much less power. If the problem turns out to be a turbo, then it would be interesting to know what make it was and or did Peugeot change something in the installation.
