The F1 engines don't use an electric supercharger though. It is a turbo with an electric motor/ generator unit in the middle. The big improvement in efficiency being the generator. It harvests all of the energy in the exhaust. The turbine makes boost first. And once that is fulfilled, the remainder is converted to electricity. Rather than wasting it through a gate and out the pipe.
