I hope the engines and subsystems of the manufaturers will not differ to much in power output, otherwise we will have the engine dominated formula 1 some are craving for. Just imagine the Ferrari at the end of the grid just because of a --- engine....

And that's a harsh reality of life and limits on safety. Many years ago Formula One cars were the quickest, but they became so quick that safety became an issue, and ever sincethen their performance has been hobbled to a specific performance level. If you took all the limitations off the cars would easily lap any track 5 seconds quicker, but they would also be much more dangerous. So there is a performance ceiling the FIA maintains.
Meanwhile, other formulas have steadily been increasing their performance and lap times with the advent of technology, and they are closing in on Formula One levels of performance. There is a ceiling, and Formula One got to it a long time ago. But now, others are getting close.
The difference? ....

On the other hand, like said, f1 is simply too safe. The likelyhood of a driver even breaking a leg or something is almost zero percent. When was the last time we seen a driver actually get injured in f1? I believe last time was the 2004 US Grand Prix, and that was far from a driver dies.
