If Hamilton had dominated or if Rosberg was any less of a driver like one of Schumacher's other team mates F1 would have been in a serious crisis. Too much of a domination by a team is never great for a sport, Merc domination with CLK_GTR killed a sport Porsche 917 too killed a sport.SectorOne wrote: It´s not gonna change much whether they were allowed or not.
I think it´s better for them to have a frozen formula. Modify it year by year in a "cheap" controlled environment rather then going all out and being out-spent by the Mercedes powerhouse.
Covered is not word I'd choose.
It is the worst year since the Schumacher years.
F1 only pays prize money by constructors ....That is, by it's own admission, it's highest Prize. That title has not been in doubt since Australia(the whole season).
They keep talking about making F1 better...oh the PUs don't make enough noise, it's too complicated it's this it's that. They fail to see that F1 is a sport and a sport relies on Competition.
Since the only teams with a real chance at winning are the "works" teams, removing a chance to improve the engine robs them of the chance to catchup. All the other teams are just about regulated into the "also ran"category anyways.
