Might not even be that hurtfull to merc, in fact, might even make them more dominant as they can stop using up some of its engine life (knock problems, high wear) From the qualy mode and spread that out during the whole race.
IMO, its a good chance this is what will happen. Thus in the end all the engine manufactures will have done, is spent a lot of money to develop new mappings, and make the FIA feel good about itself.
The race for engine development would still be on. And it would make qualy closer so more tense and more occasional shake ups. The difference would still be there, just not that extreme.
Merc will not always have a full second in hand, like last weekend, but that is also a bit weird. Both Bottas and Hamilton could make a major mistake costing them 0,6 of a second and they would still be easily P1 and P2 as it stands now.
