I'm sorry to be the one to say this, but F1 is still going to be F1, and the lot of us are still going to watch it despite the new regs. Who knows, maybe there will be more viewers because of the new regs. I, for one, think we'll see a closer field, but I think we'll also see more disparity. To "un-confuse" you, what I'm saying is that (I personally think) we'll see Ferrari, McLaren, Honda, BMW, and Toyota, with their vast resources, be in the championship battle [they should be better suited to cope with the changes]. But then teams like Williams (unfortunately), FI, Red Bull, and (whatever becomes of) Toro Rosso will be way behind. In other words, I think the battle between the teams with great resources (Ferrari, McLaren, Honda, Toyota, BMW) will be very close, and then there will be a big drop-off of performance.
p.s. On this 2009 topic, I just want to say that we know Ferrari was the first to test in the wind tunnel, and at a Barcelona test a while back Schumacher was testing a Ferrari with no winglets/flip-ups/etc. Without causing an argument (please!), I was wondering what all of you, every single one of you, think about which teams will do well next year. From the member who has 7 posts to the member who has 700 posts, I know for sure that you all have an opinion on 2009, so please express!
