We got the best drivers in the world, in the fastest cornering cars ever build, yet they aren't able to closely follow each other because of that downforce.
It's not my intention to be picky or pedantic with your post but the first claim is debatable(how can we know that Dixon, Power or Lotterer, for instance, are worse drivers than say Vettel?!) and the second one is incorrect, as shown here
More to the point, it's tougher to get closely behind but not that impossible. Russia was a bad impression of it, imo. We could see some very nice racing on China and Bahrain. Barcelona will, as always, be impossible to pass but we can't blame solely the new aero for that. I think we'll see some nice racing again when F1 goes to Canada.

RB still in no-man's land (I wonder if Adrian has figured out what Ferrari has done with their sidepods? Sorry....
), Ric in front of Verstappen for a change.
Newey is not to blame. The car is already fast on the corners(you can check it here
), it just lacks power.

If true (new Redbull )The word/rumour is 1 second per lap quicker (based on simulator data).
I am not sure is it enough for podium
I doubt they will improve that much, but if they will, it will be enough to fight for pole and win(as long as Ferrari and Mercedes improves little), imo. Which is why I don't see it happening. But I think RB will be within 0.5s on QLF, if the car is really an "RB14"
