All the major teams seem to have:
-overestimated the advantage KERS would give,
-underestimated the disadvantage KERS caused for weight distribution,
-completely missed the DDD boat.
Getting onto that boat fixed 2 of 3 and only lost you 1, which obviously wasn't overly good to start with.

KERS was much more relevant to their marketing strategy, as seen by the branding used on the cars during the season (Efficient Dynamics/Connected Drive).
If they won the championship (as they planned..!), it would have been a marketing coup for their road division to lever off.
