It is quite clear to me that the reason for the Red Bull dominance is not any kind of aerodynamic advantage but an engine power advantage. Vettel is easiy able to gain distance in a straight line at relatively low speeds which obviously has nothing to do with how it sticks to the road around corners. I expect their dominance to remain unchanged as a result of these rule changes.

I predict that Vettel will be on pole by 1.6s over 2nd place.

I think the hot blown diffusors are going to drop off much more sharply than the RBR cold blown one.

LRGP may be the dark horse here, and move directly to second behind RBR in qualifying!

Can't say that I'm comfortable with all these mid-season rule changes. Would they be so quick to change if it was Ferrari dominating and not a drink company?

Nobody ever wants to play with the kid who makes the rules up as he goes.
