Innovations should be hard to come by with the current regs which hopefully means close racing throughout the field. Newey probably found 2011 exciting.

The mercedes is a big disappointment, it just looks a bit 'dumpy' and inelegant. The Sauber looks nice tho and think they are a dark horse this yr, maybe they will surprise and outpace Ferrari in some races and think they will get a win this season

"The devil has very much been in the detail," he said.
Very sharp observation of him, not at all a surprise after all.
But, on the other hand, there has to be a "Deus ex machina" to take the fight with that devil. His name is Adrian Newey.

Newey is right again. Just remember the last big changes of the rules back in 2009. One year ahead, in 2008, Ferrari and McLaren developed intensivily their cars until the last race, so did Renault too in order to demonstrate to Alonso and the world that they still knew to win races and fight with the very best.BMW Sauber stopped their development in the last quarter of the season but was still very focused on Kubica's title assault, and Adrian Newey was focused on adapting his aerodynamics with the strong Ferrari engine, in the Toro Rosso of Sebastian Vettel. And come 2009 and all of this teams paid a heavy price. Brawn GP, Toyota, Williams and even Force India made very good steps forward, and Newey's chassis was quite unsuitable to the Ferrari engine and electronics, but was very compatible to the Renault ones.
