At first I thought it is good to have a level playing field but looking at the results here, it is so obvious the diffuser plays a huge part in the performance of the cars and not really the drivers. You have the 'diffuser' teams right at the top and the rest at the bottom. What good can come out of this ? How can it be a level playing field ? It is just an exchange of places from from previous seasons where a couple of teams are fighting for the top positions. It is just like another Michelin vs Bridgestone situation. I want to see a field where everyone stands a chance to be at the top. Now the situation is same as previous seasons where the winners are so predictable.
