Give this a week.. Ferrari and Mclaren and the other guys will have their way
It is called engineering. It's part of the sport.
This ebb and flow of new technology and rule changes has been happening for years. McLaren, Ferrari, BMW, do not deserve
to be in the top 3. In fact, no team deserves
to be in the front. You only get to that spot by effort, knowledge, and the ability to apply those perfectly. Sure money and experience can't hurt either.
Williams, BrawnGP, and Toyota have been able to achieve this more than others. Good for them. They found a way to exploit a loophole in the rules, and are doing a great job with it. That's been the case in F1 since the inception of the world championship. If it wasn't, there would be no need for a constructor's championship as well.
You can read this article to better understand how it is that the "diffuser gang" have been able to make the rules work for them.
Diffusers are Legal
