FIA rules on diffusers

I've already said everything I have to say about the diffuser issue.

I'm ECSTATIC that the FIA ruling has finally come down on the side of common sense. This does little for "cost saving" - but oh well. Plenty of really smart and talented people get to work overtime redesigning cars this year. We get to see some big money and big talent struggle to keep up, which will serve to flush out any weak links in their respective chains and really show us what all that money is good for.

It's like a cataclysmic asteroid hitting a planet: kinda sucks until the new equilibrium is established, but it's anyone's game while the whole system is shaken up.

More New Rule Changes for F1

The FIA has changed the rules for winning a championship. The driver with the most race wins gets the championship, ties decided by points. This is basically a flip from the former system based on points and ties decided by victories. The constructor’s championship still works strictly on points. I feel mixed about this.
