I think for sure not. this means that in 2014 there is no space for big aero gains in 2014 (in which Newey could excel again) only engine/mechanical gains. funny that it came right after Montezemolo crying yet again about "aero this and aero that, we want engines to be dominant factor (because we can't sort out aero)!"...
2013 no DRS in quali also will hamper RBR - again, funny that the rule change came out of the blue, right after ferrari blaming their bad quali pace on (their incompetence to figure out) DRS usage in Q.
might be a coincidence in both cases...but are we allowed to believe in coincidences?
Respectfully, but anyone in this thread that says this does not help(not as if it was done for them as a favor or anything) Red Bull is lying to themselves. This most certainly helps Red Bull(McLaren too)! Who has been the most dominant team since the latest round of major Reg changes? RB. Sure they're changing up some things for FW testing & small changes to the front roll structure but this is no way hurts Red Bull.
In regards to 2014 reg changes & Newey finding other things to exploit, this is simply wrong. The proposed 2014 changes were put in place to reduce both downforce & drag. To help make the Aero on the cars less of a factor. Could Newey have excelled, yes of course. But with the Aerodynamics of the cars being less important with the proposed changes, that would help Ferrari more than RB, as you can see they struggle with Aero now, which is far more complicated. Reducing DF, something Ferrari cars have lacked the last 3 seasons would help them & put more emphasis on the engines & ERS & KERS.
The bottom line is Newey has excelled with the current Regs and we know now they're not changing for a bit. This obviously doesn't hurt the team with the best car and it will allow Newey to continue on with his evolution style he likes. Keeping the regs the same definitely help the teams with the best cars. It gives the teams with lesser cars a chance to catch up, in a sense, but the ones in front will stay in front because there's more to come from this platform.
