For all of Marko's whining the fact remains that Merc are just doing a much, much, much better job than everyone else. And the fact that they have changed the rules in a big way TWICE now has just helped entrench them.
We must not forget that it was RBR who pushed the aero-heavy 2017-18 rule set because F1 was too much of an "engine formula", only to be overtaken by Ferrari. Toto says it best:
Mercedes F1 boss Toto Wolff said changing the rules might not have the outcome some would like.
"The default reaction in the past when big teams were running away was to change the [regulations] in the hope people will catch up," he said.
"The opposite is the case. If you leave regulations alone, eventually performance will converge."
Changes were made to the front wing rules and tyre construction for this season with the intention of making the racing better, but the effect has been the opposite because Mercedes have adapted better and dominated the season.
Wolff said: "As in the past, teams lobby for change because they believe rolling the dice can be an advantage for them. In 2019, none of that has happened. So we are back to square one.
"We are making that mistake over and over again but it is very difficult from our position to be credible and be heard because people believe we want to maintain the rules as they are to maintain our advantage."
