I've always wondered if a simple shakeup of the calendar would assist this.
Some tracks favour certain cars, sometimes predictable year on year. So having them in different slots might allow different teams to thrive at different parts of the season than we expect.
Obviously weather and logistics dictate, but I can think of at least a quarter of the season that could easily swap if nothing more than nostalgic positions.
Heck, the weather changes might actually be good for a shakeup too. Easter Silverstone anyone? September Barcelona? Early summer Melbourne finale?
Ultimately a good car will always win in the end. But at least thr above magicians trick would feel less induced than the likes of double points at the last race.
I think extending points to all finishers should be added too. The likes of Russell would be racking up loads for consistency versus a lucky one off 8th by a rogue Haas that crashes 5 out of 4 weekends a month.
