Once again, by accounts almost all the drivers were calling for changes not just Mercedes. Understandably the sport listened to those who have to endure the cars (as well as consulted doctors) and reacted.
That said, I think it's really quite difficult to understand if the changes have ruined the ability to dice in race trim or if it's just the development of the teams and their understanding of the regulations which is subverting the intention with clever aerodynamics.
It's likely a combination of both however the sport should really take some time to understand this as it's a shame - The first half of 2021 had fabulously competitive racing and it produced fun battles all the way through the field from my recollection.
