Some good thought processes i feel... some space to breath, recoup from this ongoing mess. Its good we'll see these latest cars for at least 2 years, with all the downforce gained.

On the other hand..

Doubt about SIGNIFICANT cost saving, teams will just find another loophole. Am I in favour of capped cost budget. No. Teams need to explore their limits, it's beneficial in some ways... Up to the smaller teams to attract donors/sponsorship, or their governtment funding them... or something. a Waste of Resources I feel

Absolutely. False flag economy, that's how I think about it. I do recall late Sergio admitting once, and he was someone who had all factual data, that all that hoopla over "saving" changes imposed upon teams, in his case Ferrari, did not save them a single €, yet I think quality of racing degraded because of those regulatory restrictions.

McLaren is almost certainly in minor challenge. They need different chassis due to changes in interfacing with Mercedes engine next year. For now, as we know, they mount Renault. There is however talk that teams are suppose to carry over current chassis for one more year.

The teams must shut down factories until end of April, if I am not mistaken. Problem for rest of us is, that we do not know where the Ferrari is today. I was hoping to learn more in Melbourne.

Sandbagging? Are they slow because of problems with PU, or do they have problems with chassis? Who really knows but guys on the inside. Only what is clear to all, that whatever they learned in February, and lunched countermeasures, that effort is on hold until people return to work.

On the other hand, I have feeling that Brawn has placed a plan in motion which will exclude some teams from racing for a while. You figure out if Ferrari is IN or OUT. Rumor has it that F1 management are considering only 12 cars on the track.  

EU is on lockdown, life came to standstill. Any racing around here seems just fantasy right now.

Mandatory freeze on use of wind-tunnel for all teams until 2021 (next generation of cars).

This must be probably because faulty design, sick car and imperfection is beautiful these days in eyes of regulators. When I was young, it was the other way around.
