Shooting themselves in the diffuser

Ferrari’s lawyer made two very strange arguments on Tuesday, and this may in some way account for why they lost the case. First of all, he attacked Ross Brawn personally. A bizarre strategy, seeing that it was Brawn who had helped Ferrari to their recent dominance. Secondly, the lawyer argued that if the diffuser was made legal, it would make Formula 1 a two-tier sport, with a few teams at the front and everyone else trying to catch them up. Isn’t this exactly what Formula 1 is? Ferrari and McLaren at the front and everyone hoping one of them breaks down. The only difference this year is that it’s not Ferrari and McLaren, and that the teams dominating this year do so perhaps not by financial backing, but engineering innovation. Surely this is a better formula?
