Not that they can't understand, but that the topic is complex and generally they don't have the technical skills or time to extract and analyse the information themselves. For most of us, the primary method is to rely upon someone else to do that analysis for us and provide some type of aggregated and (hopefully) informed opinion.
while i dont think you are wrong in this, im also not sure that overtly technical answers yield any better explanations then the more easily observable metrics....just longer ones really.

anyways, 3 Honda powered cars in the points and 1 just outside and only 1 Renault powered car despite their upgrade.

I think the real problem is that while we are not yet at power unit parity, it is much closer than people suspect. So its hard to extract and measure the difference on something that is both part of a larger puzzle and likely to have smallish measurable differences. That seems like a bold statement given the real dominance of the Mercedes power unit, but these days I attribute the Mercedes dominance to factors beyond than that of "just" their power unit (which is still the best). Mercedes has taken strength to build more strength and has moved on to crush opposition on all fronts.
