To me the damage done by Ferrari staying in the sport with the unfair revenue distribution system and the overpriced engines and silly aero is much greater than Ferrari's exit resulting in significant changes in these areas within the sport.

So Ferrari these are the new rules, stay or go, your choice!

Likewise for Mercedes.
I would also like to see Renault, Williams, Red Bull, McLaren and perhaps Haas thrown out and then we can watch lots of victories for pink painted cars

Yes, because those are the manufacturers that keep threatening to leave the sport if they don't get what they want, right? Jesus Christ, what is wrong with you?!

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport The Ferrari of 2018 will have 60 mm more of basewheel and the Mercedes W09 will have 100mm less of that.
Then the base wheels of both cars will be very close.

There was this article that was quite interesting in the difference in the wheelbases of the cars and the reasoning.

Formula One needs Ferrari far more than the reverse. It is the most successful team and has employed more charismatic and talented drivers than any other team. It builds its own cars and in the days of garagiste teams was one of the very few to build engine chassis and gearbox . It also builds the most desired , and , in most respects , the best sports cars in the world , and has done for decades (we'll draw a veil over the 348 perhaps ) .

But far, far , more importantly they polarise opinion like nobody else. Every pantomime needs its prancing horse and/or villain ...

And Kimi bleeding Raikkonen more important than Ascari? Of course he is - if you are twelve ....
