It seems to be getting reported more and more that the bonus payments to Merc, Ferrari (except for $50m), McLaren, Red Bull and Williams are going to be put into a pot to be distributed among the top 3 finishers over the last 10 years.
What a rubbish development.

I might as well give up on watching F1 if all of that money stays with the top3 teams. It ruins 90% of the fun if you know the pecking order for a few years in advance and you know it's not going to be tight.

I could have expected that the big teams will force the budget cap not to be very restrictive but if prize money structure is also not shifted significantly in favour of midfield, then pretty much nothing changes in the anti-competitive nature of F1 and I'm not enjoying F1 as it is. Too predictable both from race to race and from season to season. The only time I was properly excited with F1 in the last 2 or so years was this year's German GP. I'm skipping the races more and more often these days and if 2021 changes won't satisfy me, I guess I will be mostly done as F1 viewer.
