Although Rosberg was blessed with a dominant car, he made Hamilton sweat bullets for his championship. I just don't get it.

I think you misread that. Bianchi was ranked 8th. Rosberg was ranked 5th.

I do agree with your assessment of Bottas. While he did very well this season, he should not be 4th ahead of Rosberg. I think 1-3 were spot on.


Edit: Here is another article with the complete listing:

Lewis Hamilton has been voted the best driver in the annual Autosport Formula 1 team principals' poll, but Nico Rosberg didn't fare well.

In a secret ballot, 10 team bosses polled their drivers of the season under the 25-18-15-12-10-8-6-4-2-1 scoring system and it is no surprise that Hamilton came out tops having won this year's Drivers' Championship.

The 29-year-old claimed 194 points with Fernando Alonso slotting in behind him despite not winning a race in his final season for Ferrari while Daniel Ricciardo, who tasted success three times in his debut campaign with Red Bull, completed the top three.

Williams' impressive youngster Valtteri Bottas was fourth on the back of six podiums while Hamilton's team-mate Rosberg was surprisingly only fifth despite winning five races and finishing second in the Drivers' standings.

According to Autosport, Caterham were not included in the poll "due to multiple changes of management".

AUTOSPORT TEAM PRINCIPALS' TOP 10 2014

Autosport Team Principals' Top 10 2014
1 Lewis Hamilton (194 points)
2 Fernando Alonso (155 points)
3 Daniel Ricciardo (135 points)
4 Valtteri Bottas (119 points)
5 Nico Rosberg (115 points)
6 Felipe Massa (55 points)
7 Sebastian Vettel (53 points)
8 Jules Bianchi (44 points)
9 Jenson Button (40 points)
10 Daniil Kvyat (28 points)

Looks like the bloodletting at Ferrari may be over.

Hasn't Mercedes already stated that they would leave F1 if F1 reverts to normally aspirated V8s/V10s?

Do you have the article or the source of that statement?

The same threat that Honda used in MotoGP. If they leave then bye,bye. After making the same idiotic statement Honda is still in MotoGP and now back in F-1. Mercedes are essentially wasting millions by throwing their toys out of the pram. This is why F-1 is so screwed up now. It has never has been fair for the smaller teams.

They spent a ton of money developing their engine, I'd be pissed too if I had to throw that all away. The constant rules changes are why the lower-budget teams can't catch up. Over time the performance delta per megadollar shrinks, but annual large rules changes mean those teams are never given that time. Keep the technical regulations the same for 10 years and you'll see much more parity.

Once upon a time, didn't the Formula last for three years before it could be changed? What prompted that to be changed?

There is absolutely no way in hell the engine is changing before 2017. It looks the shortest lived engine formula was the 3.5L era, from 1987 to 1994. However, in 1987 and 1988, 1.5L turbos were still allowed with limited boost. So, the 6 seasons from 1989 to 1994 were in a way, the shortest engine regulation.

Edit: also the 1.5L era of 1961 to 1965 if you wanna go waaaaaay back.
