It looks like BMW, and/or new engineering blood is

If the chassis is bad enough, the may have to run extra downforce, which makes the engine "look bad."
I'm thinging the Michelin thing last year really hurt Williams: it's almost like their engineering decisions assumed X from Michelin and the FIA ruling forced Michelin to change X to Y- and Williams has not been able to compensate.
