It was a great GP. Vettel owned it and was completely untouchable. Great show from him.
The real issue now is the politics, since stuff is just not going away and of course media live for this sort of thing since they can actually have a prayer of selling ads if they have eyes viewing.
There is IMO no question that current costs are almost scandalous, with some teams spending more money per season that some countries spend on education. That doesn't mean that the money "saved" by Draconian rule changes would be used to save the unicorns or fund space exploration; it'd either be invested in incomprehensible transactions at some tax haven or used for other motorsport actvities etc. so this isn't really about a moral issue regarding the money. It's more about what the series as a whole really is, and who it is intended "for." The teams? The owners? The sanctioning body? TV? The fans? I have no idea.
