During that period, F1 officials did intervene to try and curb how dominant Mercedes were over the rest of the field, bringing in measures such as banning their interconnected suspension system in the early days of the hybrid era.
Now, Domenicali has refused to entertain the idea that they might be planning something to level the playing field moving into the future, suggesting excellence needs to be appreciated.
"I think if you look back at the dominance of a driver or a team, it's always been a part of F1," he told Channel 4.
"We need to consider one thing that for sure Max Verstappen has done and is doing an incredible job. We need to recognise that.
"But if you see today at the gaps in qualified, it's just incredible. If you look at the numbers of overtaking we are having the last two seasons, we are at the top of the scale.
"We cannot be seen as a sport that is trying to do something against someone, that would be wrong."
