The Driver adjustable bodywork rule sounds like something out of the new version of Deathrace 2000. All this activate and deactivate stuff sounds crazy.

I agree, all these get out of jail free cards are rubbish. I want to see drivers tackling forces and concentration, not switching superhero aids on and off. KERS is just as bad - unless its energy saving is fed back all the time it's got nothing to do with energy conservation and everything to do with desperate attempts to sex up a classic sport to its detriment.

Do not like this adjustable bodywork rule. It is to vaig to understand at this point. Guess the F duct will be back now, at least it seems to imply this. And the 107% rule. what do the FIA think? that the backmarkers are sandbagging? Not likely, but could hurt those who get gridded back due to crashes or fines imposed. Adjustable bodywork, give me a break FIA. If you guys want more passing just watch Indy Racing and you will catch on. Push to pass is the way to go not adjustable bodywork..

movable bodywork and kers waste of time get rid of both just make both wings smaller as that will reduce the aero dynamics and make the designers design more mechanical grip which WILL be better anyway then cars will be able to get closer in corners as they will be slower look at indy cars to see how close they run and thats without all this cr** they are putting into f1 making it more complicated than is needed also do away with tyre warmers

Folks who are not aware, push to pass only involves more petrol inducted creating more horses. Champ Car came up with it first and involved more pressure from the turbo. Champ also started the soft, hard tire compounds. Give these F1 cars less cubic inches and a turbo and less wing and you will see passing. But, although Indy Car is set up as a level playing ground, the big monied teams tend to win most races. But passing is the game there, not follow the leader to get a couple of points. 'Mickey mouse' rules they are yank.
