@mean gene, you could not have put it better. Also a former big fan of F1-since the 80's, I've seen my favorite motorsport goint into decline as a racing spectacle, the addition of superfluous electronics and mindless regulations by the fia Jtodt and their pseudo green movement. F1 used to be about all out racing, overtaking on the track, not this humiliating and stupid pit-stop racing that the FIA legislated into existence. Add to that a complete disregard for fans and for the classic F1 venues which made F1 the pinnacle of motorsport until around 1999. Seb is a great driver but the 2011 season was the most boring and predictable of entire F1 history

Because we, the spectators let it descend into this. We have watched F1 be crippled by over regulation, over interference, over money grabbing. Watched our tracks be taken over by the couch potatoe populous with their 50" TV's and armchair expertise in a sport they know nothing of. TV has no sound bar the sanitised buzz of passing cars, no smell of oil (Castrol R....Ahhhhhhh), rubber or superheated engines, no following lap sheets and times to keep track of the race, no sense of speed or drama as a car passes mere feet from you going round hairpins or through esses we can't comprehend on TV. We abandonded our tracks for the comfort of our homes and we ask "what has happened to our sport". We have happened to our sport my friend.

I have been watching F1 since the 60's mate and we were bitching about overtaking even then. From what I recall the 80's were no better, Senna & Prost had to resort to ramming each other!

The answer is eliminate all artificially induced 'downforce' allow cars to follow each other through corners which they will be travelling slower through so run off areas will be reduced, attracting spectators back to the sport and increasing driver safety.

Seemples!

If you really want to make it fun allow any engine configuration and make sure the tracks are not Herr Hermann Tilke designed. The old UK tracks, Brands, Oulton etc. where the cars have to suit the track, not the other way round, are challenges not dead certs.

The race will go on with plenty crying about what should have been! U.S. politics combined with Bernie"tics" is a recipe for controversy and deception. F1 is F1 !
Bring it on!
