Hasn't racing turned into a sad spectacle where a driver is more concerned about his tyres, which have been engineer to degrade quicker than usual, than he is about overtaking, then there's the lack of innovation brought about a team FIA because a team might make something the lower teams can't afford to do.

Is this really F1 the pinnacle of technology that I used to watch 20 years ago???

This is meant to be racing at the highest level.

Fiddlesticks..
Vettle was the fastest driver on the track
Sundry. Hell they had to slow the boy down. Embarrassing
watching him run away like that..Yes he did!

Who disagreed with having the tires last the whole race?

Only someone that their favorite driver can only score if others blow pitstops or strategy...

The tyres suck, and they actually degrade the racing by adding an artificial management metric to the equation.
