If FIA wanted to attack the largest risk exposure in F1, they's be talking about the open wheels - the single greatest risk exposure. Maybe the Merc W196 (1954) was the way to go? Open wheel cars are cool and historic, but the formula is founded on an antiquated format born from stripping the fenders off production cars to reduce weight - irrelevant today. Silly? Yes. But so is the idea of enclosed cockpits in F1. Either evolve the entire formula by addressing real issues or leave it alone.
