TalentFan, I think you're 100% right. It's the constant hunting for a setup which requires dedicated teams of technicians and hours on track. Electronics should be almost' homologated at the beginning of the year with a choice of perhaps 5 maps, and the team can only use those all season- with the option to review the maps after 6 races. Monsoon, rain, low grip, full grip, qualifying? Ban GPS and active suspension, setup should come from linkages, springs, dampers and swingarms. They'll still be a million combinations when you take gearing, ride height etc into account but electronics shouldn't be what they are now. If you can buy a BMW/Aprillia/Ducati for 15,000 GBP with TC and anti-wheelie it's criminal that an ECU is anymore than 25,000GBP. Simple and effective, please.
