I loved that idea ever since I heard it from dennis.LoudPipe said:A GP can be very good with no crashes. And if you watch racing for crashes I have one thing to say to you: "you suck" It pisses me off more than anything when I see that someone is trying to cause a car crash say, in a rally on purpose. There's people driving, who have worked hard to get the car built and all their work gets destroyed and their lives put in danger.
Back to F1:
If all the drivers are good (which they are) and all cars are competitive (which they aren't) you'll get good racing. The problem with F1 is that the margins are too small. I say bring back slicks & steel brakes, ban carbon, reduce downforce A LOT, ban all electronic driving aids and you get good racing where the driver's skill matters more that it does now. As you can see from my list the new rules by FIA are partially a step in the right direction IMO.
Circulating the drivers in different cars and artificially watering the track has been proposed, BTW.
In the turbo era they used to have 3-5 boost increases by a press of a button. Any more would result a running out of fuelUltra_Kool_Dude said:Maybe if each driver was given five strong shots of nitrous (nitros) that they could use during the race. That would definately help passing.
Jeremy Clarkson @ Sunday Times said:Nobody is saying, ?Hey, let?s sprinkle water onto one of the corners and see how they cope with that?. And to my certain knowledge nobody is suggesting that each driver has to race while under the influence of a different drug. Imagine that: Schumacher on acid, Coulthard on coke and Raikkonen on grass.
(the horror is that is true)Jeremy Clarkson @ Sunday Times said:Think about it. Every time you find a dark erotic thriller set in Prague on Channel 4, you can be assured it was sponsored by the cr?ateur d?automobiles. Whereas Dale?s Big Cash Holiday Supermarket Price is always brought to you by Rove
