what sets F1 apart from other racing series is that it really is a team sport. From the driver to the pit crew, mechanics, engineers, strategy directors, all of them can make the difference between winning and losing.
I don't like that they're making the cars more and more standard. same components in many places. Limited components in other places. Single tire provider, only 4 'power units' per season. I understand the needs for cost cutting in F1, but eventually the sport will take it one cut too far, and I'll lose interest. I won't be alone.
Fernando Alonso is ready to walk away from the sport. Did he go to McLaren so he could drive a car like any other, or did he go to McLaren because they were promising to take chances, to build a car that was different? McLaren got it wrong,and it's difficult to change with the current rules. Locking it down further like RBR wants is hardly going to appeal to top drivers.
