Can someone please start a thread on the new F1 season so we can discuss the changes, really excited about the season now after watching the opener!
The best driver in the best car in the best team will, barring incidents, usually win whatever the rules are. But my point is that drivers are not free to drive at the best of their abilities. How many times have we heard Lewis Hamilton being told to slow down to conserve his tyres? His replies not suitable for public consumption! It's easy to overtake someone on a straight when you suddenly find you have another 10-15 mph in hand, and then be re-passed next time round when the boot is on the other foot. Unfortunately F1 is modelled for the viewing masses to enjoy. Shame really.I get the DRS, fuel and tyre options as it's all about overtaking that makes racing, last year was a little too dominated by RedBull as you knew once Vettle started and led the first lap he would go on to win the race and with no one getting close to attempt an overtake makes for a boring race
I think they need more noise from the cars or people will lose a little interest
