As consistency comes in then processional racing is the result. The more they lock down the rules the more the cars will be the same and the less the sport will be what it was intended to be. Constructors Championship first and driver's championship second. Anyone who gripes about the advantage some teams had at the start of the season as "cheaters" or it being unfair don't understand the sport.
I for one think that the Driver's championship should go to the driver with the most points on the team that wins the constructor's championship. Not the lone dog.
I don't agree with that last bit at all. Drivers are a very important part and if one can make the difference, like, in this scenario where the better team has the better car, but a driver is able to finish higher than both of them while his car is worse, shouldn't that be rewarded?
I do agree with the rest. But, I also want the whole package. For me, F1 is tension, action, but also the highest technology and the best drivers. If there is no overtaking, why watch the race or even qualifying when you have seen the FP's? I'm not a fan of overtaking to the point where it isn't special anymore, like in nascar: "Oh, there's an overtake, oh there's another one, whatever..." but come on, there should be a little more action that a high speed parade. Ofcourse I appreciate the drivers driving on the limit, seeing them work like madmen at times like in Singapore. But there needs to be overtaking. F1 is racing, and racing is fighting for victory. I want that fight to also be on track as in the factories.
