The last couple of days I have been watching season reviews from the 80's, and it reminded me how entertaining it was. It's the combinations of a lot of things that makes it fun to watch and makes me admire the drivers even more then the drivers of today. For example,they had fast tracks like old Hockenheim, Jarama, Buenos Aires, Kyalami and so on, and there was a lack of downforce on the cars. The tracks where 'spectators' tracks, as the fast tracks and low downforce ment lots of overtaking and it raised the most talented and bravest drivers. Most of the tracks allowed different driving lines, meaning overtaking was easier, which you barely will experience on todays tracks, except maybe Spa. Todays tracks are 'drivers' tracks, in my opinion. A combination of Herman Tilkes' track design and Pirellis marble pile up, the tracks only allows one line which produces less overtakes, which by the way is artificially boosted by KERS and DRS. When I watch an onboard video, or driving my self (PC) on any of Tilkes track, I truly think that they are great 'qualifying' tracks but not so great race tracks. Don't get me wrong, I REALLY enjoy F1 this year! It's is really exciting and there's lots of action in every race, but I can't help getting the feeling that the winner is just a guy being at the right place at the right time. 6 races, 6 different winners and it's all down to, the tyres, DRS and the weather. I would wish we could eliminate any 'driving aid' and make the racing be about... RACING. Ayrton Senna said, that the best racing experience he ever had was when he was doing karting, because it was all about racing. There was no politics or money involved, just drivers and machines. Ever since Williams introduced active suspension and tc in 1991, the competitiveness has plummeted untill recently when Pirelli joined F1 again, because of electronic aid. So here is my fantasy rulebook about how to make F1 more exciting and more pure racing. Wide tracks with long and fast corners Less downforce combined with no.1 will slow down the speed in F1, but requires more skills and cojones of the drivers. Bring back H-shifters. All in all, make the cars more mechanical and less electronic These are my silly (and a bit nostalgic) thoughts. What do you guys think? Do you agree with me or do you think that am I an old fart that just need to keep up with the times and let the 80's be 80's? Come up with your ideas of how to crown the champion based on his skills. English is my second language, so sorry for any grammar flaws.
