lus1:Its really not the circuits fault at all...
I mean take Silverstone, every year in F1 its, to say the least, a very processional GP. But, when you look at say the smaller classes of racing you see passes at every corner and maybe 5 or 6 passes a lap. Yes I know what your thinking, who cares about smaller classes? But actually, from them we realise these tracks are not the problem with lack of overtaking in F1, its the cars themselves.
Its not even the speed that creates a difficulty to overtake, as we see in the slightly slower classes like GP2 or Formula 3 etc. that speed does not result in a lack of overtaking. It is the aerodynamical aspect of Formula 1 and the technical side of Formula One that is a real let down. Commentators get absolutely overjoyed when somebody actually manages to overtakes someone on track, which really proves that Formula One is in fact...boring when it comes to overtaking. If the pitstops are the only means of the change in the lead then where's the fun in that?
Personally if we get rid of all this "double diffuser" and "KERS" rubbish and focus on the drivers and their talent rather than the car itself.
