In the past, I took no more than passing interest in F1, but since starting sim-racing, I've been following it more and more, although there are frustrating parts to it. The main one being the fact that the playing field is not level. In no other sport is unfair advantages to certain teams allowed and every effort is made to ensure that. Obviously F1 is different in that it's car manufacturers sponsoring the whole thing and the quest for technological advantage is somewhat part of the competition, but unfortunately that means as a viewing spectacle it's not that interesting, when the only question is whether it's going to be Rosberg or Hamilton who win. What I want as the viewer is to know who is the best driver? The way things are, this is impossible to know, I mean maybe Markus Erikson would be crushing souls if everyone was forced to drive the same car, we really don't know who is the best in the field, which is a very strange circumstance for any sport. It must truly suck for anyone in the slower cars to know that showing the best skill in the world will never overcome mercedes. So I would be interested to know if you think every effort should be made to make it a level playing field, and if you do, what are your ideas to achieve this without compromising other aspects of the sport? As a simple example, what about adding weight ballast to the car according to your standings in the championship? I'm sure some sort of formula could be worked out that would mean the 1st place driver has weight added that means his lap times would be much closer to the 10th place driver. No doubt numerous problems would emerge with this kind of system, but at least it would be a start in (imo) the right direction.
