Some of your toughts make no sense.
First of all, most of my thoughts make no sense, so ha!
V8s, we're already using them, and it's an outdated/obsolete architecture.
My error, I meant V10's, but this is a minor option anyway.
Williams, they have no major manufacturer behind them so they won't win ever again (185 millions won't get any championship). They blew their (last) chance with BMW, now let them suffer.
That's probably true, but if you'd considered my post properly, you'd realise I said 'I know some will never happen, and couldn't happen, but if they did F1 would be amazing again'. Does that sound familiar?
Less aero - really why are people so retarded not to understand that its not the downforce that's the problem but how its produced ?!
We have slower car and less overtaking BECAUSE we have LESS AERO DOWNFORCE today than in previous years, due to the modifications to the front wing and rear diffuser.
So this retarded thinking is what reduced overtaking in the first place, because aero downforce has been reduced.
If we continue like this we'll have even slower cars and even less overtaking. Champ Car has the right solution
and so does GP2 (witch is based on 2002 F1 cars somewhat), meaning they both have more/considerably more ground effects downforce of total downforce as opposed to F1 cars. And that's why they have overtaking.
Can I state for the record that I am not a retard, at least I don't think I am, and since I am capable of that much thought I have come to the conclusion that I am not.
I don't care whether it's the aero downforce itself, how it's produced, front wings, rear diffusers or Nick Fry's smile that makes a modern grand prix car incapable of following another, I just want more overtaking - and less of those stupid little winglet things - is that too much to ask?
I don't understand how you can say we have less overtaking because we have less aero downforce, we have more aero downforce these days and that is precisely why there is less overtaking. Remember years ago when we didn't have all those winglet's and there was overtaking?
Aero has increased, overtaking has decreased, I'll leave you to do the maths!
And why should cars be slowed down, this is F1 and cars should go faster every year.
I don't want to slow the cars down, I want there to be actual racing in every race throughout the field...
Perhaps you are more concerned with tech than entertainment, this is not my view...
