Is F1 really a sport at all when it has become virtually impossible for two well-matched cars to pass on the circuit? Real competition today is limited to technical superiority, refuelling strategy, solid pit-work and providing biting comments for the press. I really want the sport to be back on the track.
Instead of ad nauseam discussion, I plead for new rules in 1996 that will result in close racing, overtaking attempts and, dare I say it, lead changes. Otherwise I will stay at home, watch the first two laps on TV and then go to sleep knowing nothing exciting will happen. Why not require every circuit to widen the track at one or preferably two turns to provide good overtaking opportunities? The cost could be offset by a new spectator stand for increased sales to people like me.
Has anyone got a better idea?
