It's not quite mindless - though OP should have at least posted a link to the relevant article.

"If I am a visionary for F1, I would make the cars ever safer, but I would than make them way faster," Wurz told Motorsport.com.
"But I talk of way faster, because we can make cars which go 450 [km/h] and have way more downforce. We can then, when the cars are safer, race on the most extreme race tracks, city tracks."
Wurz, who this year lobbied for the 2017 introduction of the Halo cockpit protection before it was ultimately delayed to 2018, believes that a further safety push could allow F1 to do away with a number of current rules and features that make the championship less exciting for its fans.
"We wouldn't need miles of run-off areas, so we wouldn't have the infringements which nobody understands anymore," he continued.
"The sole underlying aspect is that the fan at home needs to sit and think: 'I could never do that. Only the most courageous, talented drivers can do that.'
From my point of view, it was through a relentless push for higher and higher speeds that F1 made a name for itself. At its zenith, it wasn't just the quickest series on the planet, it was the quickest series on the planet by a country mile. I'd love to see that spirit revived.
Venturi floors for "cheap" downforce, active aero for intelligent downforce, wheel fairings and closed cockpits to reduce drag and bolster safety, reduced weight (including refueling), proper tires, automated electronics and/or two-way telemetry to simplify the non-essential aspects of driving...make F1 exotic again!
