The strategy aspect has gone too far IHMO.
Drivers dont race, becuse they know they will pit in 2 laps, so there is no need to risk and overtake the guy infront, as HE is on a different strategy, so when he pits... yadda yadda yadda...
Also, it will eliminate the stupid qualifying method we have today, "ahh he is on pole, but how much fuel does he have.."
If he is on pole, that means he is on pole, good job, no questions asked.
We might see some boring races in the beginning, but that will probably change as drivers and teams realize that status quo wont give them anything. They will have to fight, ie RACE!!

If you had this years rules with no refuelling it'd be even more of a procession of cars with very little position changes for the entire race.

But instead of the current pressurized rigs, why not go to fuel rigs powered by gravity? A gravity-fed rig would be much slower, and thus a pit stop would be a major penalty. Since the cars start without enough fuel to finish the race, at one time or another they eventually would have to stop for gas.
Additionally, limit the number of personnel allowed to change tires. Personally, I believe four would be a nice number.
