This reminds me of the MS days. I had no problems with that cos I am a Ferrari fan but I guess for a lot of people those years when the red cars dominated it wasn't exactly fun to watch, where every race is like "will MS fly away from the start, or will he just win by a little?"
The field was too separated back then. But now that is not the case. BUT some of us are still complaining about races boring us to death (or to sleep, as happened to me a few times this season). The most important reason, I think, is that passing using pit strategy pays off much better than wheel-to-wheel racing in F1 today. Teams and drivers don't want to risk anything and face a tough time when they could take a better approach and mount a challenge over the pits. So if you are somehow stuck behind a slower car in a race, just wait for the pits.
Question - How do we make passing over the pits LESS rewarding? Is the ban on refuelling this answer?

front wing damage or a change of tyres.
Great point!!! I wish they ban like the wheel covers and the ultra-wide front wings so at least that will take away a little bit of the headache.
