You do not mean that artificially developed media thing 'grollyball' of today do you?
I do not follow it, far to predictable and mind deadeningly boring.
So you are saying that F1 must be restricted by any means, simply to make it a competition between a few privileged drivers?
Are you not forgetting the reason F1 was started in the first place. It was a technological competition originally between nations and then between high technology groups. The drivers were simply the best available to help win, not the main reason. The more you restrict technical development in F1, the more you take away it's reason for existence. The drivers can always race karts with high power. That would be just as much a driving challenge.
I am once again stunned by your seemingly flawless ability to totally miss the point.
The point is there are arbritrary rules for every 'game'. This is what makes said game 'fun'.
Let's take your point further of not restricting it. We now have the technology to allow cars to drive themselves round a track, they would do this flawlessly and much faster than any human possilbly could due to perfect consistency. Why not implement this? Then we can get rid of the driver altogether.
This is the natural conclusion to, its a showcase for technology, and drivers aren't important.
Most technical implementation is for driver saftey, we can make cars that are on the order of seconds (if not tens of seconds if allowed) quicker per lap if given absolute freedom. The problem is no human can handle the car.
Bottom line, the TV masses don't give a --- about the technology, they are;t engineers, people want to se a driver race.
