I learnt many things thank to you.
Before of all, sorry for my English, i'm italian, so i try to do my best.
Personally i loved and i still prefer the 2003-2011 cars, first of all for the estetic. Actual cars are fat and don't seem open wheel cars.
Then, races aren't much exciting now. Since 2013 they were, also with the new cars, but now there isn't much action, especially on street circuits (which now are too many, and me i even prefer them... But i would like an equilibre) and there aren't cautions too.
But i have to admit that now cars are safer, the rollabar is better. So, if this already makes them safer, why did they add all those estetic protections?
This is my opinion guys. I tank you another time because i learnt many things, such as that since 2007 there were Indycar and Champ car, while i always thought there was only Indy. I noticed only now that those cars have been used in Superleague formula then, and the first thing that i think when i see them is: "crash and debris" xD I didn't know they were so unsafe too.

The only real similarity between Indycars and Super Formula is a Dallara chassis. Indycars uses a Honda or Chevy aero kit matched to the engines,while Super Formula also offers different engines but only with a common Dallara aero kit. Also, Super Formula is a bit lighter and less powerful and has slightly less downforce than Indycars road course kits. Also 2007 was the LAST year of of Champ car and Indycars not the first.
