We should not argue about opinion then. This is a technical board. People will get bored by endless opinion arguments.

Its much easier to find a little gain in drag then it is to get it back through the engine in the form of more power.
I do not believe that your doubts over the technical feasibility of limiting downforce are genuine. You always come back to the same points which have been proven wrong before. F1 also limits rpm and no team tries to cheat on this, although it would give a big advantage. So I believe you are splitting hairs in the defence of an opinion. None of us can demonstrate at this point which opinion is true. I do not share your believe that aero would still be the same low hanging fruit once we have a DF limit and stable geometric rules. So there is little point in continuing a debate about the things we believe, same as bhallg2k.
