There are enough other series that could be test bed for road car technology. I was always puzzled by the notion that F1 need to be road cars relevant. This may be the politically correct thing to say, but I think F1 should be kept as the most technologically advanced sport.
I agree 100 percent, unfortunately to be the most technicaly advanced F1 can no longer rely on straining more power from obsolete ic engines at the expense of fuel used, or by pretending to be an upside down formula for aircraft.
