Webber has been quoted many times bemoaning the loss of refueling, so has hamilton.
I don't find the full tanks exiting. In fact none of the races this year was blazing fast. Tenths of a second per lap didn't matter this year, as half way through you know the result 90% of the time.
If you had refueling, you could expect a game changer any time in the race, 10% in or 95% in the race.

Wait for DRS,

Used to be:
Strategy in pits,
Pure racing, trying to be faster and faster every lap (not taking care of tyres)
Battles which lasted more than 3 laps (now due to DRS they last less than 3 laps)
Yes there may be more overtakes, but as ringo said, they have been cold blooded, strategic and no purity to it, and the overtakes have not been as interesting, its more interesting to see people out-braking into corners than sailing past in a DRS zone IMO.
I say: bring back refueling, make tyres that last, allow teams to have as many engines as they would like, scrap DRS, bring back proper racing!
N12ck wrote:all im saying is scrap DRS, scrap Tyres that go off if you actually try to do a fast laptime, and bring back refueling, we can argue about this for days, but racing is not about conservation of tyres/ opening a rear wing to pass someone, also you dont see indycar getting a call to save fuel/ look after tyres, on street circuits.
When you are moving up the ranks in racing, you race to overtake, go as fast as possible. Not to look after tyres/ save fuel, take a look at karting for what I mean by pure racing

They have an allotment to last the race no problem...Where the fuel saving comes in is when the UNDER fill them trying to save a little.
Simple enough...demand they run full tanks.
