Clarkson style, funny, but nosense. So he want some sort of bumber cars with crazy drivers inside. It´s a shame he missed Silverstone GP watching Wimbledon final, he could have changed his mind with that awesome race with drivers assuming lots of risks as he´s asking for, cars resisting those contacts as he´s asking for, and so many overtakes as he´s asking for.
But he missed it, so now he´ll continue blaming F1 and asking for things wich are actually happening. As most fans btw
F1 has become too sterile, too predictable and too boring. We have may seen some action and wheel to wheel racing in last 2 races, but on the other hand its really boring as a whole. Mercedes is by far the best, then there are Ferrari and Redbull, a mile behind are the midfielders which can get to a 6th position only by a miracle and 2 miles further down are the Williams duo.
DRS overtakes are still fake, and tyre managment is killing the actual action. We are still seeing drivers cruising arround the track practically the whole race, some have better pace because they can afford it, others have to drive slow to make their deltas. Hamilton got his fastest lap at the end of the race with old tyres which only prooves how ridicolus the whole sport has become and how much slower he was driving to keep his tyres alive.
Like i said, the last two races were a bit more exciting, but overall F1 is still boring and too conservative.
And no, it is not the format that is wrong, the format is the only thing making sense.
Those are different arguments to what Clarkson was saying Proteus. Do you agree with Clarkson or not?
And I disagree with those arguments too. Do you think F1 was different 30 years back? It wasn´t. I can tell you about a race where both teammates of the top team collided, were stopped in the track for maybe 1-2 minutes, one of them rejoined the race completing a whole lap with a severly damaged front wing, went into pits to change it for a new, rejoined the race again, and after all this maybe 3-4 minutes lost, he finished on the podium... after 3-4 minutes lost!!
Current Mercedes dominance is laugable compared to McLaren-Honda dominance at the end of the 80s, and that´s called the golden days of F1... I wonder what people is asking for, really
People get confused with their own memories, I guess nostalgia make you remember things different to what they really were. F1 has always been a sport with some domination, or huge domination periods, when someone do his job better than the rest. Nothing new these days. But we enjoy some of the best races I´ve seen in decades, many decades
But blaming F1 is an sport by itself, and people enjoy playing to it
