Refuelling was awful. It was all "try to pass in the pits". You could time between the on track overtakes with a calendar.

Dull, dull, dull.
Instead, we have waddling whales full of fuel passing in the pits from the tyre "undercut".. :roll:

Great trade off there... :wtf:
The current tire situation cannot be an argument in favor of in-race refueling, can it?

Having said that, the current tire situation is the consequence of having standardized tires and a designated tire supplier willing to "spice up" the racing.
We can go back to 2005 spec tyres. Run no stop races. Safest way!

It would not need the variable length intake (not legal in F1 today) they were because it had very little torque
Oh yes they are

(legal that is)

Ah, sorry, thought they were not.
